PP presidents announced appeals against partial debt forgiveness in Catalonia

Popular barons attacked the agreement between PSOE and ERC in a coordinated series of messages on social networks. Some of them expect that they will appeal to the courts against the economic agreement that the socialists reached with the Republicans so that the State assumes 20% of the debt contracted by the Generalitat of Catalonia (15,000 million euros), despite the fact that, according to the text of the agreement, the mechanism applies to other autonomous communities. “A legal change in the general scope will be processed for all Autonomous Communities in the common regime that allows the State to acquire part of the autonomous debt with it, due to the negative impact of the cycle of economy,” the document says, but the regional presidents of the PP have nevertheless questioned this route. Popular barons questioned the mechanism and that it was agreed upon by both sides of Catalonia. “They will forgive them more money than what is represented in our entire Budget,” complained the sources of the autonomous PP.

Andalusia. Minutes after the agreement between PSOE and ERC was announced, the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Manuel Moreno, asked the central government for “the same treatment” for his autonomous community. In a message to X he wrote: “Sánchez has forgiven the independence movement 15 billion euros of debt plus 1.3 billion euros of interest. Andalusia is well governed and does not need debt forgiveness. Therefore, it demands: 17,800 million euros, equal to the population of the transfer of Sánchez to the ERC and Junts and a compensation fund that allows us to recover the 15,000 million euros lost in Andalusia in the current financial system of the region. According to sources from of the Board, the 16,300 million forgiven in Catalonia (15,000 million debt, plus 1,300 million savings in interest payments), “equivalent to a forgiveness of 2,099 euros per inhabitant, according to the latest census data. of Catalonia published by the National Institute of Statistics. This is where the 17.8 billion claimed by this autonomous community come from, according to the latest data from the Andalusian census published by INE. Although the Government has assured that debt forgiveness will be available to all the common communities of the regime, Andalusia rejects this route “because it is not necessary.” Andalusia owes 25,409 million to the Autonomous Liquidity Fund and a reduction of 20%, like the one agreed by PSOE and ERC, means 5,081.8 million, a third of what the ERC signed.

Aragon. For Jorge Azcón, the PSOE “continues to make first and second class Spaniards” and “the forgiveness of part of the Catalan debt agreed between the PSOE and the ERC is completely useless.” The Aragonese leader believes that the agreement “affects everyone and creates inequality among the Spanish.” “What Catalonia does not pay, we all pay,” X channel.

Cantabria. “Enough of the rage!” said the president of Cantabria, who is also president of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces. “We cannot accept different treatment between citizens who should be equal or economic advantages that discriminate against other regions,” pointed to X.

Castile and León. “As I warned the Senate, from Castilla y León we will not remain silent in the face of injustice in terms of financing and debt forgiveness. This agreement creates inequality among all Spaniards and creates favoritism that will cause grievances for our land and for Spain in general. We will go to court to defend Castilla y León and the equality of all Spaniards,” announced the Castilian president, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, in X.

Extremadura The president of Extremadura described the investiture agreement between PSOE and ERC as “unworthy”. “I reject this completely unworthy agreement, which includes destroying the principle of equality between the autonomous communities and granting privileges that are incompatible with the constitutional framework that protects all Spaniards,” pointed to his account in the social network Maria Guardiola.

community of Madrid. The president of the community, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, did not clearly mention the agreement, but stated that “Sánchez is a danger to Spain” and that “the silence of the PSOE makes the socialists of all the communities independent, ” as published in X.

Region of Murcia. Fernando López Miras mentioned the information that the agreement includes “the improvement of public services and public resources in Catalonia” and financing. “Without counting other autonomous communities? We will not allow more inequality. “We will ask for protection in the courts of justice,” spread across networks. In a statement, the Government of the Community pointed out: “We make it clear that we will not allow further inequality and, if necessary, we will seek protection in the courts of Justice” and blamed the investiture agreement for “abandoning 84 % of Spaniards.” ” not Catalans. Murcia claimed to be the worst funded community and demanded a “new financing model (that) should be the result of negotiation and consensus between all the autonomous communities, not the imposition of blackmail of some.” He also pointed out that the agreement “is a model à la carte for independence and secessionists, while it condemns the rest of Spain to settle for crumbs” and asked for the forgiveness of Murcia’s debt to State: “If the President of the acting Government is willing to forgive the debts, the Region of Murcia should be the first to benefit from that step.

Valencian Community. The Valencian Government led by the popular Carlos Mazón is preparing an institutional declaration of rejection tomorrow, Friday, as expected by the regional Executive.

The national leadership of the PP also strongly criticized the announcement of the agreement. The popular president, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, assured that Sánchez “is ready to give up everything to stay in power.” “15,000 million euros from all Spaniards for the ERC votes on an investiture pact that grants amnesty and opens the door to a referendum in Catalonia. Money for a vote. The worst thing is that no one knows the limit of their immorality,” he criticized in X. Also the general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, Reacting on his official X account to the agreement reached between PSOE and ERC for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez as President of the Government. “For the PSOE there is always one more step of self-destruction,” said Gamarra, criticizing the photo in which the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños; appeared to sign the agreement with the leader of Esquerra, Oriol Junqueras, this afternoon. “After the photo with the woman convicted of apologizing for terrorism and with the fugitive from Justice, the photo of the agreement with the man convicted of sedition and corruption appeared,” wrote Gamarra, where the agreement “means the purchase of votes that Sánchez needs to pledge the equality of all Spaniards, the rule of law and the resources of citizens to access the same services.” He also believes that the agreement is the prelude to a referendum: “He predicts many transfers in the coming days because, as Pere Aragonès recognized, after the amnesty comes the referendum on self-determination.”

From the socialist ranks, the Minister of the Presidency, who announced the agreement with Salvador Illa, called some of the messages from the famous barons “deceptions”: “I saw the presidents of the PP region launching a deceptions about the ERC agreement. I repeat what I said, which is in public agreement: the measure will be extended to all the autonomous communities and will serve to facilitate their financial autonomy. It is a pity for the PP, without those they don’t lie”, Félix Bolaños spread X.
