SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Nov. 9 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, has congratulated the Ministry of Social Rights for having been able to carry out the new Catalog of social services and benefits in just three years since the approval of the Social Services Law in 2019.
In response to a question from the spokesperson for the Socialist Parliamentary Group, Nira Fierro, the president stressed that the new Catalog had been approved with a “very broad” consensus and that the Ministry led by Noemí Santana had been “capable of carrying out” this catalog despite criticism from the opposition and from the third sector for its delay.
In this sense, Ángel Víctor Torres wanted to remind that there are autonomous communities that approved their Social Services Law in 2009 and thirteen years later have not yet approved their Catalog of social services and benefits.
Torres highlighted that it is a “participatory” document that “should bring joy” to the Parliament as a whole and advanced that after its approval it will now go to the sphere of the economic area, to the Governing Council and to the Consultative Council.
