Asens stresses that the UP does not like the rise in military spending but assumes that they are the minority partner before the PSOE

The leader tries to overcome the controversy and affirms that they are satisfied with the PGE despite the “dissonant note” in defense

MADRID, Oct. 6 (.) –

The president of the United We Can parliamentary group, Jaume Asens, has underlined that the increase in military spending is a commitment of the PSOE with NATO that they neither wanted nor shared, but they must also assume the “correlation of forces” in the Executive as it is the minority coalition partner.

In this way, he has pointed out that this increase in the defense item is the “dissonant note” within a “score that is very good” such as the General State Budgets for next year. And consequently, he has called for overcoming the controversy generated within the coalition by stressing that the confederal space is very satisfied with the new public accounts.

“It is true that it is (the rise in military spending) a commitment of the socialist part with NATO (…) It is evident that with a government alone of United We Can there would not have been that increase and that there would not be with a government alone of the PSOE such extensive Budgets with taxes on banks, electricity companies and large fortunes. Politics is this, correlation of forces and pacts and we must assume that in this correlation of forces because one does not always achieve what one wants “, has indicated the also leader of En Comú Podem in statements to TVE, collected by Europa Press.

THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDES STABILITY

After the controversy caused by the reproaches of disloyalty made by the parliamentary spokesman, Pablo Echenique, to the PSOE, Asens has shown a more conciliatory tone to overcome this controversy and claim that these new budgets confirm that the coalition government is “stable” and contributes “safety and certainty” to citizens in times of “emergency”, despite the fact that the opposition insists on “denying its legitimacy”.

Yesterday, Podemos maintained that the PSOE did not offer precise information and hid the increase figure from them during the budget negotiation, while the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Echenique, assured that they did know that data and thus contradicted Echenique.

Within the confederal space, they emphasize that an agreement was reached with the PSOE so that defense would remain outside the spending ceiling so that it would not compete with the rise in defense items, and that implied assuming and accepting that the PSOE had the letter of the special modernization plans to undertake this increase in investment. However, the purple formation criticized that they were not offered the specific data or provided the macroeconomic picture after the budget agreement.

In this line, the leader of the confederal group has confronted “expansionist” public accounts and with “social shield” against the times of the PP, where the budgets were synonymous with “evictions, layoffs and cuts” in public services.

CRITICISM OF MADRID FOR NOT INVESTIGATE DEATHS IN RESIDENCES

On the other hand, he has stated that the promotion of an investigation commission on deaths of the elderly in Madrid residences during the pandemic is a matter of “elementary transparency” and that alluding, as the regional vice president Enrique Ossorio did yesterday, to the fact that the families have overcome what happened is a “regrettable excuse” to reject it.

“The people of Madrid have the right to know the truth of what happened and if there were discriminatory criteria (in the referral to hospitals),” Asens settled.
