An editorial in Diario Libre presents a generalized complaint of the press on the lack of Medina administration officers’ availability to the press. The Medina administration ends on 16 August 2020, according to the Constitution.

Ines Aizpún, managing editor, writes: “The number of press releases have multiplied, reporting on the good works of the Police, the Army and the lesser ministries. All is well,” she writes. But she questions the difficulties in press contacts with the ministries of Public Works, Ministry of Environment, Education and Tourism.
