Quotes

...The President mentioned that even rice importation, which should have been left to the private sector in a competitive environment, must remain: "This February, the NFA Council approved the importation of an additional 800,000 metric tons, in fulfilment of our buffer stocking requirement… This July as well, we approved the immediate importation of 500,000 metric tons of rice through open bidding. The NFA also has the standby authority to import an additional 500,000 metric tons to prepare for the effects of calamities on harvests and rice prices."
"There should have been a compromise on the amount despite the disagreement between MARINA and the oil shippers on the minimum and maximum value of contributions and how long they would contribute to continue the fund since oil shippers contend the 10-centavo per liter contribution is high" said Colmenares
...Her reply: "You can't have an emotional court. ....we have professional duties."
"It's now time to impeach the President who has further pushed our countrymen into increasing poverty" it added
