If there is a situation that has no way out, solutions must be taken
The president of the Generalitat Valenciana and general secretary of PSPV-PSOE, Ximo Puig, believes that now “what matters least to Spain is more instability”, but he believes that “if in the future there is a situation in which there is no exit, you should take the appropriate solutions. “
This is what Puig said in an interview with Europa Press, when asked if the head of the central executive, Pedro Sanchez, should advance the general elections in Spain if there is a situation of ungovernability due to lack of support for the Government.
In this regard, he affirms that “in these moments what matters least to Spain is more instability”, after “many years with a situation of lack of legitimacy of government and problems of corruption”.
In his opinion, “now a new space has been opened” and there is “a majority that has supported a motion of censure” that must be “articulated in the minimum necessary to generate stability”. “This is what Spain is interested in,” he stresses.
However, he points out: “If in the future there is a situation in which there is no way out, the appropriate solutions must be taken, and now there is a new government willing to generate a shared agenda.”
“EVERYONE HAVE TO DO AN EFFORT”
He affirms that now the Executive has to present a budget that “portrays everyone” to make “a constructive policy”. “If Spain is not interested in having elections all have to make an effort to make the budget that nobody will like 100%, but this is the management of diversity,” he adds.
“What will happen if everything goes wrong?”, He asks, to say that he does not know, but that he is in favor of a “real policy and not fiction” or “political pop culture, but classical but permanent renewal ” In this sense, he adds: “The production of politics can not be in instantaneous times because it loses power and consistency.”
The head of the Consell emphasizes the “persistence and courage” of Sánchez who, in addition, “has shown that he is a politician with a background”. “The government has shown that it has the capacity to excite a majority of society and that is what the polls say, now we have to see exactly if it is capable of sustaining it and implementing those policies.”
IN SEPTEMBER “THE GOVERMENT MUST TIGHTEN THE ACCELERATOR”
In his opinion, it has created “a new atmosphere of dialogue that has released a lot of oxygen and can breathe”, but believes that now it is necessary to “land on concrete solutions to concrete problems and look at the medium and long term because you can not dribble in the short. ” As of September, it considers that it is “the moment in the government has to press the accelerator”.
Therefore, he insists that the new executive must be allowed to develop his work because “the alternative is worse” because “there is not”. “My assessment is very positive, although there are things that I would like to see faster than financing, but this is the first government in the history of democracy that not only has not had 100 days, it is that neither five days nor 100 hours and this is not very reasonable either. “
He recalled that Sanchez and advanced that “first was the motion of censure, then stabilization and then elections” and, therefore, believes that now should be “an effort” to “at least ensure stability a few months.”
In this way, he does not consider that “at this moment” there are “the circumstances” that Sánchez submits to a motion of confidence if the budgets do not go ahead. “At the moment these circumstances do not exist, all the instruments that the Constitution allows are there to be used, but they should always be from the general interest,” he says.
“VERY GOOD RELATIONSHIP AND COMMUNICATION” WITH MONCLOA
Regarding his relationship with the President of the Government, he points out that he is “open and affectionate” with a “permanently positive” tone, as well as maintaining “very good relationship and communication” with Moncloa and the different Ministries.
In fact, this September they will hold a formal meeting, still without a fixed date, from which they hope to obtain short-term agreements and “build a medium and long-term strategy”. “The Valencian Community wants to contribute to Spain and can do it, but for that it has to have the objective conditions such as financing and fair investments and take the slab out of the part of the underfinancing debt,” he emphasizes.
For Puig, with these “conditions” and a Mediterranean Corridor “in full form”, the Valencian autonomy can be “supportive” with the rest of the State’s territories because it will be able to “contribute more”. “We are going to be one of the locomotives of growth in Spain,” he predicts.
For this reason, will propose to Sanchez that the Community “is willing to participate and commit to a new project in Spain and a new territorial reality in which there are no privileges and, at the same time, the singularities are addressed but that there is equality among citizens” .
