The vice president of the Generalitat and Minister of Equality and Inclusive Policies, Mónica Oltra, has stated that she hopes that the Government “complies with the law” in the General State Budget project and adjusts the investments for the Valencian Community to the population weight, as established the Statute of Autonomy.
According to Oltra, the amount of investments that must be allocated to the Valencian territory “is not a claim, it is a legal mandate.” “The Statute of Autonomy of the Valencian Community is an organic law approved by the Cortes Generales, and it says that investments must be in accordance with the population’s weight.”
“Therefore, it is not a claim, it is pure and hard compliance with an organic law, not any ordinary law, it is an organic law of the Kingdom of Spain that must be complied with,” said the spokesperson for the Consell during the conference. press after the plenary session of the Valencian government.
Asked about the 4.1% more financing that the Valencian Government expects to receive in 2021 based on what was announced after the Council for Fiscal and Financial Policy (CPFF), Oltra stated: “As a councilor, I will always say that it is insufficient. at some point we will come to equate ourselves with the state average, also in social services, as we have done in education and health “.
