MADRID, 17 Dic. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The PP has requested the holding of a monographic debate in the Plenary of Congress on the new European fiscal rules and thus clarify, among other issues, whether concessions have been made to promote Nadia Calviño as the new president of the European Investment Bank (EIB). .
Specifically, the 'popular' have registered a non-legal proposal to demand the appearance of the economic vice president of the Government in order to explain what has been the position of Spain and the rest of the countries in the meetings of December 7 and 8 in the Economic and Financial Affairs Council of the European Union (Ecofin).
In the opinion of the PP, the information available about the Spanish position "is that which results from the media and some message that has transcended from Vice President Calviño." Of these messages, what the 'popular' ones stand out the most is the reduction of the debt by one percentage point for countries whose debt exceeds 90% and 0.5 points when it is between 60-90%, in compliance with German demands .
The Popular Group is concerned that the agreement for fiscal rules includes concessions to the orthodoxy that Germany demands. Conditions that could be supported by future governments "making their management very difficult and allowing the current government to barely establish commitments."
In addition, the PP also wants to know if Spain has made any commitment to Germany to receive its support in the candidacy of Nadia Calviño as president of the EIB. "We must know what commitments have been made to receive support, if any," explains the group.
With this panorama, the formation led by Alberto Núñez Feijóo promotes the appearance of Calviño so that the political parties establish positions before assuming a commitment "that entails obligations for all Spaniards and, above all, restrictions for future governments without "These obligations arise from debate and dialogue."
