“Sánchez owed 6,000 euros to every Spaniard” – This Is Ardee
The leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has not ruled out that Spain will have to adopt adjustment and austerity measures in the future because the current government “has not had to comply with any economic regulations by lifting the deficit, debt and expenditure limits”, resulting in a debt of the country of 300,000 million and accused Pedro Sánchez that “every Spaniard has a debt of 6,000 euros”.
This is what he said in an interview with El Mundo this Sunday, in which he assured that the first thing he would do when he governs would be to explain the state of Spain’s finances and to reduce the number of ministers.
“What we will do will be a verification of the economic, budgetary, debt and deficit reality and on this basis we will make proposals. What I guarantee is that the government will be more efficient with 30% fewer departments. And when people see that a helicopter, a Falcon and an Audi are not used to traveling 300 km, that no minister has the Falcon Gold Card, that the government reduces its structure by at least 30 %, we will start it to give an example for people. , underline.
Feijóo also criticized that the bank tax the government plans to introduce is “wasteful and carries a double risk” that citizens will end up paying. “I am convinced that the bank tax will be passed on to citizens: either increase commissions by a few cents, or increase interest on loans, or zero refunds on deposits, or less loans. As far as energy is concerned, obviously it has important results, which is why I want them to invest. If we impose a tax on them, exempt them at 99% if they invest in Spain,” he explained.
Likewise, he acknowledged that he trusted the polls which show that his party wins the elections because “when there is a trend, it begins to have credibility” and promised that he would protect the Catalan if he the fact himself as President of Spain also declares Spanish as “it is not a foreign language in Catalonia”.
In the interview, the popular leader lamented the “satiation” of the population with “a president in recession and a government in crisis”. “In recent months, everyone agrees that the PP has risen and fallen above all to the benefit of the Spaniards and the PSOE. The PSOE could not govern Spain today,” he said, referring to the credibility it deserves in recent polls.
In this context, he recalled that his party had recently won “very resounding victories”, verifying the absolute majority in Galicia, “a spectacular result in Madrid” or “the historic victory in Andalusia”, so he believes that these results can also be transferred to the federal elections.
“I want to repeat the results of Galicia, Andalusia and Madrid. I will not give up a sufficient majority to be able to govern with the ministers of the PP. That is the goal. Some thought it was naive, but I think they’re already starting to think it’s possible,” he said.
In this sense, he indicated that if there were elections this Sunday, he was convinced that he would have “a sufficient majority to govern” and assured that he had no intention of concluding a governmental pact. “There are two ways to govern Spain: populism with a vague PSOE and its pro-independence forces holding the key to government and laws, or a demonstrable party in the face of crises, with political and managerial experience. I think the Spaniards will tell us that,” he said.
Dialogue with Catalonia
Referring to a possible dialogue with Catalonia in the event of a government, Feijóo added that the Catalan constitutional space is an orphan space and that his project in Catalonia and the Basque Country is to “represent” it. This is why he assures them that they will respect the constitution. “Within the Constitution, we are very interested in the Catalan and Basque regions because we are autonomists and constitutionalists,” he said.
This dialogue with Catalonia will explore ideas to improve the economy, reduce taxes or investment opportunities, although it opposes dialogue with ERC “to achieve a Catalonia where Spanish is a foreign language, where non-compliance with sanctions is negotiated, where incitement to hatred must be prosecuted and the removal of this type from the penal code is demanded”.
Concerning the renewal of the CGPJ in the current legislature, the president of the PP reiterates that with each passing week he has more difficulty in reaching an agreement and specifies that the government “has an interest in the TC and me to be the closed control thinks it will do what you want by reaching an agreement with ERC, Bildu and Podemos throughout the legislature.
“Our terms of renewal of the CGPJ are written. We have refrained from reforming the law of justice during this legislature, with the commitment that in six months the new Council will send us a proposal to the groups for judges to elect judges, and we have set minimum requirements: that you must not have been a Minister or Secretary of State during the last seven years; that to be president of the chamber of the Supreme Court, it is necessary to have 25 years of service in the judiciary and to create a thousand posts of judges in five years”, underlined.
