Daniel Díaz and Valentín Correa will lead the candidacies of Nueva Canarias (NC) for the Parliament of the Canary Islands, for Tenerife, and for the Island Council, respectively, ahead of the upcoming elections in May.
The president of Nueva Canarias, Román Rodríguez, considers that both candidates are “the ideal people to defend Tenerife and its citizens, who are tired of seeing how the problems continue to be the same as they were three decades ago and which, logically, have worsened because nothing has been done to solve them effectively”.
Daniel Díaz, president of NC in Tenerife, assumes this challenge before the 28-M along with the task of “continuing with the structure and implementation of the canarianism of progress in Tenerife, the island with the largest population and wealth of the Canary Islands and the one that It has not progressed because power has been shared in the last 30 years between the Canary Islands Coalition and the PSOE with no other alternative”.
“Both one and the other, despite having the necessary budgets, have not been able to solve or channel key issues in Tenerife, such as health; land mobility, with the worst road network in the Canary Islands and daily traffic jams; sanitation, with uncontrolled dumping into the sea or port policy, mainly in the south of the island, with an unusable port of Granadilla or fortunately discarded projects, such as the Fonsalía, while no solution has been given to the Los Cristianos dock ”, manifested.
Valentín Correa, insular coordinator of NC, emphasized that “it is up to the citizens of Tenerife to build an island with a future and where it is worth living.”
In his opinion, “it must be removed from the backwardness that it has suffered, for many years now, due to the incompetence and neglect of those who have governed it with actions that are more gimmicky than effective.”
Along these lines, he indicates that “the time has come to have a plan for Tenerife and put it into practice, with determination, so that the island enters the 21st century once and for all”.
The NC candidate for the Cabildo de Tenerife also explained that, in other territories of the Canary Islands, “the problems that Tenerife is experiencing have already been addressed and, for this reason, the time has come for the island to opt for a third way, that of Nueva Canarias”.
Román Rodríguez added that things can only change “with the right people” at the head of the institutions.
“We cannot lose who we are as a people and we have to preserve our landscape, our culture, our roots, our gastronomy and our identity. That this happens depends on the people who have the power to decide and to place Daniel Díaz and Valentín Correa in the Parliament of the Canary Islands and the Cabildo de Tenerife so that they defend the island regardless of interests other than those of the million people of Tenerife and people from Tenerife who inhabit it”, he stressed.
