The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has called the Conference of Presidents held today in Salamanca “disappointing” and has flatly rejected, in his speech at the end of the meeting, the favorable economic treatment that the Country will have Basque and Catalonia in the distribution of covid funds. “Multilevel Spain is a Spain privileges“.

The Andalusian president has been forceful in stating that Andalusia “is under-financed. We lose 4 million euros a day, more than a billion euros a year, and we are also going to stop receiving 2.4 billion euros less than in 2021.” Moreno has summarized that “we cannot allow more resources to be given to the richest communities” to the detriment of the poorest. “What kind of progressivism is this practiced by this government?”

After beginning by thanking the Conference for having developed in a cordial atmosphere, that is, in the ways, “basically, the results have not been as expected” and has pointed out several reasons. The first of them has been “the rush, a diffuse agenda and celebrate it on the last day of July.” He has also indicated that “a sum of monologues one president after another is not the same as a dialogue. ”

To improve, Moreno has asked that the relation of the Conference and that “we rethink the model”, because the Conferences “are useful, but it must go beyond the will. They must have a total utility. The agreements must be fulfilled”.

Along these lines, the popular leader explained that in this regard, the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, has spoken “in the same line as the Lehendakari,” betting that the Conferences “are a space for debate, and not for decision-making. decisions “. “That does not sound good to me,” because, in his opinion, “there would be no multilateralism, but bilaterality “.

The president of the Andalusian Board has also abounded in that “in a year we have not advanced anything” since the autonomous communities “continue without receiving the European recovery funds“. He has concluded that, if they do not arrive,” the Government should advance them.


The popular leader has also strongly criticized “concern and anger” the situation of inequality in the autonomous communities with respect to the Basque Country and Catalonia. “For the Basque Country to attend this Table, they have been given three new taxes: VAT on remote transactions, tax on digital services and tax on financial transactions.

“It is not at all reasonable that they sit down to give them new taxes, and therefore, receive more income so that they come, when it is an obligation come “. Likewise, he has condemned that Catalonia has not attended” and that next Monday they will sit at a bilateral table with Catalonia. I mean, they don’t come here and then there’s a specific table. Here something is wrong. We do not see a fair deal, and in Andalusia we are not going to allow privileged deals “.

Moreno has also had time to refer to the vaccination plan against Covid-19, in the same line in which the Andalusian executive has been pronouncing in recent dates: that they need more vaccines.

He wanted to make it clear, first of all, that prior to the meeting, the Government has offered “a press conference to announce that four million vaccines are coming. It makes no sense that (this) is not said at the meeting.”

For the Andalusian president, and thanks to vaccines, the criterion of accumulated incidence is less relevant today than a year ago, because with the same rate of infections there are a third of hospitalizations as a few months ago. “The cumulative incidence is becoming less relevant data”, and has proposed that other data be taken such as hospital admissions, ICU admissions or deaths.

Likewise, it has indicated that it is still urgent a legal reform that gives the communities tools to enact measures. The Andalusian case is especially significant, since in Andalusia, the TSJA has two rooms (Seville and Granada) “that interpret the norm differently”, while in Spain there is now a state “of ungovernability due to the lack of of that norm “.
