The Valencian Community and Castilla-La Mancha have highlighted on Monday the need for the new government led by the socialist Pedro Sanchez reform the regional funding system to be able to lend and promote social policies in their autonomies.
This has been explained by the Vice President of the Generalitat, Monica Oltra, and the second vice president of Castilla-La Mancha, José García Molina, after holding a meeting in which they have addressed precisely the social policies implemented in both territories.
Oltra has pointed out that with the change in Moncloa “expectations are emerging that the management of the communities could also improve” with the change in financing. He stressed that most of the rights of citizens in their daily lives are provided by communities and “it is already time to understand that the financing of communities as a whole has to improve”, especially for those under-financed, such as Valencian, which is “in the caboose”.
For his part, Garcia Molina has stressed that they need “a new regional funding much fairer” and this is one of the issues that will have to pose to the new government, “since the previous one seems to have it in the freezer.” “If there is no better financing of autonomy, maintaining those social and income rights and policies, which are essential, will be more complicated,” he added.
Both leaders have pronounced on the consequences of the relay in the central government, which Oltra considers “opens the expectations” so that “rescuing people, participation, democracy, good governance or transparency” are at the center of the policies .
“PRIDE FOR THE VALENCIANOS”
For Oltra it is a pride that in his speech at the Congress Pedro Sánchez put the Acord of the Botanic as “an example of policies, of functioning, of miscegenation and as an example of having put collective intelligence at the service of people in a common service project. “
“That we are an example to export is a pride for Valencians, especially when in the time of the PP what were exported were holders linked to corruption, and unfortunately today also, another former Valencian president of the PP has given another head of corruption in relation to the Erial case, “he said.
Therefore, it is “good” that now the Consell is set as an example against “export corruption, bad government, cuts to citizenship, suffering of people who live here while others filled their pockets.”
Asked about the demands that will be transferred to the central government, it has indicated that they are preparing a list of the priorities of each council, some known because they have been raised since 2015 and others “that are emerging over time.” Financing and investments will be there, something “fundamental”, and there are sectoral issues such as the financing of dependence on the part of the State, which according to what is said is 18% of the cost, “12% in the Comunitat”, when “You must contribute 50%”.
“A DIFFERENT POLITICAL TIME”
José García Molina has indicated that this is “a different political time in which absolute majorities seem to have passed to a better life” and that “we must celebrate that the politics of the roller has given way to a negotiation policy”.
Although he understands that “this change in mentality still costs”, he stressed that “the agreement, the negotiation, will be the general tone”. He has given as an example his government, in which PSOE and Podemos agree on some measures, according to nuances in others and others in which there is no agreement and it is “a government with two souls” that prioritizes working in measures in which there is agreement or can negotiate and leave in the second step those who know that it is very difficult to reach a consensus.
He stressed that both in the Region of Valencia and Castilla-La Mancha has generated “a framework of stability and guarantees” and in the central government “is not only possible, but also, is desirable.”
“If we really want to give stability and we do not think only of a party logic,” this stable government is possible, “a diverse government, of people who demonstrate that they know how to dialogue, cooperate and go to a stabilization program for a country that needs it. “
