Meet The “Notables”

The men and women chosen by Carlos Alvarado to analyze reforms to the State and public administration

Casa Presidencial announced on Friday the names of the “notables” who will participate in two committees to consider the reforms required by the State and public administration.

The Minister of the Presidency, Rodolfo Piza, explained that the monthly recommendations that the notables provide to the Government will be translated into new bills and executive decrees.

“Over the course of two years, what we will have is a gradual proposal, several proposals, and where we advance faster we will probably do it in the first months, in the other cases it will take more time, but in any case we will be informing you (the press) every month,” said Piza.

Former ministers, ex-deputies, former presidential candidates, academics and current government officials are among the group convened by President Carlos Alvarado.

According to Rodolfo Piza, the state reform commission will be for two years and will give monthly progress reports.

In the case of the commission for the reform of public administration, Minister Pilar Garrido said that it will be appointed for a term of four years.

“The mandate that we have today is what has guided us as the Government of the Republic: to work for what unites us, to work for those common longings (…) Today, again, our challenge is to strengthen ourselves in what unites us, in respect, in the love of Costa Rica that is bigger, stronger and more visionary than any pettiness there may be,” said President Carlos Alvarado.

Alvarado said that the concrete results will be what will serve to judge the progress of the work of both committees of notables.
