Thursday, May 31st, 2018

The parliamentary spokesman and secretary general of Podemos Región de Murcia, Óscar Urralburu, pointed out that the deputies of Podemos have left the seat during questions to the president because the House "has not respected the rules of the chamber and has prevented our fundamental right as political representatives. "

Óscar Urralburu has stated that in the presence of companies involved in the Gurtel that have contracts with the regional administration, "the question we presented was more than relevant, we wanted to know if President López Miras was aware of whether the Murcian PP has been financed with the same procedures that are described in the Gurtel. "

The parliamentary spokesman recalled that the decision not to ask Podemos comes from the Bureau of the Assembly and that "it was a political decision, voted in favor of that PP veto, Ciudadanos and the president, Rosa Peñalver. have a legal report of the services of the Chamber, which we respect without any doubt, we are facing a clear political decision. "

Óscar Urralburu pointed out that the question presented by Podemos "meets all the requirements of the regulation, we ask to know why it was not admitted, although no one has yet answered us." Therefore, if this continues, we will not have another to ask for protection from the Constitutional Court ".

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

The spokesman of the Socialist Parliamentary Group Joaquín López Pagán has asked the president of the regional government for the repercussion of the ruling issued by the National Court in the Gürtel case in the regional policy.

López Pagán reproached López Miras that also in the Region of Murcia we have been protagonists of the instability caused by political corruption.

"The Region has not been news because of its potential, its talent, its tourism or the technology of our companies, we are known for corruption, for what they have called the Murcia route due to what happened with Pedro Antonio Sánchez "

The socialist spokesman snapped Lopez Miras who was president by accident, for the corruption of Pedro Antonio Sánchez.

"Once again beaten by the corruption of the PP, which the president wanted to distance himself from saying that when Gürtel was playing the flute, he did not say that he played Pedro Antonio Sanchez, so we asked López You look that is not an accomplice of corruption and work to clean up your party. "

López Pagán criticized the regional government for lacking a roadmap to solve the problems of the region: the inequality gap, economic problems, poor infrastructure.

"The Popular Party of the Region is the replica of what we are living today in the Congress of Deputies, a corrupt party from top to bottom and bottom to top," he concluded.


The PP describes as "catastrophic and incoherent" the motion of censorship debated by Pedro Sánchez

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

The deputy spokesman of the PP in the Congress, Teodoro García, warns that "a supposed government of the PSOE with separatists, nationalists and populists would be lethal for the Region of Murcia "

Criticizes that "Sanchez affirms that if he governs he will manage the Budget approved by the PP, but at the same time in the Senate they have criticized harshly and announced their vote against"

He reproaches Pedro Sánchez during his debate with the "lack of a political project for Spain, which once again demonstrates his political opportunism to reach the armchair of Moncloa without having won an election"

Urges the rest of deputies Murcia "militate in the party that militate, the vote against this motion unjustified"

The deputy spokesman of the PP in the Congress of deputies, Theodore Garcia, has ensured during the debate of the motion of censure that is being held in the Congress of deputies and that the PSOE has presented to evict President Mariano Rajoy from the Government , that "it is a catastrophic motion that goes against Spain and against the Region of Murcia, where the socialist candidate is interested only in gaining power at all costs."

Thus, he described this motion as "incoherent", because, "in the same moment in which Pedro Sánchez announced that if he is president, he would support and manage the country with the General Budgets of the State that has been approved by the PP, the PSOE. he criticized them harshly and announced his vote against during his parliamentary procedure in the Senate, "which demonstrates" the lack of direction of a PSOE that wants to lead us adrift, "he lamented.

Teodoro García considers that the motion "is good only for Pedro Sánchez", for which he has criticized that, "it seems as if the PSOE and Mr. Sánchez did not care about Spain, nor with those who are going to govern";

so he has said that "doing so will do with the Catalan separatists and the populists of Podemos, with the sole purpose of carrying out" the relay in the Moncloa without having won the elections.

Equally, the PP parliamentarian in the lower house has urged the rest of national deputies for Murcia, "militate in the party that militate" to define very well their vote to the motion because, in his opinion, "Pedro Sánchez will bring to the Region a new paralysis as it happened when the PSOE governed this country. "

At this point, he has asked for a vote against this "unjustified censorship".

For that reason, he recalled that the government that aims to form Pedro Sanchez "will bring to the region the paralysis of projects such as the Camarillas Variation, the burial of the AVE and its continuation to Lorca or Cartagena as well as tax increases for the middle classes and clashes among the Spaniards. "

"Murcia, Cartagena, Lorca and other municipalities are a priority for Sanchez and the PSOE and this is what awaits us if finally Pedro Sánchez manages to reach the Moncloa," Garcia insisted, to remember that "it will be a Government of inconsistency, bad for Spain and therefore for the Region of Murcia, because the PSOE is not interested or concerned about the problems of the Spanish, or Murcia, since we are not a priority for this hypothetical Government.

Teodoro García has referred to the visits that the Region has had during months of several ministers to the Region, "ministers who have come with projects, with facts and with a future, and they have done it with the Regional Executive of López Miras" , so he added that to govern Pedro Sánchez the Region of Murcia would stand at the tail on issues such as regional financing, as they showed when they governed the Socialists.

He also recalled that "these PGE for 2018 collect the largest investments for the Region in its history and placing it in fourth place among the communities of the rest of Spain that receive more money."

The deputy spokesman of the PP in Congress has ended defining this "possible government as the weakest of all democracy, a man who seeks to lead a national executive without having won an election and with the support of people for whom the Region of Murcia and the future of Spain are not priorities ".
