Feijóo opens to return to ‘fracking’. The leader of the PP assures that in Spain there are “reserves that can be studied for the purpose of their exploitation” through this technique, expressly prohibited in the climate change law. “The objective of the Government is to be the greenest in Europe,” Feijóo despised, justifying that in a context of war it is “common sense” to make “a halt in the energy transition calendar.”
Genoa has been repeating for weeks that “all” the energy sources available to Spain must be activated and promoted, but until this Monday its president had not clearly referred to hydraulic fracturing or ‘fracking’, a technique prohibited due to serious environmental impact. Asked during an interview on the show Herrera in CopeFeijóo said that “a more serious debate” would have to be held to study this possibility.
Aware that the Climate Change Law vetoes the fracking‘, the leader of the PP assured that if he arrives at Moncloa he will make the necessary “adjustments”. “If I propose to objectify energy, those things that go against those principles cannot be part of the current legislation,” he said. In addition, the popular want to create an independent body similar to the Airef (Independent Authority for Fiscal Responsibility) to be in charge of studying “all the possibilities” of Spain in terms of energy.
The creation of this body is one of the measures that the PP will present this Monday within its energy plan. They also propose direct discounts on the bill to those who save from 3.5% and the cap on the price of renewable, nuclear and hydraulic energy for the duration of the crisis.
It will repeal the laws of abortion, education and democratic memory
The leader of the PP promised that, if he were president of the Government, he would repeal the law of democratic memory, education and abortion. Feijóo insisted on Monday that it is not “reasonable” for a “girl” under 18 to carry out a voluntary termination of pregnancy without the consent of her parents. Something he called “nonsense.” His proposal is that in the event that the parents do not give their authorization to the minor to abort, they go to a family court that decides as an arbitrator.
