The mayor of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, José Manuel Bermúdez (CC), stated this Friday that the support of his nationalist formation for the investiture of Pedro Sánchez “may be a bad agreement for the Canary Coalition” from an electoral point of view but ” good” for the general interests of the archipelago.
In an interview given to ‘Canarias Radio’ and collected by Europa Press, he indicated that he took a position against the investiture but once the political decision was made he abided by it, and now, as mayor, he has made the decision to request a report. to municipal legal services to evaluate possible initiatives that could paralyze the amnesty law.
He has said that he has given the order “as mayor” and not as a leader of CC and based on an agreement from the last plenary session, which had the support of CC, PP and Vox, in which the City Council positioned itself against the amnesty.
Bermúdez has pointed out that “he had to do something more” once the bill was registered in Congress if a city council understands that “it violates the rule of law” and now we have to wait for the legal services to rule on it “which way to go” of must take.
He has also insisted that the vote in favor of the deputy Cristina Valido “is very well profitable” if the agreement regarding the ‘Canarian agenda’ is fulfilled, even more so when “it was not necessary” given that Pedro Sánchez was going to be inaugurated. either way.
Bermúdez has indicated that he always puts the city “ahead” over the interests of his own party, although on Tuesday he informed the general secretary, Fernando Clavijo, of his intentions to try to stop the amnesty law.
“I called the President of the Government the day before and told him what I was going to do and since CC has expressed itself very emphatically with its no to the amnesty, he told me, very good, moving forward, you are going to be the first mayor.” of Spain to do it, well that’s what I take away,” he indicated.
