The general policy debate in the Courts: between post-covid recovery and under-financing

After a year and a half of the irruption of the pandemic that has changed everything, the head of the Consell will focus his speech on the exit from the health, economic and social crisis propelled by the manna of the European funds with which he is trying to cement the recovery strategy, transforming the production model, generating employment, strengthening the welfare state and emphasizing the importance of sustainability and the fight against climate change. The wind, a priori, blows in your favor when it comes to health data. The favorable result of this X-ray will allow that same morning, before the debate on the state of the Community, a meeting of the health interdepartmental will be held in which important steps will be taken to recover part of the old normality, to relax the restrictions and reactivate the productive sector. It will be precisely in the framework of the debate where Puig will take his chest out of his administration. The demand for a fair financing model will also focus a good part of his argument, with his sights set on the triple demonstration convened on November 20 and on the proposed reform of the distribution of funds that, it is assumed, will be presented by the central government.

The main opposition party, the PP, comes to the debate with a new trustee, María José Catalá, who is called to be the voice of the party’s president, Carlos Mazón, in the Cortes. Training ensures that faces the general policy debate with a marked proactive nature focused on providing solutions to the groups that need it most after the crisis, with a special relevance for youth employment, agriculture or the urgency of strengthening health. His proposal for a generalized tax reduction will be another claim. Water and tourism will also be two of the bets to defend the interests of the province. A fiery defense of the transfer to Segura and investments will be requested for the modernization of irrigation in the Júcar, or the consideration of the Júcar-Vinalopó transfer as an infrastructure of strategic importance. The frontal rejection of the tourist tax and presenting a resolution on regional financing also underpin its line of attack.

Also Ruth Merino, Cs trustee, will be at the forefront of a debate for the first time in which she will reproach Puig your “mistakes” in anticipation and prevention of the pandemic, with restrictions that, he considers, have excessively limited freedoms. He will ask for a reinforcement of health, will focus on the sectors severely affected by the restrictions, will ask to work on a solid recovery strategy for tourism and nightlife, and will demand a reduction in personal income tax and the elimination of the Inheritance and Donation Tax. From the Vox group, Ana Vega will emphasize the right of parents to choose the education they want for their children, on the “abandonment and lack of investment in health”, in the defense of the Tajo-Segura transfer or in immigration.

From the opposing bench, Manolo Mata, trustee of the PSPV, will highlight the resistance and effort of the citizens and the work of the public powers that, he defends, have guaranteed that no one is left behind, and will bet on designing a more sustainable future, with a new culture of work and social protection, in which European injections contribute to tackling the climate emergency. The demand for fair financing will also be very present in his speech.

Fran Ferri, from Compromís, will defend the Botànic as a co-government formula that guarantees courageous measures to improve the lives of citizens, and will emphasize the urgency of facing the climatic and social emergency with an ecological transition that they consider an opportunity to generate employment and, especially, in the need to raise the tone due to the discrimination of successive central governments for under-financing.

The spokesperson for Unides Podem, Pilar Lima, is another of those who makes her debut in the most important debate of the year. It will defend an economic reconstruction in the Country Valencià that must be inclusive, leaving no one behind, placing equality and the reduction of socioeconomic inequalities at the center and putting the accent on youth, both in labor issues and those related to mental health, as well as in the right of access to housing . Autonomous financing will form, as it could not be otherwise, part of their demands, and will be supported by Yolanda Díaz’s strong position in favor of this issue.
