Panamanians share their opinions on how the government treats the poor

Economy

Eliécer has dedicated 20 years of his life to selling vegetables and fruits

INTERVIEW

Eliécer Girón, 54 years old and more than 20 selling vegetables and fruits in Perejil, speaks without seeds in the language about the reality in which Panama lives.

What is your assessment of safety?

For Perejil, the police do not give the round or make operatives, robberies are given every time especially when it is fortnight and, in the morning, when people get off the bus to work.

How do you see the health services offered by the country?

In the health centers there are no medicines, the Government should watch over the poor. Those who pay for insurance will attend and never find anything, what is worth going to a polyclinic or medical center. The Government says that it wants the benefit for the people and it does not show it, the patients have to resort to private pharmacies and buy the expensive medicines with the short that they carry in their pockets.

Do you think that the deputies make good laws?
