Ten days after the government crisis that turned Raquel Sánchez into the new Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda just remains and a trace of his predecessor in office. In the last hours Sánchez has carried out a series of changes that suppose the renewal of the key positions of the Ministry and who erase most of the legacy of José Luis Ábalos stage.
And that the Ábalos himself was in charge of highlighting and highlighting his achievements during the cold transfer of portfolios that occurred between them. "When we arrived we find an infracted ministry and an ancient culture, there were structural problems, now you have unlocked many situations and especially the European plan to distribute the first funds. It is a different scenario," said the outgoing minister.
But no matter how much that Ábalos pointed out the way, the new minister wants to leave behind the shadows that have surrounded Al already former minister during these years - the controversy by the Delcygate or the Plus Ultra case, among others - and mark its imprint from the beginning . An imprint that will pivot on two main pillars: housing and feminist vision management.
With regard to housing, Raquel Sánchez has not communicated so far any significant change and the team that negotiated with UNIDA can the future housing law continues to work to try an agreement.
In the other aspect, the most significant movement has been to name Isabel Pardo de Vera - now president of Adif- as a new Secretary of State of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda in substitution of Pedro Saura. Pardo de Vera will be the number two of transport and the appointment of it is also interpreted as a commitment to a professional management profile with a broad trajectory and experience in the sector.
Barde de Vera is part of ADIF since 2007, although until June 2018 it was not named president of the railway infrastructure administrator. It is expected that in the next few hours you know the name of the person who will take over her at the institution.
Pedro Saura, for his part, he puts direction to the presidency of Paradores, a position that until now had occupied Óscar López, the new chief of cabinet of the president of the government. Saura has been one of the scudmers of Ábalos during his years in the ministry and combined a technical profile and wide professional career with his political journey within the game, and perhaps the Government has assigned him as a new destination one of the most posts Desired at the institutional level. The challenge of Saura en Paradores will be a new impetus to the institution after the decline that has meant the fall in income by the Covid.
The last great change that has been known in the last hours has to do with Koldo García, whom Raquel Sánchez has ceased as Renfe's counselor merchandise, according to the confidential one Wednesday. García, in addition to a counselor, was mostly personal friend of José Luis Ábalos and the arrival of him to the railway company was always surrounded by controversy, something that will surely be heavy in the decision of the minister.
It is believed that Koldo García had a fundamental role in the Delcygate being the person who moved Ábalos to the Barajas airport (Madrid) in the controversial flight of the Venezuelan vice president. But it has not been the only scandal with which it has been linked to García, since he was also in question about the appointment of him as a secretary assistant at the ministry or his discussion with the mayor of León.Date Of Update: 25 July 2021, 06:23
