SEVILLA, 20 (EUROPA PRESS)
The Junta de Andalucía has urged the central government on Wednesday to address “as soon as possible” the reform of the regional funding system, because there is an “imperative need” that this process is carried out from transparency and ensuring equality of opportunities.
Before the plenary session of the Parliament, both the Andalusian Government and the groups of PSOE-A, PP-A, Podemos and IULV-CA have considered that the document on regional financing that was approved by a large majority in Parliament is fully in force.
The vice president of the Board and counselor of the Presidency, Local Administration and Democratic Memory, Jiménez Barrios has pronounced on the issue of regional funding before the plenary in line with his appearance to account for the new structure of the Andalusian Government, which has led the creation of the ministries of Economy, Finance and Public Administration and of Knowledge, Research and University, after the departure of María Jesús Montero, former Minister of Finance and Public Administration, to be the new Minister of Finance.
The vice president has guaranteed that this new structure reinforces and accentuates the road map that is being developed in this legislature, with the priority of job creation and that economic recovery reaches families, and with a marked social character.
He pointed out that the Andalusian government will act as the “best ally” of the new national executive to reverse the situation of “immobility and inaction” of the previous stage of the PP, always with an eye on defending the interests of the Andalusians.
Thus, he wanted to make it clear that the Board will demand from the Government of Pedro Sánchez the same issues that he sued the Executive of Mariano Rajoy, some as important as the need for a new financing system and that Andalusia be endowed with the investments that correspond to it. according to its percentage of population in the whole of the State.
He has defended that the financing agreement approved by a large majority of the Andalusian Chamber is the “guide” that drives the actions of the Board president, Susana Díaz. It has indicated that the president will ask Sanchez, in the meeting that will be held shortly, the meeting of the Fiscal and Financial Policy Council (CPFF) to address the debate.
Jiménez Barrios has placed value on the political, economic and social stability of what Andalusia enjoys today, which is allowing, among other things, to advance in the creation of employment.
For its part, the PP-A spokeswoman, Carmen Crespo, said that the position of Pedro Sanchez on regional funding evidence a “revenge” and a clear “slap” to Susana Diaz. He has reproached the president for his position of “conformism, surrendered and docile” after hearing the pronouncement of the President of the Government on financing.
Crespo wanted to make clear that the PP-A will meet with other groups when required, but has warned that Parliament has already positioned itself very clearly on regional financing and now “it’s up to” Susana Diaz to defend Andalusia from the “tyranny” that Pedro Sánchez is demonstrating with this land. In his opinion, Sánchez has two reasons not to open the debate on financing, which has to “pay favors” for the motion of censorship, at the expense of this community, and give a “slap” to Susana Díaz. He has shown his concern that “the war of egos and the ambition” of Susana Díaz and Pedro Sánchez have turned Andalusia into a “battlefield”.
The deputy of We can Carmen Lizárraga has indicated that the reform of the financing system “is the only important thing for Andalusia” and has valued that a meeting of the groups is going to be convened to defend the agreement that emerged from the Parliament. He pointed out that Pedro Sánchez’s position on financing is “unacceptable”.
He wanted to make it clear that Podemos will continue to defend Parliament’s position on regional financing and has denounced that 220,000 Andalusians are left out each year due to underinflation suffered by Andalusia.
The president and spokesman of the group of Citizens, Juan Marín, has pointed out that Sánchez’s pronouncement on regional financing makes the elaboration of public accounts “complicated”. He has indicated that Cs would re-vote “no” to the Parliament’s document on financing and has pointed out, however, that they will attend meetings with the other groups if they are called, although he wanted to make it clear that the working group has already completed its meetings. tasks and is not activated.
Also, Marín considered that it was not necessary, at this stage of the legislature, this new restructuring in the Executive, when it was only a matter of replacing Montero with another person. He has indicated that these changes do not obey to improve efficiency and only “confuse” citizens.
The parliamentary spokesman of IULV-CA, Antonio Maíllo, has indicated that although the Junta says that Andalusia has a “friendly” government with the arrival of Pedro Sánchez to Moncloa, until now it has been little friend, especially after the pronouncement of the president on the regional financing system.
He indicated that the parliamentary agreement on regional financing is still valid and must be ratified and the Andalusian Government has to rule after the new scenario proposed by Sanchez, and has asked the Board to require the Government that the CPFF be convened before the round of Sanchez with the autonomic presidents.
The deputy of the PSOE-A Ángeles Férriz has defended the “sensitivity” of María Jesús Montero on the need for a new funding model and has criticized that the PP-A “did not raise its voice even once” during the previous Government of Mariano Rajoy to denounce the underfinancing of Andalusia.
He has indicated that the “only” responsible for not having a fair financing is the Popular Party, because he did not want to address the debate during the years he has been in the Government of the nation.
