The most critical regions

Ayacucho It is the fourth region in the country with the largest number of provinces and districts. There are a total of 11 provincial municipalities and 115 district communes.

Well, of the 115 district municipalities, there are 14 that spent only between 5% and 10%. And there is a group of 18 local governments that executed less than 5%; that is, a very low progress, taking into account that we are already halfway through the year.

The five most critical districts of Ayacucho They are: Pacapausa (1.7% progress), Ocaña (1.5%), San Pedro de Palco (1.3%), Santa Ana de Huaycahuacho (1%) and Totos (0.5%).

This last commune has more than three million soles. It turns out that almost all of this budget was allocated to a single irrigation project in Chacabamba and the progress is 0%.

After Ayacucho, there are two regions that follow with a high number of municipalities reporting. The Ministry of Economy assigned 23 billion to the municipalities this year, which did not even reach 5% in the execution of the expenditure for works.

On the one hand there is the region LimeThere are ten municipalities with very little progress. In metropolitan Lima we have in this situation the municipalities of Pueblo Libre (1.7%) and Breña (0%). Meanwhile, the other eight districts with very low progress belong to the other provinces of the region.

The situation is similar in Huancavelicawhere there are also ten municipalities with an expenditure of less than 5% of their budgets allocated for works.

There is also Acraquia, which has a budget of fourteen million soles and the execution is 1.5%. A water project has the largest budget, in the order of eight million soles, and the progress is 0%.
