San José, Jul 28 (elmundo.cr) – President Carlos Alvarado referred to the video of the former executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, where he indicates that “this week on the legislative agenda, The Executive Power has prioritized the law that would declare Costa Rica free from the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons, as you know I have a conviction, not partisan at the national level and I remain firm in it.
Given this, Alvarado stressed that “we must prohibit the exploration and exploitation of oil in Costa Rica.”
In addition, he thanked Christiana Figueres for “her commitment to always.”
In addition, he called on the deputies saying that “they have the possibility of highlighting our leadership in environmental matters.”
“Let’s send the message to the world to reverse the climate crisis,” he concluded.
This Tuesday the President of the Republic, Carlos Alvarado, and the Minister of the Presidency, Geannina Dinarte, issued on Tuesday an executive decree to revoke the other legislative files on the plenary agenda (No. 43126-MP).
These are two bills to be discussed and approved in the first debate: Amnesty for the formalization and collection of social charges and the Law that declares the national territory free from exploration and exploitation of oil and gas.
