President Martin Vizcarra on Thursday affirmed his administration will allocate the funds recently-elected Lima Mayor Jorge Muñoz
will need to execute works.
"I have told Muñoz he will not have any budgetary problems. I guarantee we will finance the new Lima Mayor's works ahead," the Head of State told Santa Rosa Radio.
According to him, Lima is in need of significant infrastructure investments. Thus, elected Mayor Muñoz
is concerned about the budget he will receive when he assumes his duties.
"I tell him: 'do not worry, we will give you the budget you require; do not worry,'" the statesman added.
Furthermore, the top official informed he will hold meetings with the elected mayors for Metropolitan Lima districts.
The Head of State also recalled Congress' second vote for the creation of an Autonomous Transport Authority is still pending.
