The Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, has shown this Friday its confidence that the autonomous communities respect the document of ‘new normality’ approved in the Interterritorial Council. “I hope they comply and if not, the Government will make them comply”, has pointed out in an interview on Cadena SER.
His statements come in the middle of the rebellion of the autonomous governments of Madrid, the Basque Country, Galicia, Castilla y León and Andalusia rose up this Thursday against the central Executive, and more specifically against the Ministry of Health.
In this line, the head of Health has recalled that the document is «Fruit of the previous work of 13 autonomous communities» and not a proposal that the government has “put on” the table as if it did on the San José bridge last March, reports EP.
«Not this one, this one was born from a previous work in which 13 communities participated. Whoever wanted to sign up and that’s why I raised it to the Council. A Council in which some autonomous communities asked to make nightlife more flexible by expanding from 2 to 3 in the morning. No one said to make another issue more flexible, “he explained.
Thus, Darias has explained that her department sign the order, which will be published in the Official State Gazette and, “from there”, it will study the “measures to consider”. In any case, the minister has insisted that it is not a “party struggle”, but “health measures” of mandatory compliance.
Asked if the Government has mechanisms to force the autonomies to abide by the document, Darias has indicated that they will be the “juridical services” those in charge of ruling it. In any case, he recalled that the Community of Madrid already warned that it would not comply with the agreement that restricted mobility at Easter and finally if it did.
Darias denies looking for “promotion”
In this context, Darias has responded to the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, after she accused him of search for “promotion” when “attacking” to autonomy. “I think that we already have a candidate in the Canary Islands and that is what she is in, in the promotion,” said the regional president.
«I have the president of the Canary Islands, the general secretary of the party and a candidate, who is Ángel Víctor Torres, but in any case he will allow me. This, to me, is not politics. I do not understand in politics or in life the disregard“Said Darias, who has made it clear that he is not going to” enter “into issues where” respect “is at stake.
However, the Minister of Health has indicated that she will always bet on “seeking dialogue and consensus” and has chosen to move towards a “Shared goal”, to lower the accumulated incidence. “We are going to improve the data and continue to fight the virus, which is the only enemy. Let’s work together to learn from the lessons of the past.
