The Government paves the way for Budgets thanks to the support of ERC


The Government paves the way to approve the General State Budget for next year. This Thursday has concluded the second and last day of voting in the Commission of the PGE of the Congress, where PSOE and United We Can They have maintained the support of the PNV and CC (Mixed Group). The novelty is that this time ERC has also joined, which has approved all the titles and sections of the Law.

The PSOE and Unidas Podemos were two votes away from an absolute majority in the Budget Committee and that bonus has been provided by the PNV and the Canary Islands Coalition, which represents the vote of the entire Mixed Group. With this, they already surpassed all the votes on Wednesday against the PP and Ciudadanos and Vox, a formation that has not participated in all the votes.

This Thursday the Government has also added the support of ERC in the partial votes, although in the final report of the presentation it has abstained. According to sources from the Republican formation assure Europa Press, in the last few hours they have been “closing things”, although they have not yet given the definitive yes.

on your side, EH Bildu and Junts They have chosen to abstain during the entire vote, reserving the final vote for next week, once the final result of their bilateral negotiations is known. Along these lines, the Basques have indicated in a statement, published almost at the end of the Commission, that their five votes for the PGE “not yet guaranteed”after the group has reached an agreement with the Government so that the provincial estates manage the taxes on banking and electricity and steps are taken to make them permanent.

All of this largely paves the way for next week’s plenary voting, where the government will need to secure more votes in favor than against because a single defeat in the accounts of a single ministry it implies the demolition of the entire budget project. As in the first day of voting, the Commission has approved all the compromise amendments agreed between the Executive and the different groups.

Some transactions that, by the way, have been the reason for a break of several minutes. And it is that the deputy of Citizens, Maria Muñoz, has protested not having the documents referring to these amendments and having had to voter “by intuition” in some cases. For her part, Montse Mínguez, of the PSOE, has argued that the groups did have these copies, since they were delivered yesterday afternoon. Once the debate resumed, the groups have clarified that everyone already had access to these amendments, which has allowed it to continue normally.

More investment for Teruel and the Canary Islands

Although all the compromise amendments agreed with the Canarian Coalition have gone ahead, Unidas Podemos has voted against one, understanding that it withdrew funding from primary and community care. To avoid shocks in the voting, the Government has been announcing several agreements over the last few weeks with the Canary Islands Coalition, the PNV, Más País, Compromís or the PRC.

The first of them was with the PNV, with whom PSOE and Podemos agreed to carry out 48 amendments in a presentation involving investments worth 70 million in the Basque Country. Among these, the 25 million earmarked for a program to promote the development of the Guggenheim or the 10 million to improve the EDAR Loiola treatment plant in Gipuzkoa stand out.
