National Assembly will question two national leaders, among them the Panama Canal Administrator.

The plenary of the National Assembly has approved a proposal to call Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Luis Quijano before the body to answer questions about the waterway's finances and the progress of the expansion. The proposal was presented by a group of deputies from different parties, including Leandro Avila and Raúl Pineda of the PRD, CD Deputy Dalia Bernal and Miguel Salas of the Panameñista party.

The administrator will answer seven questions, including official queries into the amount of the contributions from the Canal to the government and the status of the claims of cost overruns experienced by expansion contractor GUPC. The assembly has not yet announced a date for Quijano's appearance.
