Escrivá once again insists that “there will be an agreement” for the pension reform
The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations, José Luis Escrivá, has once again insisted this Saturday that “there will be an agreement” for the approval of the pension reform. In addition, the head of Social Security has defended that “it is not new” that the processing of this rule It will be carried out through a decree law.
“Yes, yes, there will be an agreement, don’t worry about that,” he told journalists about this issue from the Torrejón de Ardoz air base (Madrid), where he went to receive 89 Syrian refugees affected by the earthquake from Turkey.
Last Friday, before an act in Valladolid, Escrivá explained that the approval of the pension reform It will be processed through a decree law and will take place “imminently”and stressed that the extension of the retirement age “is not something that is on the table in the Social Dialogue or in the Toledo Pact.”
The Minister of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations is finalizing the technical details to close the measures pending pension reform with Brussels and he hopes to be able to complete the three-party negotiations within the Government itself, in Congress and in the Social Dialogue.
After months of intense work, the reform, which looking to improve revenue of the system with measures such as the uncapping of the maximum bases, faces its final stretch with increasingly tight deadlines in a year marked by the double electoral date.
“There will be an agreement before Easter,” he assured at the end of February in Brussels after meeting with the European Commissioner for the Economy, Paolo Gentiloni, and acknowledged that he was going “detail by detail” in a complex reform of “much depth” that wants to take to the Council of Ministers in the coming weeks.
