Venezuelan government plans to build dwellings in 60,000 hectares
The government is looking for the "best plots of land," remarked the Minister of Housing and Habitat
The Venezuelan government is to acquire up to 60,000 hectares of land in order to accomplish the goals set by the "Great Mission Housing Venezuela," informed the Minister of Housing and Habitat, Ricardo Molina.
The government official explained that, so far, the government has 13,000 hectares of land, where 260,000 dwellings have been built since mid-April 2012 until present.
Likewise, the government expects to build additional 400,000 dwellings, out of which, 87,000 will be delivered by the end of the year.
Moreover, the minister denied that construction of dwellings had slowed down after the October 7 presidential election.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
