Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez attended an event in Jaén and used the recent approval of a decree limiting gas prices to launch an election campaign for the Andalusian regional elections, in which Juan Espadas is seeking to be the new chairman of the board. Sanchez has estimated savings of 15 to 30% on electricity bills and is going the benefit of 30 million Spaniardswhile continuing through the official endorsement of the standard by the European Commission.
“That’s what the government is doing, advocate healthy politicsa policy that puts the common interest above all the noise and all the unrest that may arise in these difficult times when we live with a pandemic and war,” commented the President. In his speech, Sanchez asked “what really worries a citizen” and considered that the main thing for him is a stable job, a decent salary and a guaranteed pension.
But they also worry about the electricity bill. “That’s why we decided raise the price of gas because the Spanish government, when it had to choose, always preferred to protect families, companies and businesses from the statements of smart people, ”he said. it will benefit millions of Spaniards.
In this regard, Pedro Sanchez criticized the position of the right, advocating “unhealthy” policies,puts the interests of the party first and goes against the interests of citizens. “This is an unhealthy policy, a policy that the right always practices when they are in opposition, a policy that puts its party interests first and prevails over the interests of citizens“- commented Sanchez. During his speech, along with the Socialist candidate for the presidency of the Andalusian government, the president accused the Putin regime of try to weaken the European project coming to finance political parties that were betting “on a smaller Europe, on a weak Europe, and not on a big and strong Europe.”
“The enemies of Europe, brothers and sisters, are not in the Kremlin, they are also on our borders, they are also in Spain,” Sanchez remarked, stating that “what is a risk for Europe cannot be a solution for Andalusia.” In this line, Sanchez emphasized “The Importance and Relevance of Today’s Europe”, in addition to claiming the role of social democracy in the region. “Social democracy runs the economy much more efficiently, fairly and of course without corruption, this is what social democracy does in Europe and this is what we do here in Spain,” he said.
Similarly, the president remarked that “it’s not the same thing” to choose a government of the left or of the right. At this time the prime minister mentioned some achievements of the executivesuch as more than 20 million social security branches, the introduction of a minimum living income, an increase in the Interprofessional Minimum Wage (SMI) to 1,000, or linking the revaluation of pensions to the CPI. “This is not the same as the left ruling the right, because all this did not happen under the right government, nor during the pandemic, nor during the war, this is happening thanks to a progressive government led by the socialist party, despite the pandemic and despite the war” he added.
In four years, the government transferred 33% more resources than in the previous four years to Mariano Rajoy, and in the state budgets, the debt on transfers increased by 6.5%, which was done by the regional governments. Already anticipating the next Andalusian elections, Sánchez believes that there may be people who are “satisfied with what is, nothing has been done, neither good nor very bad”, but, as he warned, in a world that is changing dizzyingly, “to leave Andalusia at a standstill is to leave it behind“.
