«ARENA and FMLN forgave each other their sins, and they remained calm. That is what they agreed. You can’t commemorate something like that» – Ernesto Castro

In the opinion of Ernesto Castro, president of the Legislative Assembly, the signing of the Peace Accords in 1992, rather than bringing peace to the population, resulted in an amnesty pact for ARENA and FMLN. «What the Peace Accords granted was an amnesty pact. ARENA and FMLN forgave each other their sins, and they remained calm. That is what they agreed. You can’t commemorate something like that» — he mentioned.

President Castro pointed out that the Legislative Assembly will not pass an act referring to the date of January 16. It will only be addressed in the 37th plenary session, which will be held on this day.

ARENA and FMLN will be canceled by the population.

Another point raised by the president of the Legislative Assembly, Ernesto Castro, was about the rumors of a possible cancellation of the ARENA and FMLN parties. He mentioned that within the Legislative Assembly’s agenda, it is not contemplated to promote the cancellation of both political institutes.

«They can sleep soundly. The Legislative Assembly is not going to cancel them; it will be the population in the elections who will decide and who will cancel them» — he said.

The third aspect that Ernesto Castro analyzed in the interview space was the position taken by the Central American University (UCA) on the decision of the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice to reopen the case of the massacre of six Jesuit priests and two of his collaborators.

Castro regretted that the position of the UCA seemed to go against the sentence of the Chamber, despite the fact that they were all priests of the Society of Jesus.

«The UCA said in a statement that the Chamber should have informed it of the decision to reopen the case. Did the Chamber have to report on what it decides? « — he argued.

Deputy Ernesto Castro mentioned that by 2022, a new system of pension savings funds will be worked out by the Legislative Assembly. He mentioned that it is one of the requests that the Salvadoran population has expressed, the payment of fair pensions in accordance with the Salvadoran reality.
