Andalusia rejects a “debt cancellation” as a “favorable treatment” to Catalonia

More reactions for a possible cancellation of the debt for Catalonia. The Minister of Employment of the Junta de Andalucía, Rocío Blanco, has come forward this Wednesday and has said that they are against the possibility of authorizing and giving the green light to a “debt cancellation” to Catalonia as a “favorable treatment” to the Generalitat in the framework of the negotiations for the investiture of the next president of the Government and the reform of the regional financing system, on which he has insisted on warning that Andalusia is “underfinanced”.

This has been indicated by the Minister of Employment in statements to Canal Sur Radio collected by Europa Press, in which she has stressed that “Spain is an autonomous State” where “we are all equal before the law”, and in this line has asserted that ” the citizens of Andalusia cannot be treated in a worse condition than a person who lives in Catalonia”.

“We all have to have equal consideration”, emphasized Rocío Blanco, who has remarked that Andalusia is underfinanced”, as, according to what has abounded, the now acting Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, recognized when she was an Andalusian director of the branch and ” He spoke of 800 million less a year” that the autonomous community received with respect to what corresponded to it, an amount that “requested from the Government of Spain”.

“It seems to us that we must be against a debt cancellation” to Catalonia “when Andalusia also has a debt with the Government of Spain”, said the Minister of Employment before adding that from the Junta “we have to defend the interests of the Andalusians, and we cannot have a different environment and play in another league”, because the possible forgiveness of debt would be “a favorable treatment that in a rule of law like the one we have in Spain should not be consented to”, he opined.

special employment plan

On the other hand, the counselor has referred to the special employment plan for Andalusia approved last July in the Council of Ministers, endowed with 50 million euros, of which she has remarked that there is a term “until 2024 to execute it”. The Andalusian head of Employment has stressed that “the plan is being approved on the same dates that it was approved in another year, what happens is that in another year there was no electoral campaign in the middle”, and in this one “used” the plan in that context, as he regretted.

Along these lines, and in line with statements by the Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, critical of the execution of employment policies by the Board, the counselor has said that she is “sorry that information is used that one has as a member of the Government of Spain to attack an autonomous community during an electoral period”. The counselor has remarked that “the employment plans that have been given to Andalusia, which are more than 50% lower per unemployed than those given to Extremadura and the Canary Islands with respect to the number of unemployed, have been executed on time And form”.

In addition, it has pointed out that “in other times, employment plans were made that did not have any projection, that did not imply an increase in contributions, or affiliation, nor did they follow the hiring of the workers to whom it was addressed”, and by the Board “now we do a directed contracting, with these employment plans, an indefinite contracting”. The counselor concluded by emphasizing that the Junta “will always use public money with due care, and above all aimed at those who have to be transferred, the workers and companies in Andalusia”, she concluded.
