A few hours after the General State Budgets for 2022 are voted, the Government of Pedro Sánchez has already cleared up the great unknown that was hovering over the Congress of Deputies: The Coalition Executive already has sufficient backing to pass the process in the Lower House, after it became known this Tuesday that the 13 ERC deputies will issue their support for the PGE. The votes of the Catalan Republicans have been the ‘icing’ for the public accounts to continue their processing in the Senate.
Right now the 120 deputies of the PSOE, the 34 of Unidos Podemos (it has 35, but the seat of Alberto Rodriguez has not yet been occupied), the 13 from ERC, 5 from EH Bildu, 4 from PDeCAT and 2 from Más País, added to the vote by party of Compromís, Teruel Existe, Nueva Canarias and Partido Regionalista de Cantabria, they unlock the Budgets with a majority of 182 votes. However, the Government has not been free to obtain favorable endorsements and during the negotiations agreements have been reached on the amendments with the groups that will vote ‘yes’. The key is now to know what each political formation has achieved in exchange for supporting the Budgets.
The 13 deputies of ERC are essential in the vote
The independence group has agreed on its amendments with the Government and will support public accounts. The main one is to equalize the conditions of retirement of the agents of the Mossos d’Esquadra Corps to those of the National Police and from the Ertzaintza from 60 years of age, or 59 years if at least 35 years of effective activity and quotation in the body. In addition, the training spokesperson in Parliament, Gabriel Rufián, has announced an agreement to introduce quotas and incentives for productions in co-official languages, 6% on each platform, within the future Audiovisual Law.
Bildu, in favor after the suspension of evictions
The independence formation announced this Monday its ‘approval’ of the General State Budgets (PGE) for 2022. According to the general coordinator of the party, Arnaldo Otegi, there have been “breakthroughs” in the negotiations and the five deputies in Parliament will support the public accounts. The sovereignist group obtains in exchange for its support that the suspension of evictions and the postponement of the payment of rent to vulnerable people are permanent, together with the commitment so that the ETB 3 channel, of children’s information, is seen in Navarre territory. In addition, the Government has agreed with Bildu to amend the General State Budgets for 2022 to lower the retirement age of its autonomous police to 59 or 60 years, an identical measure to the one it has agreed with ERC.
PDeCAT gives ‘green light’ to public accounts
The spokesman for the Catalan formation, Ferrán Bel, announced this Tuesday that an agreement has been reached with the Government in view of the vote next Thursday, according to which the Executive undertakes to open European funds to non-profit entities that provide social and health services that are not publicly owned.
Más País takes commitments from the Government in labor matters
The training led by Iñigo Errejón has confirmed yes to the PGE for 2022, after reaching agreements with Moncloa on labor matters and mental health. Thanks to the pact, the Government will allocate a first game of 10 million euros to the pilot project to reduce the weekly working day to four days without a drop in wages for the workers of those companies that voluntarily take advantage of it. The public accounts will also direct 5 million euros to increase psychologists and counselors in public secondary schools and to train teachers in the early detection of depression and homicidal behaviors.
The promise of improving financing for Compromís and Teruel Existe
The spokesperson in the Compromís Congress, Joan Baldoví, considers that the Government has “understood” the differences between the autonomies and agrees that the financing model that the Executive must present before the end of November is satisfactory for the Community Valencian. Baldoví It also announced that in the amendments agreed with Moncloa, 11 million will be allocated to improve the Cercanías networks in Levante, in addition to an item of 13 million euros for the railway line that connects Sagunt with Teruel, an agreement jointly supported with Teruel Existe. The citizen platform has announced that the budgets investment in the province will increase by 20 million and it will be used for projects such as the Truffle Regulatory Council, the Civil War Museum or the Lechago linear park of the Paleontological Unit and the CEFCA.
Nueva Canarias confirms its support after agreeing amendments of 100 million
The deputy of Nueva Canarias Pedro Quevedo also joins those who will vote favorably for the 2022 Budgets. The insular formation announced the ‘yes’ after the agreement reached with the Government, which has resulted in amendments for more than 100 million euros. The Canaries are satisfied with the pact because they believe that it complies with the budgetary aspects of the Economic and Fiscal Regime of the Canary Islands and important investment items.
The PRC, in accordance with the Government’s commitments
The deputy of the Cantabrian Regionalist Party, José María Mazón, confirmed that his only seat support the accounts of the coalition government, after it committed itself to the tender for the Renedo-Guarnizo railway section and the drafting of the Potes-Vega de Liébana highway project.
PNV, 6 votes in the air
Despite the fact that the Basque party has not revealed its intention to vote, it has already agreed with the Government to extend the economic benefit for the care of minors affected by cancer or another serious illness, extending protection up to 23 years, since until now the aid was limited to the 18 years. As reported by the PNV, this subsidy, contemplated in the General Law of Social Security, benefits about 8,000 families to compensate for the loss of income caused by the reduction in working hours by directly, continuously and permanently caring for minors under their care during the time of their hospitalization and continued treatment of the disease.
After a few frenzied days of negotiations, the Sánchez government is going to get its General State Budgets to go ahead. It has not been easy, because the Executive has had to ‘satisfy’ its partners, and that has caused important members of the party, such as the president of Castilla La Mancha, Emilio García-Page, to express their discomfort. Despite all the obstacles along the way, the Government has gathered (just one day before the vote) enough support to give the green light to public accounts.
