If the Tuesday is the opposition of the president of valencia community accused Puig of "using the media in their own service" and "spend money in an action for personal promotion" by the departure of 43,000 euros which supports be dedicated to "The Guardian" in 2017, yesterday unveiled the names of up to five leaders from the autonomous region, which would have allocated public money to the newspaper the british to be interviewed. Among the politicians whose interviews have been published in the british journal, as stated yesterday, the newspaper "The Economist", are the exalcaldesa Madrid Manuela Carmena; the president of the Balearic islands, Francina Armengol; the extremadura, Guillermo Fernández Vara; or the past presidents of the Canary islands to Fernando Clavijo and The Rioja José Ignacio Ceniceros.
All of them support the fact of having been interviewed in "The Guardian", but most denied having made any payment to . ABC contacted yesterday with Guillermo Fernández Vara, and this ensured that it was the british newspaper who asked for an interview and that from the regional Executive is granted: "It's as simple as that, we asked and we gave. No one asked us for anything more. And if you had done it, not we would have given," said Rod.
From Madrid, for their part, deny payment for any interview that has been granted by Manuela Carmena, although it does support the meeting of the mayor with the british newspaper, while the Government of the balearic islands issued a statement Thursday evening: "The Presidency of the Government wants to clarify that at no time, nor for the conclusion of the interview, or subsequently, agreed to any type of economic compensation, or advertising, neither on the part of the Government or any of its agencies instrumental".
on the other hand, the former president canario Fernando Clavijo said that "the interview was requested by an agency of content and that this had no cost to the canary islands Government". Don't know if any vendor would have paid for it and deny that any public company has come to agreements with that newspaper.
