Today’s good guy, tomorrow’s bad guy? The doors of these businesses are revolving to accommodate the country’s pleasure of playing musical chairs.

At first sight, there will be very few changes, as the two people have been colleagues for a very long time. The Professor has a disadvantage because his predecessor is known as corrupt and power-hungry, (no pun intended). Will we see changes in the future? The present power-cut seems to tell us there will be no changes, not now, not ever! Why? Because corruption is the main reason for people to want a position in one of the Edes. The bosses want to become rich in as short a time as possible. Unless that changes, the light will not improve in the households of the area of Edeeste. If the Professor is not a cut off that tree, yes, then we will see changes, and sooner, rather than later, I hope. I, for one, wish Professor Manuel Alberto Mejía Naut strength and success in his new post, and don’t forget, do not listen to Andres Julio Portes, he lies a lot.
