91.5% of the EH Bildu membership that has participated this Thursday in an extraordinary general assembly has supported the affirmative vote for the General State Budgets, as reported by the Abertzale coalition and collected by Europa Press. EH Bildu has held an extraordinary general assembly where the militancy has been able to decide on the positioning proposal made by the Table with reference to the General State Budgets.
EH Bildu exhibits its most pragmatic face and revolutionizes the Spanish political scene with its agreements with Sánchez and Chivite
The bases have had to answer the question: “Do you agree that the five deputies of EH Bildu in the Spanish Congress of Deputies vote affirmatively for the PGE of the PSOE-Podemos Government?”. A total of 1,453 votes have been in favor of supporting the PGE (91.5% of the total votes cast), 89 votes have been against supporting the public accounts (5.6%) and there have been 46 blank votes (2 , 9%), for a total of 1,588 votes cast.
EH Bildu has taken 48 million euros from the Government of Sánchez in amendments. Among them are amendments for the aeronautical sector, for railway infrastructures in the Basque Country and up to three million euros for the works of the N-121-A in Navarra. The Abertzale coalition has revolutionized the Spanish political board by reaching agreements with both Sánchez and María Chivite, the president of Navarra. In this context, there has been a struggle with the PNV to show itself as the best negotiator with the central government. Each formation has described the achievements of the opposite in Madrid as “birrias” and the ‘jeltzales’ have accuse of “plagiarizing” the amendments.
