The electricity superintendent, Rafael Velazco Espaillat resigned his position effective 31 July 2022, amidst strong criticism for the salary increases approved for himself and the main members of the SIE of up to 23%.

He was also in the regulation and tariffs department of the distributors Edesur and Edenorte, and had served as director of the commercial department of the Consorcio Energético Punta Cana Macao (CEPM), among others.

Tell ya what, this is going to be the President's first real serious crisis.

In the last few months many managers and directors have given themselves massive pay raises, and it's starting to come out in the wash.

I predict it will be a real headache for Abinader.

I agree and it don't think it is just the pay raises.
How can people pay themselves more than the law allows ❓
Optics are bad when you were asking people to pay more on their monthly bills.

It might also be an opportunity for him to get rid of the obvious offenders, have some nice showy trials and reverse all such salaries and increases, and perhaps also remove all who accepted them. Massive cleanup with easy targets.

Then replace everyone with handpicked replacements.

Win-win and also good for the country!

Did I mention how CORRUPT the GOVERNMENT RUN utility companies are here? I think so. This is a baby step to fixing the problems.
