SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Oct. 13 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The spokesperson for the Mixed Group in the Parliament of the Canary Islands, Vidina Espino, has registered this Wednesday a request to the Bureau of the Chamber in which she requests that the 200,000 euros that the Chamber plans to donate to La Palma, to help alleviate the catastrophe generated by the volcanic crisis, add another 200,000 euros from the remainder of the Mixed Group.
This initiative, which Vidina Espino announced at a press conference, joins the non-law proposal (NLP) approved unanimously in the last plenary session, at the proposal of the Mixed Group and enriched by all groups, which includes ten points with the main measures to be adopted on La Palma, “in order to guarantee that all the promises made to the palm trees after the eruption are fulfilled”.
The Canarian deputy has pointed out that these 200,000 euros are just over half of the funds available to the Mixed Group at this time, “thanks to being thrifty and rigorous with the use of public money.”
Vidina Espino took advantage of the press conference to deny that the Chamber Board declared her a “turncoat inside,” as some media outlets have pointed out, and explained that this governing body of Parliament “has said it is just the opposite “to what has been published, because” it cannot make statements based on political evaluations or agreements, but based on the laws and the Rules of the Chamber itself. “
In this sense, he has stressed that, according to the Parliament’s Regulations and Spanish laws, he is not a turncoat, since his decision to leave Ciudadanos “is due to the breach of the commitments acquired” by this party with the Canaries, when they appeared at the elections. “I have not gone to another party nor have I used my vote to bring about a change of government. The law is on my side and I will defend my rights to political representation,” he insisted.
The spokesperson for the Mixed Group has called attention to “the persecution that has been undertaken” against her “by a party called nationalist, which claims to defend the rights of the Canaries” and whose creation, she recalled, “is produced as a consequence of the greater case of transfuguismo of the history of the Canary Islands “.
In her opinion, this behavior of Nueva Canarias and, more specifically, of its president, Román Rodríguez, is due to “the defense of the interests of the Canaries” exercised by her, which has led her to “tell him a few truths to Mr. Rodríguez in Parliament “.
Among them, he has indicated that he had reproached him for “not executing part of the budget, when thousands of canaries are having a bad time, his arrangements with the Sánchez Government, so as not to demand that what belongs to the canaries be paid for justice, such as money of the sentence of highways, or the expense in electoral surveys cooked to his liking “.
He has also referred to the complaints made about “his increasing spending on advisers, his repeated salary increases, his goings-on on public television and his lack of education and macho attitudes.”
According to Vidina Espino, the vice president of the Canarian Government “is uncomfortable and annoyed by political criticism because he presents him to the public as he is, a politician who, if he ever had the vocation of public service, lost it a long time ago and now he does. what he does is use what is public “.
He has also warned that, in 40 years, the Parliament of the Canary Islands has requested six opinions from the Advisory Council, “on very few occasions and in matters of great importance such as the Statute of Autonomy.” One of those six, as she has reported, is her situation as a deputy, “also skipping the Chamber’s Legal Services”, who, in her opinion, “would in all probability have said that Parliament should apply the Regulations and laws, not pacts between parties, they are not law. “
The spokeswoman for the Mixed Group has commented that the Chamber’s Rules of Procedure “are clear” with regard to this group and has given as an example that “the same situation that occurs now has already occurred in the past”, when two of the three PIL deputies that made it up left the political formation with which they stood for the elections and continued working with total normality and all their rights in the aforementioned group.
