Councilwoman Gloria Martín explained that, while on duty, the Government of Pedro Sánchez has approved aid by Royal Decree for 300 million euros to mitigate the effects of the creditors' contest of the wholesale travel agency Thomas Cook.
Through this formula, tomorrow it will release another 4,500 million due to autonomy, while unable to maintain its commitment to face the 7.2 million that it costs to maintain the IBI bonus for those affected by the earthquake
The councilor of the United Left-Greens, Gloria Martín, has criticized that the Government of Pedro Sánchez uses the formula of the Royal-Decree "at convenience" while in office, but not to fulfill its commitment to keep this year's 50% bonus IBI for those affected by earthquakes.
Gloria Martín recalled that on August 20 his political training urged, unsuccessfully, the Murcia deputies of the PSOE in Congress to require the Government of Pedro Sánchez to approve a Royal Decree-Law to maintain said bonus.
"We told them to approve a Royal Decree Law before the dissolution of the Courts to maintain the IBI bonus, because it was preferable to be validated by the Congress rather than by the Permanent Deputation and because it was necessary to end the uncertainty that affected to the Lorca, "explained Martín.
However, "we were told that it was not feasible for the Government to approve royal decrees while on duty," which has turned out to be a "hoax."
The mayor has indicated, for example, that through Royal Decree Law 2/2019, of October 4, the acting Government of Pedro Sánchez has approved specific aid to mitigate the economic impacts produced by the bankruptcy of the agency of Thomas Cook wholesale travel on the economy of the Balearic Islands, worth 300 million euros.
Everything indicates that, in addition, tomorrow Friday, the acting Executive of the PSOE will also use the formula of the Royal Decree to release 4.5 billion euros owed to the autonomies.
The argument of the Ministry of Finance is that this announcement does not compromise the General Budgets next year, so Martin has wondered if 4.5 billion are not a problem and if the 7.2 it would cost the Government to fulfill its promise of maintaining aid to those affected by earthquakes.
Martín has anticipated that the PSOE government will foreseeably pull the Royal Decree-Law in full pre-campaign for the 10N Generals to cover the battery of electoralist announcements it is making in recent days.
In this regard, the councilwoman of IU-Greens described as "electoral trick" the use that the PSOE is making of this matter.
"They come to tell the neighbors that if they are good and they vote for them they may keep the bonus," said Martin, when the reality is that "his Government has not shown the slightest intention to fulfill what was promised," nor they have materialized the three million euros for districts that they also insured.
"This was so that the Murcia deputies of the PSOE in Congress had formed the gas," said Martin, who warned that, however, some have the sad record of not having presented a sad parliamentary question since they collected their minutes in the Month of May.
The IU councilor has expressed concern that 44,000 residents of the area of â€‹â€‹maximum impact by the earthquakes, will face the tax without the bonus, which will mean "a very hard stick to your pockets."
And, for eight years, the effects of the "catastrophe" appeared blurred by the bonus, but now they will be shown "with all its rawness."
