The PP offensive to denounce the distribution of European funds will reach the very heart of the European Union. A delegation of mayors and presidents of Diputación will travel next Wednesday to Brussels to expose their complaints to the European Commission and other Community institutions by the manner in which the Government is distributing the money between the autonomies and the municipalities.
The message with which they come to is that the autonomous and local administrations governed by the PP are suffering from "discrimination" in the aid access and that there is a "partisan distribution" that "benefits" the institutions governed by the PSOE.
The General Secretary of the PP, Teodoro García Aegea summed up yesterday that denunciation in this way: "Today in Spain people have to know that European funds are being asked with the PSOE card, not with the DNI. We want you to access European funds, people have to present the DNI, not the PSOE card ».
The delegation of the PP will be composed of a dozen mayors, among which the Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida stand out; that of Zaragoza, Jorge Azcón; that of Córdoba, José María Bellido, and that of Estepona (Málaga), José María García Urbano. Likewise, a handful of presidents of Provincial Council, given that the upcoming European funds that are going to be distributed have to do with the problem of depopulation.
The plans that this PP delegation has is to maintain three meetings in Brussels. One with the European Commission, another with the European Parliament and, the latter, with the Committee of the Regions, that is, that they will address the issue of European Funds with the highest Community Organizations, according to popular sources.
In these meetings, the mayors will move the complaints and complaints that the party is making these days in Spain, after the team that has organized the PP to investigate each of the subsidies has detected that there are some games in which the recipient Final has been the PSOE with million-dollar amounts much higher than those who receive other administrations governed by the popular ones. Or that its partners have also come very benefited compared to the PP.
For example, and as this newspaper reported last Monday, there is a fund for 615 million tourist destinations that has been distributed by 46.84% for municipalities with socialist mayors, while popular municipalities have stayed in 20, fifty%. The rest, 31.7%, is for other parties, largely PSOE partners.
Similarly, this newspaper reported yesterday that autonomous governments in which the PSOE is monopolized 81% of inclusion funds, having run out of only two of the communities with more risk of poverty, such as Andalusia or Murcia.
In both cases, from the government it is refuted to the PP with the same argument: they have not presented projects to request subsidies and, therefore, it has not been possible to assign themselves money in those cases.
The Community of Madrid has already denounced a case before the Supreme Court and from Genoa, any legal action will be supported in that line. Go now to Brussels is one more step in that total offensive.Date Of Update: 04 February 2022, 14:44
