Veto override for electric substation in Paraguay

At its regular session, the Municipal Council of Asunción, Paraguay, decided to override the veto to the construction of the substation of the National Electricity Administration (ANDE) in the Trinidad neighborhood, specifically in the grounds of the Ampande.
This decision was adopted by the plenary after the visit of the president of the energy regulator, Victor Romero; technical manager, Walter Causarano, and planning director, Fabian Caceres, at the session.
ANDE referents argued that the substation is necessary to ensure electricity service and that there are still technical possibilities of building underground structures in Paraguay.
Several aldermen Bogota before override the veto construction, argued that a substation may have negative consequences on the population. Elvio Segovia (PDP) said ANDE technicians have technical responsibility, but councilors have a political commitment to citizenship.
In turn, Antonio Apuril (Independiente) invited his colleagues to “googling” for information, since, according investigated, it is scientifically proven that a substation does not cause complications citizens who argue to avoid installation in populated places.
Romero told media that the Municipality approves construction plans of buildings on the avenue Santa Teresa exist before a report of ANDE in which the entity guarantees the energy supply to these structures.
