Moncloa will have to explain if Blanco’s consulting firm influences the distribution of EU funds

Accent, the consultant founded by José Blanco, became news last October when its director general, the socialist exporter Antonio Hernando, joined Pedro Sánchez’s cabinet in Moncloa. Now, the Government will have to explain its links with this company, which at the end of 2020 began to offer itself as a mediator of large companies for the management of European funds.

Already in his day, when the signing of Hernando was announced, from Accent they claimed their “maximum independence” from the Government, aware of the suspicions that this incorporation could provoke. However, now the Executive will have to answer two questions in writing on this matter.

The two issues, to which you have had access Vozpópuli, were presented on January 2 by Pablo Cambronero, belonging to the Mixed Group of the Congress of Deputies after his departure from Citizens.

In the explanatory memorandum, the deputy recalls that the consulting firm Acento, created by former minister José Blanco and the Deputy Director of the Cabinet of the Presidency of the Government Antonio Hernando, has among its ranks a multitude of former socialist leaders and other political parties.

It also adds that “according to various publications this Consultant is advising the Government on matters of such relevance as the distribution of European fundss “, so” it would be interesting to know what will be the system or strategy that the Government is going to establish for the distribution of these funds. “

Cambronero emphasizes that today it is not known how this distribution will be, nor who will be the recipients of these funds, in what he considers “a total and absolute lack of transparency“For all these reasons, he asks the Government what connection it has with the Acento Consultant.

In a second question, the deputy of the Mixed Group wants to know if the government is going to publish how the European funds will be used that are already being received. See, below, the brief presented by Pablo Cambronero:
