The national controversy generated around the energy saving measures that will come into force next Wednesday, August 10, has forced the Government to meet with the autonomous communities and back down on what seemed to be its summer measure. The meeting is perceived from the popular party of Madrid as a rectification of the department of Theresa Rivera that gives “the reason” to the President Isabel Diaz Ayuso.
has been the general secretary of the PP in Madrid, Alfonso Serrano, who has shown this feeling hours after knowing the urgent call between the counselors of the branch and the Minister of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge.
“We have had to endure for days the attacks of the Government of Spain towards the Community and towards the president for denouncing what now precisely the Government of Spain is rectifying”, explained the general secretary of the PP in Madrid.

For all these reasons, Serrano has underlined that the president of the Community and of the party in Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, “He was right when denouncing the lack of responsibility and dialogue with the communities and the speed in approving measures with a negative impact on economic sectors in the region.”
The words of the regional PP are complemented by those of its leader Isabel Díaz Ayuso. The president has manifested herself on her social networks as soon as the repercussion of the appointment was known.
In your personal account Twitter, the leader of the Madrid PP has accused the Ministry of Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge of “improvising a technical meeting” as a rectification after “the chaos caused”.
After the chaos caused and the level of insults from the Government, now they rectify… They improvise a technical meeting, without an agenda, when the problem they have created is of the first political level. The minister must meet in a timely manner with her advisers. https: //t.co/9wIzo9Eu42

In addition, the regional president did not like that Ribera was not present at the meeting with the councilors and that the one who attended was a representative of the Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE), the body that coordinates these policies.
The Government of the Community of Madrid considers that the minister’s movement is an example of how the Government does not want to “show its face” before the regions.

“The impromptu and low-profile meeting that the minister has called reflects the irresponsibility, lack of rigor and seriousness of a government that has decreed new measures in the energy sector, without consultation, without collaboration or dialogue with the communities,” he declared. Serrano in a statement sent to the media.
In his opinion, it has to be “the minister herself who convenes the councilors of the branch to address these measures and to address the differences between communities and between large and small municipalities.”
