The Canarian Coalition and the Popular Party have reached an agreement on Monday to govern in the Cabildo de Tenerife that will be chaired by Rosa Dávila, CC, the first woman to lead the island institution in its 110-year history.
The negotiating commissions headed by Rosa Dávila on behalf of the nationalists and by Lope Afonso, of the PP, have signed some twenty measures to form a “strong, stable government that will lead Tenerife to the leadership that it should never have lost in the Canary Islands,” he said. the nationalist leader
The agreement comes after the electoral results showed a majority between both political forces, with the Coalition Canaria reaping ten seats and the Popular Party eight, placing the absolute majority at 16. The PSOE repeated its victory last 28M by reaping eleven seats, the The same as in the previous elections, but it was left without allies since the other force with representation in the insular Consistory is Vox, with two seats.
The Cabildo de Tenerife plans to hold its constituent session on June 23, in which Pedro Martín, from the PSOE, will take office, heading the list with the most votes and according to Rosa Dávila, “the government alternative will be articulated in the most immediate way ” through the presentation of a motion of censure.
Rosa Dávila has described the agreement as “a great pact for stability, solvency, solidity and progress for the island” that has been forged between two moderate parties that represent an alternative “to what has been experienced in the last four years” in the corporation.
For the distribution of the ten areas in which the insular government will be made up, “the advance” registered by the Popular Party (PP) in the elections of May 28 has been taken into account, Dávila continued, so that CC will assume the Presidency and the second vice-presidency, and the popular the first and third vice-presidencies.
“Tenerife is an island that deserves to have stable, solid and solvent governments made up of people trained, prepared, so that they promote not only economic leadership but also social cohesion and the sustainability of a fragile territory”, stressed the nationalist leader.
To achieve this objective, the future insular government has been structured in such a way that the nationalists will manage the areas of Equality, Diversity, Finance and Strategic Projects; Presidency, Administration, Public Services, Territorial Planning and Historical Heritage; Natural Environment, Sustainability, Security and Emergencies; Mobility; Research, Innovation and Development and Employment, Education and Youth.
For its part, the PP will assume Tourism and Foreign Action; Social Action, Inclusion and Volunteering; Industry, Commerce, Primary Sector and Animal Welfare; Culture, Museums and Sport and Municipal Cooperation, Institutional Relations and Housing.
Lope Afonso has expressed his satisfaction at the fact that the PP is once again part of the island government “after many years” and has stressed that the agreement with CC reflects “the great challenges” that the island must face and above all represents ” a change of cycle” that in his opinion the citizens have been demanding at the polls.
“A new way of doing politics” will be promoted to give a boost to the policies of the Cabildo de Tenerife that will lead the island “towards a horizon of political and social progress”, continued Afonso, who said that reaching an agreement has prevailed of stability before personal aspirations.
Asked if the PP had claimed the Presidency of the Cabildo, Afonso considered it “legitimate” for the party to aspire to relevant positions wherever possible, but he also insisted that for the formation it was secondary to achieve this position compared to the possibility of reach a government agreement based on two coincident visions of the island.
In this regard, Rosa Dávila has alluded to the agreement embodied in an “extensive and detailed” document in which she realizes the challenges that the island faces and against which the Cabildo must act as a motor for strategic and structuring projects.
For this reason, the future president of the Cabildo de Tenerife has called on the social and economic agents to join the proposals of the island government group and thus give “a renewed impetus to the island.”
