Bildu agrees with the Government that the Basque Country collects taxes on banks and energy companies


Bildu has reached an agreement with the Government so that by the end of 2024, when the validity of the new taxes on energy companies and banksan evaluation of their application is made and the possibility of making them permanent is studied, as well as for the Basque and Navarrese foral estates manage these new taxes.

This was announced by the economic spokesman for the nationalist coalition, Oskar Matute, who explained that, after this pact, his formation will vote in favor of the creation of these new taxes that are processed in Congress. He has also indicated that this agreement favors the negotiation that Bildu is keeping open with the Government regarding the General State Budget for 2023, but does not imply his support for them. In this context, both parties continue to talk about improving the accounts through social measures that favor the popular classes.

“If we want to guarantee a better redistribution of wealth in a State in which wealth accumulates in a few hands, it cannot be otherwise”

Regarding the Government’s decision to open up to assess whether or not to transform the new taxes on banks and energy companies into structural ones, Matute has been convinced that the future report will be in favor of making them permanent. “If we want to guarantee a better redistribution of wealth in a State in which wealth accumulates in a few hands and inequality does not stop growing, it cannot be otherwise”, he said.

In addition, he has welcomed the agreement to “shield” the powers of the Basque and Navarrese foral estates in the application of the new tax because, in his opinion, “results in the reinforcement of Basque self-government” and its “collection capacity”.

Specifically, always according to Matute’s version, both parties have sealed an explicit commitment so that these taxes are adapted to the competences and fiscal capacities recognized to the respective Provincial Treasuries as quickly as possible and always within three months from the entry into force of the law.
