A press release from the National Association of Private Enterprise (ANEP) reads:
This Friday (17 August 2012), the Legislature issued law reforms to remove social control in autonomous entities as an attempt to silence our Association and Civil Societies in their fight to defend democracy and enforce the law, the Constitution and the decisions of the Constitutional Chamber.
In response, the organized private sector will continue to encourage measures and actions to curb politicians in their intention to gain full power and destroy our democracy.
We will not yield to the FMLN, GANA, PES and CN factions who are attempting to deliver national sovereignty to the Court of Managua, Nicaragua, which is illegal and illegitimate.
ANEP as part of civil society will continue to defend democracy and institutions in El Salvador until the rule of law is restored.
