The PSOE avoids positioning in water and autonomic financing

The PSOE reached its 40 Federal Congress in Valencia with the threat of the confrontation between barons and territories for autonomic financing or water policy blinking the anxietyed unit image. And, finally, the blood has not reached the river, but the war ax is far from buried. The party has only managed to agree a momentary truce with minimum approaches that each federation has rushed to sell as an own victory.

The PSOE avoided yesterday in the discussion of amendment to the framework setting a clear posture on the crux of the matter: what should be the criterion that prime when reforming the current financing model, expired since 2014. That is, if The State must distribute the money between the communities according to the adjusted population (as they defend Valencian Community or Andalusia) or at all over all the dispersion of the population and its aging (the thesis of Spain emptied).

Two opposite approaches that have already caused the alignment of the autonomous barons on the side of acronyms. On the one hand, the led by the Valencian Ximo Puig, and from another, the headed by Galician Alberto Núñez Feijóo. It was precisely the Valencian Federation of Puig who intended to open the debate in this Congress to make clear that the criterion should be that of the "adjusted population", a concept that fell from the consensual text to be replaced by that of "citizenship". Valencian sources consulted underlined that it is perfectly an acceptable synonym.

Specifically, the approved document advocates "a funding system focused on citizenship and taking into account the real cost of providing services". Although the "infrafinance" of some territories is recognized, the text ignores - in an authentic balance of equilibria - what must determine the distribution of funds beyond complying with "sufficiency", "inter-treatment solidarity" or " equity".

The Andalusian PSOE leader, Juan swords, will be the one who has to go down to the mud now that he is at the forefront of the Federal Political Board. Because the pricing issue does not appear in the text. Of course, the commitment is to achieve a political agreement "as soon as possible".

The same happens with the so-called Water War that peeked on the horizon of the amendment to the presentation that, by the way, already omitted entry the term of discord: Transvase. So Murcia and Valencia intended to place the PSOE in the seamless defense of the "maintenance of the Tajo-Segura transfer", something that has not been accepted. Nor does the opposite pretension of Albacete from shielding the "priority of use of the cedent basin".

The Solomonic solution goes by "taking advantage of all existing resources to guarantee the necessary water for human consumption, agriculture and other productive sectors." While the pro-transfer emphasized that among the existing resources is obviously the infrastructure of the controversy, the anti-transfer spoke that the important thing is that its armor is avoided in the wording.

One of the hot spots of the Federal Congress was the feminist debate around Trans and prostitution. The classic feminists of the PSOE rejected gender self-determination. His amendments in this sense were not accepted and the Socialists endorse himself "the claims of TRANS with this future legislation that addresses the free manifestation of the sexual identity itself and supports the registration of declared sex".

The party wanted to compensate for this defeat of its classical feminists, whose maximum visible head is Carmen Calvo, eliminating the use of "gender" to re-employ "sex".

In addition, the PSOE undertakes to promote a law on what remains of legislature to abolish prostitution, within a regulatory framework that sanctions those who go to prostitution and who profit from it.

The PSOE assumes the commitment to launch this law so that it can be approved in the Government, despite the fact that it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Equality of Irene Montero.

Within the framework of the discussion of the master lines for the coming years, an amendment that strengthens the federal commitment, vindicating the validity of the Granada Declaration, entitled "Towards a federal structure of the State" was accepted.
