Patxi López says that “when there is a lack of dialogue, it must be replaced,” and posits that there may be complaints or resources, but they must be met
BILBAO, August 4 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The PSOE speaker in the House of Representatives and former lehendakari, Patxi López, has replied to the lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, that “if there is a lack of dialogue” about the energy saving plan, “it must be replaced”. but he thinks it’s “perfect” that the Basque President is making it clear that the Basque Country will comply with the measures, although he bemoans the lack of co-governance. “That’s the attitude”, ditch.
In an interview with Radio Euskadi, collected by Europa Press, López referred to the controversy caused by the actions of the energy saving plan approved by the central government by legislative decree. “We are the country that serves ‘no’ and if the Spanish government says so, less, and if it’s not mine, even less,” he summarizes.
The PSOE spokesman thinks it’s “perfect” that Urkullu has made it clear that the Basque Country will comply with energy saving measures, although he believes that the central executive “in this case will respect the much-proclaimed governance, without the normative intervention of the communities in rule out the proposed measure from the outset”.
“If there’s been a lack of dialogue, it needs to be delivered, perfect, but that’s the attitude of saying that needs to be met. And then I already complain about what I have to complain about or I already fall back on that, what I have to fall back on”, held.
Referring to the Basque government’s call for a plan of its own, Patxi López has urged the regional government to stick to the state plan, wondering “where all this noise is taking us” if, in his opinion, “the best thing is it.” to do, we roll up our sleeves and all work together, all people and all institutions, and row together in the same direction to avoid greater evils”. In his opinion, all these controversies only lead to “an empty and artificial struggle”.
López has said that if he were at the helm of the Basque government, he would first “obey what is a legislative decree and then he would say that we can do more and they could do it” because “if we can do a lot.” better”.
In this sense, he recalled that yesterday the Minister for Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment, Arantxa Tapia, proposed a plan to combat the effects of the drought and proposed what would happen if he said it was “an event”.
“It does not seem to me to be an event, it seems to me that it must be done, just as the Spanish government, given the European Union’s proposal, issued a decree to do what must be done,” he added, in order insisting that “there is no more controversy”.
Asked if this plan hasn’t failed to confront the autonomous communities and more governance, López stated that “the dialogue has to work at all times”, but took the view that “what needs to be done is to approach the situation quickly.” respond and the government has responded quickly to the situation we are going through.
“The other thing – he insisted – is the closure of businesses, they are very serious and very serious restrictions on our homes.” For this reason he has called for “acting first, to do well, to make that saving reach”.
The Basque executive’s use of the terms “gimmick and incident” in reference to the Sánchez executive’s energy-saving plan is “out of place.” “What happens, is it an event if the Spanish government decides it and it’s not an event if the Basque government decides it? Is it a gimmick if the Spanish government decides it and is it not a gimmick if the Basque government decides it? ‘ he insisted, pleading to ‘stop the noise once and for all and let’s work together’.
As he pointed out, Pedro Sánchez’s executive is launching an energy saving plan that aims to “save 7% of energy with effort, but with minimal effort”, and for this he has indicated: “we moderate the air temperature, air conditioning, we turn off shop windows at night and we regulate public lighting”.
“With the huge crisis that can cut off their gas, what are the Germans thinking that we are arguing about?” he asked, reminding himself “what Europe was asking for was a 15 percent cut and the closure of the production of companies”.
In this sense, he has wondered whether “we do nothing and close Basque companies or make this small effort”. “The other is not supportive and plays that this is an event because the Spanish government decides it and it’s not an event because I decide it, it’s not what’s touching at the moment but putting our shoulders to the wheel and to fight together to prevent these greater evils,” he warned. In that sense, he believes “certainly” that 27 degrees is “normal” to see and that “if the shop windows don’t light up, nothing happens”.
On the other hand, López has stated that he does not equate the actions of the Basque government with those of the President of the Autonomous Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who assured that he would not comply with the actions of the central executive. “If he has not complied, yes, because failure to comply with a legislative decree is not possible in a democracy, but I am convinced that he will comply,” he said.
Referring to the recourse to the energy measures decree announced by the Autonomous Community of Madrid, the socialist spokesman said that it seems “perfect” because it is “a legal and democratic path that anyone can take”, but as he warned , “What cannot be is to say that I do not comply and that the spokesman for the People’s Party came out and said that he gave the autonomous communities the freedom to comply or not.”
In his opinion, “that doesn’t give freedom, it grants impunity to commit a crime because the laws are obeyed in a democracy.” “If he wants to appeal, he should appeal, but as long as he complies,” he reiterated.
