The investigations revealed that the president of the competition commission, in the days preceding the oral exam, he had revealed the topics that would be examined. Six competitors have been identified with certainty, benefiting from the revelations, now under investigation for abuse of office and disclosure of official secrets.

I will immediately confront the national party to proceed to the commissioner to work in the administrative shift that awaits us in October. We look forward to developments and, as always, we trust in the work of the judiciary ”.
