Few signings and a lot of moving the bench in search of a new boost for the team. The President of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, yesterday gave more keys to the Government remodeling that has been guessing for more than ten days. The Consell del Botànic agreed last night in an extraordinary plenary session the dismissal of the regional secretaries of Culture, Rachel Tamaritand Economy, Rebecca Torro. This is an essential procedure to be able to be appointed ‘conselleras’ by the head of the autonomous Executive, since their position is incompatible with the appointment as members of the cabinet. The first has a clear destination: to replace Vincent Marza at the head of the Ministry of Education, after the leader of Compromís presented his resignation on Wednesday to dedicate himself to the work of his party, Més.

The coalition agreed this Thursday to raise its proposal for the new head of the educational area, which is up to it by virtue of the government agreement. The surprise, because she was not in the pools, has been that of Rebecca Torro, militant of the PSPV-PSOE, from Ontinyent, and with a key role in the negotiation of the battery plant that Volkswagen plans to build in Parc Sagunt. Torró, from the Ministry of Economy, is the person who contacted the management of the German automobile giant after learning that they were looking for a location in Spain for their new infrastructure. At that time, Extremadura and Aragón, in addition to Catalonia, formed the list of possible locations that the Ministry of Industry had put on the table.

The directors of Volkswagen, who were unaware of the potential of Sagunto, with a commercial and industrial port and direct connection to the Mediterranean railway corridor and the A-7 motorway, modified their initial approach until they were convinced of the Valencian land. Torró, together with other senior officials such as the Secretary of the Economic Model, María José Mira, or the Director of Internationalization, Mari Parra, or the General Director of Urban Planning, Vicent García Nebot, He has been part of the negotiating team with the Germans. He was also the person who contacted the Chinese businessman Chen Wu Keping to import medical supplies from China when the pandemic broke out. A risky operation, due to its cost and the Asian’s weak experience as a supplier.

Pending the official confirmation of the award, this baggage places Torró as the new person in charge of the Department of Territorial Policy, the department that has to develop all the urban management of Parc Sagunt, not only of the land of the gigafactory, whose plan is pending final approval to reclassify them. It also has to give a boost to the land that will house auxiliary supplier industries and the 240-hectare photovoltaic mega-plant that Iberdrola will build to serve the battery factory. Torró has experience in urban planning because she was General Director of Housing.

Ximo Puig dispenses with his Minister of Finance for seven years

Torró’s entry into Territorial Policy will mean the transfer to the Ministry of Finance of Arcadi Spain, a person very close to Puig, of whom he was chief of staff. Spain replaces Vicent Soler, who has been in charge of public accounts for seven years. With a moderate disposition, a good negotiator and a better connoisseur of the twists and turns of the Administration, Spain will have the mission of negotiating the last budgets of the Botánic before the elections in May 2023. Well valued by Compromís, who consider him inclined to reach consensus, Spain is gaining experience as it is his second portfolio at the Consell.

The ‘minister’ of Health, Ana Barceló, also changes responsibility. The manager of the department during the two years of the coronavirus pandemic, will assume the spokesperson for the socialist group in the Cortes after the resignation of Manuel Mata, who has chosen to return to his life as a criminal lawyer for Jaime Febrer, the construction businessman who the Azud case is at the center. Barceló thus closes a stage of management to move on to another of parliamentary and legislative negotiation, a position directly connected to the Palau that Puig did not want to leave in the hands of someone who was not part of her trusted group. Barceló is considered very close to the regional secretary for Institutional Promotion and Territorial Cohesion, Alfred Boixa person from Puig’s hard core at the Palau de la Generalitat, together with the regional secretary of the Presidency, Andrew Ferrer.

Ximo Puig plans to sign the dismissals and appointments so that the portfolio transfers take place on Monday

The new or new head of Health should be known this Saturday. Ximo Puig plans to sign the ceases and appointments so that the portfolio transfers take place on Monday. It remains to be seen if the Barceló operation has a greater scope. His name has sounded like a possible mayor in the Alicante City Council, now in the hands of the Popular Party. The province is one of Puig’s obsessions.

This key also explains the replacement of the ‘consellera’ of Innovation, Caroline Pascual, whose department is based in Alicante. A telecommunications engineer with a very technical profile, she was one of Ximo Puig’s bets for the second legislature and has had the opportunity of him. But the socialist baron wants to raise the political profile in the last year of the legislature. No doubt about whether he will be able to fulfill that role, Josefina Bueno, currently a territorial senator and before general director of Universities, is emerging as a substitute. The return to Bueno to the Government would leave her place in the Upper House vacant, which could be occupied by Vicent Soler as the final finishing touch to her career after leaving the Ministry of Finance. That would be the end of the sudoku game that Puig has been working on for ten days.
