SPAIN: The Government redoubles the pressure on the PSOE to approve the Budget – EntornoInteligente

the Five Days / The Government does not desist in its attempt to approve the General State Budget of the current year. So what has defended the Government’s spokesperson, Íñigo Méndez de Vigo in the press conference after the Council of Ministers. “It is not coherent to approve the spending ceiling and not to approve the Budgets,” he said in reference to the PSOE.

although rejected to threaten the electoral process in the event of not obtaining the approval of the accounts, Mendez de Vigo warned that having no Budget is negative for “all”, to the “citizens” and the “autonomous communities”.

The Council of Ministers has carried out an assessment of the first 100 days of mandate of Mariano Rajoy is to meet this Friday. Méndez de Vigo proclaimed that in this period of time the country has managed to pass “a climate of tension, uncertainty and instability” to another very different from “certainty and political stability.” So said the minister of Education and spokesperson of the Government, Iñigo Méndez de Vigo, during the press conference after the Council of Ministers, in which he emphasized that the management of Rajoy at the front of The Moncloa, has been allowed to turn around the economic situation, with three years of consecutive growth and the creation of more than a million jobs in the last two years.

he Pointed out that the Government of Rajoy is now facing a mandate “very different” to that which began in December 2011 after winning the first general elections in the midst of the economic crisis and congratulated the Spanish society because “they never threw in the towel” in the worst of times and were able to pass the necessary reforms to reverse the trend. Méndez de Vigo pointed out that the priority in this legislature, without an absolute majority of the PP, is the “political dialogue” to agree on reforms with the opposition and made a call to the rest of the matches to be understood because it is “a demand of the citizens” in view of the result of the general elections of the 20 of December 2015 and 26 June 2016.

The Council of Ministers also approved the election of three commissions of experts to discuss the reform of regional finances , local finance, and dependency. Méndez de Vigo regretted that Catalonia would not have proposed any academic to discuss the autonomous model.
