The acting president of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Pedro Martín, has considered that after his resignation The presentation of the motion of censure foreseen by the Canary Islands Coalition and the Popular Party no longer makes sense.
Martín, in statements to journalists after the constitution of the Cabildo, has said that with his resignation the deadlines for the new insular government to be formed are accelerated and he has announced that he has convened for next Monday, July 3, two plenary sessions, in one of them will see his resignation and the other will elect the new president of the corporation.
When asked if this resignation leaves open the possibility that a motion of no confidence could be filed in the next four years, Martín replied “well, he is probably right.”
“It will be difficult to present a motion of censure against someone who has resigned” reiterated Pedro Martín, who has indicated that his party has wanted to avoid the “unfortunate spectacle” that, in his opinion, the Canary Coalition gave four years ago by refusing to respect the law when his government was censored by the PSOE.
What it is about, he added, is to facilitate the transfer process from one government to another and he has indicated that he will go to the opposition with the satisfaction of leading the group with the greatest representation and the most votes.
Martín has said that he told his colleagues about his decision to resign moments before the plenary session began and has insisted that he leaves with the job done “because if you love the island, you cannot leave time bombs for whoever comes.”
He has indicated that he has not understood why the PP has not wanted to meet with them and has done what the Canary Coalition has ordered.
