The spokesperson for Junts in Congress, Míriam Nogueras, reaffirmed herself this Wednesday before the Plenary in her vote against the three decree laws presented by the coalition Government and has suggested the convenience of withdrawing them and starting over.

He did so during his intervention in the debate on the decree relating to aid to alleviate the consequences of the economic crisis, in which he criticized Pedro Sánchez's Executive for the way in which it has managed the processing of these three decrees.

Nogueras has reproached the Executive for not having negotiated these measures with his party before approving them in the Council of Ministers and that it was necessary to reach a "limit situation" so that he understood that when Junts warned the PSOE that they would not give them their Votes "for nothing" meant exactly that.

The spokesperson for the party of former Catalan president Carles Puigdemont has emphasized that with its refusal to support these three laws that affect different matters, Junts is not breaching the agreement it sealed with the PSOE in exchange for its support for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. .


"We started this adventure, both parties, knowing the risks. They have not done it well and when they started to do it well it was probably already too late. We cannot accompany them in that mistake of theirs, they have time to rectify it," he explained. Nogueras.

In this context, he has urged the Executive to make "the decree of social measures without tricks" to obtain the vote of its seven deputies and has indicated his willingness to continue negotiating with the Government.

Nogueras has insisted on several occasions that in Moncloa they must assume that they "do not have a parliamentary majority" to do what they want and that it is "irresponsible" to approve decrees without agreeing on them first, seeking only after the fact the support of the partners for their validation. "They have greatly complicated a negotiation that was very simple, they have confused dialogue with negotiating and agreeing," she asserted.


"Do your job well, make the decree by agreeing with Junts and you will have the support of Junts," he reiterated, issuing the warning that if they are not willing to change their behavior "they will have a problem." "We are here for Catalonia, not for you or for the kingdom," stated Nogueras.

Thus, he stressed that the socialists must be clear that "things will not go back to the way they have been until now", in reference to the previous legislature because in this Junts it is decisive and will only support policies that benefit Catalonia.

"Spanish policies in recent years have been made with their backs turned to Catalonia. They are policies defended by the PSOE and the PSC, Comuns, and Sumar and they are killing our country. And we are surprised by the silence and agreement of some," he slipped , in a clear message to ERC. "Catalonia is not stronger with its proposals. If they want Junts' votes, Catalonia has to win," Nogueras stressed.

Furthermore, he took advantage of his intervention to outline the "modest and reasonable" demands that, according to what he said, his training has made, and to denounce the "traps" that, in his opinion, the Government's decrees hide, such as a compensation of 100 millions of euros to the electricity companies.

For example, it has demanded a reform of the Capital Companies Law to provide tax incentives for companies based in Catalonia. Nogueras has recalled the flight of Catalan companies after the independence referendum of October 2017, "few" in his opinion, and has criticized the decree of the Government of Mariano Rajoy that allowed the procedures to be simplified to change the tax domicile of a company, so that could be approved without the approval of the shareholders' meeting.

In his opinion, this measure was approved "in bad faith" and now is the time to reverse the situation. To this end, he has asked to "reinforce" articles 9 and 10 of the Capital Companies Law to reverse the business situation that the autonomous community experienced in 2017 with the independence process.


That article 9, in its first point, states that capital companies will establish their domicile within Spanish territory in the place where "the center of their effective administration and management is located, or where their main establishment or operation is located." .

In a second point, the rule states that companies whose main establishment or operation is located within Spanish territory must have their domicile in Spain, without distinguishing by communities or municipalities, given the principle of national market unity.

For its part, article 10 talks about the discrepancy between the registered address and the real one, but only to say that if said discrepancy exists, either of the two may be considered the company's address.

"We must guarantee that the law is complied with. Those Catalan companies that comply with the law must be able to have tax incentives, because it is time for funds to be dedicated to small and medium-sized Catalan companies," Nogueras stressed.


The spokesperson has also demanded that the "singularities" of Catalonia in terms of financing be taken into account and that there be no attempt to return to the "coffee for all" model and that the presence of the Catalan employers' association be guaranteed in the making of decisions that affect to businesses in your community.

Likewise, he has demanded that the transport aid included in the anti-crisis decree be assumed "entirely" by the State. "It is not Catalonia who has to pay for it, but rather the Spanish State has to assume it in its entirety," he stressed, complaining that the State has not yet subsidized Catalonia's part of the transport aid corresponding to 2023.

"We are not asking for this to poke fun, we are asking for it because it is what corresponds to Catalonia, which represents more than 16% and has its own powers that other communities do not have. This uniqueness is not taken into account in the distributions and they cannot tell us that we let lose 10,000 million euros because this is their responsibility," Nogueras replied to the Minister of the Presidency and Justice, Félix Bolaños.

At this point he highlighted that "20,000 million are taken from Catalonia every year" without the Government "caring at all." "If you do not count on Catalonia to make decisions that affect Catalonia, you cannot think that you have the votes of Junts. Respect and pay what corresponds to Catalonia and you will have our votes," summarized Nogueras.
