Torrent (Valencia), September 23 (EFE).- The vice-president of the Consell, Aitana Mas, assured that the Valencian government has not yet spoken of figures to prepare the budgets of the Generalitat for 2023 and no date has been set for the first meeting of the political commission which will negotiate the accounts.
All the information is being compiled to start the work and review the documentation that the Consellerias have submitted, to later discuss in committee a first draft budget and how to balance income and expenditure, reported Mas after the plenary session of the Consell, which was held this Friday in Torrent (Valencia).
The budgets will again include the claim and the fictitious item for the underfunding of €1,336 million as no transitional funds have been articulated and no new regional funding system has been approved.
Regarding other funds for the transition to the new normal, Mas indicated that he had not heard of “I don’t know how many thousands of euros” being sought, and stressed that everything would show up over the next few weeks. .
Asked about tax cut announcements from other communities such as Andalucia and Madrid, the vice-president said Andalucia has now joined the tax dump “with a war between the two to see what paradise is of the rich”, and in this sense defended “minimum” harmonization on the part of the central government.
On the other hand, he said, the Botànic government is focusing “on the opposite” and, instead of putting the magnifying glass on “very small segments of the population, those with the highest incomes”, it is working on a tax reform proposal that responds to the needs of families and people who are struggling to make ends meet, as was done in 2017 and benefited 1.5 million Valencians.
“In our case, we make proposals for the majority, while the PP, in Andalusia recently, does so for 0.2% of the population,” he criticized.
The Consell is committed that companies can continue to invest in the Valencian Community and “this happens by having a society that does not put its public services at risk”, according to Mas, which has had an impact on good health , education and public services and guaranteeing a welfare state that “can serve as a springboard for good economic activity”.
