OE2022: PS insists on continuing negotiations in the specialty with balance and common sense – State Budget

The assistant secretary general of the PS insisted today on the continuation of negotiations on the State Budget for 2022 (OE2022) in the specialty, considering that there is still availability to discuss changes proposed by the partners, but with “balance and common sense”.

“The PS and the Government have for a long time, and already with proven evidence, made an effort to meet proposals for improvement and improvement of the State Budget, which will now have an appropriate time for discussion in the specialty. First it has to be approved in general and then we enter a new phase”, said José Luís Carneiro, at the end of an audience with the President of the Republic on the budget, at the Belém Palace, in Lisbon.

The socialist leader referred the process more than once to the specialty phase, which implies the approval of the proposal in general, while answering the questions posed by journalists.

José Luís Carneiro reinforced the PS’s intention to “appreciate the proposals” of the partners, but with the purpose of “finding the points of balance and common sense so that it deserves the support of the political parties” that have supported the PS in parliament.

However, he defended that “whenever advancing, new matters arise”, arguing that this does not impede the negotiation, taking into account “the principle of balance of public accounts and the guarantee that the country is able to reduce its public debt”.

Flanked by the socialist parliamentary leader, Ana Catarina Mendes, and the deputy national secretary, Pedro Cegonho, the assistant secretary general added that there has always been “a very significant opening” aligned with the country’s interests, and that there is availability, beyond the State Budget, dialogue “with the political parties that have politically supported the Government in matters that are crucial.”

Among these issues, he underlined, is the discussion “on the status of the National Health Service (SNS)”.
