Bolivia's MAS Party Resists Push to Reconsider 37 Bills

Bolivia's MAS political party says it will not reevaluate the 37 approved bills that aim to rectify flaws in contracts signed with foreign hydrocarbons companies, government news agency ABI reported.

The 37 bills are among the 41 approved at end-March. The Podemos party has insisted on more debate over the approved bills to annul an opening paragraph in each of them.

Three of the total 44 bills have yet to be approved.

MAS lawmaker Jorge Silva accused Podemos senators of having an "obstructionist attitude," ABI reported.

The contracts were signed under the nationalization program of President Evo Morales, also of MAS.
