MADRID, 27 Ene.

The PP says it is not seeking "complicity" with Page in regional financing, but rather to benefit all communities


The coordinator of the economic area of ​​the PP, Juan Bravo, has assured that his training plans in the reform of the autonomous financing system do not involve seeking "complicity" with autonomous communities of the PSOE, such as Castilla-La Mancha headed by Emiliano García Page, but to achieve a framework that benefits all the territories.

This week in Fitur, García Page agreed with the presidents of the Valencian Community, Carlos Mazón; the region of Murcia, Fernando López Miras, and Andalusia, Juanma Moreno, to ask the Government for a regional leveling fund in favor of underfinanced territories until a new system is approved.

In this framework, Bravo has said that the PP's intention is not to ally with Page or other socialist autonomous communities, but rather a financing system that does not harm some autonomies.

"It doesn't matter which political party governs them (the autonomous communities), it is a necessity for all Spaniards," defended the economic spokesperson for the PP in Congress in statements to 'Parliament', of RNE, collected by Europe Press.

Bravo's commitment involves a reform that is based on "multilaterality" in coordination with all the autonomous communities, so that both Castilla-La Mancha and Asturias, the Basque Country or Catalonia, among others, benefit.

But the economic coordinator of the PP believes that the Government, in reality, does not want to face this reform of the financing system, despite the fact that the first vice president and Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has already confirmed that starting in February they will meet with the autonomies to study the new system.

"He has been in the Government for five and a half years and has not at any time attempted to modify the financing system," Bravo commented. In her opinion, the Minister of Finance does not want to change the financing, but rather "pay the political price to remain in the Government."

In line with this, Juan Bravo has criticized that the Government wants to assume part of the debt subscribed to the Autonomous Liquidity Fund (FLA) without talking about financing, something that, in his opinion, "does not solve anything."

"The really important thing is to sit down and talk about financing," about what matters to people, which is health, education, and from there being able to provide the autonomous communities with the necessary financing," he stressed. .
