Montero begins the reform of financing with a victory for Valencia and the dissatisfaction of the rest

The Valencian Government can finally sing "Victoria" with autonomic financing. First, because the Ministry of Finance has activated the reform of the model by sending its proposal to the Autonomous Communities, something that the Hacienda Conselleria had been claiming for years. And second, because the Valencian claim passed through a basic requirement: that Mary Jesús Montero document pivoted around the adjusted population criterion.

And so it has been, as the Conseller Vicent Solar stood out, which valued "very positively" the Ministry Document: "For the first time since the financing system was created in 2002, there is a proposal of criteria for distribution based on The adjusted population, and especially based on demographic variables, which will allow us to end the current discrimination suffered by Valencians. " In the opinion of Soler, which recently went on the street to protest the blockade of funding - together with the rest of the parties, employers and unions -, the new approach of Finance "prevents the impending expenditure needs to be distorted and increases the weight of Variables such as sanitary, educational or social services ".

In fact, the thesis of the Valencian Community has always been that the point of departure should be to pay public services based on the amount of population to which it is necessary to attend, regardless of other criteria that esgrime the Spain emptied . And this scenario is that he was no longer fulfilled with the current model, according to the Generalitat and corroborate the figures of Feda.

The last settlement of the system in 2019 left the Valencian Community as the worst region of Spain, with 2,618 euros per inhabitant, compared to the 3,321 of Cantabria. Hence, the Valencian PP has lamented that, however, the so-called historical debt is not output, that is, to the accumulated during all these years of infrafinancing of the Valencian Community with an expired model since 2014.

In this way, the initial document to begin the reform of autonomic financing - whose model has been expiration for seven years - approaches the Valencian Community, but in which the region of Murcia and Andalusia are also.

It was the most liked model in the hacienda, as this newspaper already published, although from the ministry itself they try to evidence that it also approaches some of the criteria that the eight communities representing Empty Spain. "The proposal sent by the Executive contemplates corrective variables that takes into account the highest cost that implies the depopulation or insularity in addition to incorporates more robust, detailed and realistic indicators to set the distribution of sanitary, educational and social services." Aim.

In addition, in Hacienda they emphasize that it is an initial text, which communities should study and complete with their proposals, and add that the objective is that all regions come benefited, which is why they insist that the G-8 of Spain depopulated. And is that in the Department who run Montero are totally knowledgeable that the agreement between all the communities will be complex, and therefore they strive to move that no region will lose with the agreement and that it is necessary "a serious debate, in which it is I rate if the new model is just or not ".

But the beginning, beyond what was pointed out by Valencia, does not seem to be the best. Because the Region of Murcia, which in principle agreed with the Valencian model, has already stated that the Government of Pedro Sánchez will send the reform of the autonomic financing system for "fascicles" to "hide a new abuse", at the time that the "urgent call of the Fiscal and Financial Policy Council" required.

Andalusia, which is also in that group, considers that the proposal is "forward" and criticism that does not collect the compensatory transitional fund to avoid inequalities between the regions. To Cantabria, which is part of the G-8, the model "sounds badly". And Catalonia, which together with Madrid are the interested parties on which no adjusted population criterion is applied, has already advanced that it will not correct the "infrafinancing and the fiscal deficit" that suffers, reports Europa Press.
