The Junta de Andalucía He has been warning for months that they will ask for a bilateral commission between the Government of Spain and the regional Executive because «Andalusia neither wants nor should be less than Catalonia», As confirmed this Wednesday by the President of the Andalusian Parliament, Marta Bosquet (Cs).
This has been asserted by the president of the Parliament in an interview in Canal Sur Television, collected by Europa Press, after the Chairman of the Board, Juanma Moreno, will notify this Tuesday that he is going to request the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, «Formally» the convening of the bilateral table between the Central executive and the Junta de Andalucía in line with the dialogue table that meets this Wednesday in Barcelona between the central and Catalan governments.
Marta Bosquet has emphasized that “Andalusia neither wants nor should be less than Catalonia”, as well as remarked that his party, Citizens (Cs), “Defends the equality of all Spaniards.”
He has pointed out that “The comparisons are odious, but it is sad and unfortunate” That this Wednesday a bilateral commission between the Government and the Generalitat of Catalonia meets with Pedro Sánchez “in charge of it” when the head of the central Executive took two and a half years to receive the president of the Board, Juanma Moreno, in the Palacio de la Moncloa after his inauguration as Andalusian president.
Bosquet has remarked in this regard that Andalusia is “one of the autonomous communities with the largest population” in Spain, and has considered in this line that the meeting of the dialogue table between the Government and the Generalitat is “a cake without hands to all Andalusians , not to the president of the Board or to the autonomous government.
The president of Parliament has added that Moreno has “All the right in the world” in requesting that bilateral table between the Government and the Junta that is included in the Statute of Autonomy of Andalusia, and has even pointed out that the 1.7 billion euros planned by the Government for the expansion of the airport The Prat of Barcelona that has been suspended they would be “well received” in Andalusia.
On the other hand, Marta Bosquet has celebrated as a “Great joy” that the Plenary of the Andalusian Chamber recovers in its session this Wednesday the possibility that 100% of its 109 deputies can attend in person simultaneously to the same for the first time after a year and a half of pandemic.
Has valued that «It is a sign that little by little we are managing to win the battle» the coronavirus, and has pointed out that he already “missed” a plenary session with full capacity among his deputies, although he has admitted that, “unfortunately”, he fears that there are “many” of said parliamentarians who “are in campaign mode” for the proximity of the next regional elections, scheduled for the end of 2022 if there is no advance of its call, a hypothesis before which the president of the Chamber has again expressed her rejection.
Along these lines, he has argued that, although the “good news” It would be for the Board to approve new Budgets for 2022, it would be “better” to extend those of 2021 for next year if the Government of PP and Cs does not achieve the necessary support among the opposition to take the accounts than an electoral advance.
Marta Bosquet wanted to make it clear that, in his opinion, “it would be bad news” if the 2021 Budgets had to be extended, because “it is desirable” that there would be new accounts for next year, and that they even go ahead with “unanimity »Of the groups of the Chamber in a moment of« recovery »of the autonomous community after the crisis derived from the pandemic.
However, he has insisted that, if the new Budgets could not be approved “because the opposition groups were irresponsible and did not support them, it would not be the first or the last time that it is possible to work with extended Budgets, which would always be better than an electoral advance”, as it has settled Marta Bosquet.
