Millennium Challenge account projects provide basis for propaganda
The online newspaper El Faro has reported that there is a split in the executive board which oversees the projects funded by dollars from the US Millennium Challenge Account. The division arises from the concern of certain members of the council that president Tony Saca is using announcement of various projects of the Millennium fund for propaganda purposes. These dissenting members are the representatives of the NGOs and the private sector who sit on the board. The governmental members who are on the board continue to support Saca. Two comments: 1. No one should be surprised. 2. The Salvadoran people have seen such self-promotion by the current government often enough that they recognize it for what it is.
