WhatsApp exchange between Ribera and Bravo

Ribera and Bravo already had a WhatsApp exchange at the end of last week and agreed to see each other shortly. This Monday afternoon they finally closed a meeting, which will take place this Thursday, September 22.

The PP’s energy “rescue” plan for families and businesses based on energy saving proposes, among other measures, the creation of an energy AIREFreview the formula for setting the price of energy, simplification of the taxation on the electricity bill and the savings bonus achieved by families and companies, as well as not giving up any source of energy emissions – nuclear extension, cogeneration and green hydrogen -.

Feijo accompanied this energy plan with a letter to the President of the Government on September 12 in which he expressed his willingness to discuss these measures and even negotiate their implementation. In his opinion, the “gravity of the moment” requires “swift responses, courageous measures and everyone’s responsibility.”

After assuring that the decisions adopted today on energy will mark the lives of Spaniards, not only in the coming months but in the coming decades, Feijo is convinced in that letter that “it is worth the Government agreeing with the alternative to a State policy” in order to achieve reforms that give citizens a “more affordable, sustainable and competitive energy in the present and the future.

The PP’s Deputy Secretary of Economy himself, when presenting his party’s document, already said that what they are proposing are measures that can set Spain’s energy position in the next 15 or 20 years and they need consensus. “These are exceptional situations that require exceptional measures,” he proclaimed.
