The Community of Madrid will comply with the order of the Ministry of Health that obliges the perimeter closure of the capital and nine other cities in the region after the threat of no that I was not going to comply. This was stated this Thursday by the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, in the first plenary session of the new political course. “This Government is not in absentia and will comply with all orders strictly, because we are not like its pro-independence partners. Now, yes, we will go to court again,” said the leader of the PP who a couple of hours earlier had stated that the Interterritorial Council could not “impose anything”. The Government gives 48 hours to make the limitations effective in Madrid.
Before starting the plenary session in the Madrid Assembly, Ayuso has been talking with his counselor for Justice, Enrique López. “We are going to abide by the rules and comply with the law,” the president insisted after the question of the PSOE spokesman, Ángel Gabilondo, who requested compliance with the Health order sent to the autonomous communities. Ayuso, however, has assured that what happened this Tuesday was a “back agreement without a paper” ahead.
Before the plenary session, the PP leader had been with Federico Giménez Losantos in Esradio, where he assured that the General Counsel of the Community of Madrid is already studying what to do legally with the resolution of the Interterritorial Council approved this Wednesday by a majority – several communities of the PP and Catalunya voted against – and that has been published this Thursday in the BOE. “This Council cannot impose anything,” said Ayuso before acknowledging in plenary session that he will abide by the resolution.
“This community is not in rebellion. This government is not in rebellion and will comply with all orders strictly, because we are not like its pro-independence partners. Now, yes, we will go to court again, as we did with the phase pass to defend the legitimate interests of the people of Madrid and that the measures comply with the regulations, with reality, that they are objective and fair, because if not, we will return to those queues of hunger and unemployment that you multiply by default “, has defended the Madrilenian president during the regional plenary session.
The Madrilenian leader has given her version of what happened in the last 48 hours: on Tuesday they agreed “dialogue and consensus” in a meeting “in which the vice president, Ignacio Aguado, and two ministers, Salvador Illa and Carolina Darias, were present.” The following day, as he explained, they found in the press “an order written on a brick trying to make sure no one understands anything” that sought “to unilaterally impose on all the communities a criterion” which, as has been seen, “in an allegory way now it is already published in the BOE “.
Ayuso refers to the draft that Health sent to the autonomous communities before the Interterritorial Council where it was established which would be the measures for cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants that had a cumulative incidence of 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, a positivity rate of 10% by PCR and an ICU occupancy of 35%.
Ayuso has criticized the “measures drawn up” throughout the weekend by the Government that have ended in an “imposed” order that does not take into account “the elasticity capacity of the Madrid Healthcare or that the Isabel Zendal Hospital that will be ready in four weeks, “said the Madrid president. “That order has been carefully and politically studied by his Government, by their bosses in Moncloa to whom they submit,” the PP leader has reproached the spokesperson for United Podemos-IU in the Assembly, Isa Serra .
Thus, it has influenced that they defend a “clear” regulation, that “a committee of experts is not invented the night before to impose it unilaterally on all the autonomous communities” and criticizing measures “that have been drawn up throughout the end of week to finish on an imposed order. ”
The inter-territorial agreement requires, to cities that meet the criteria, to: restrict the entry and exit of people from the municipalities except for reasons of force majeure –working, educational, health, care, among others–; reduce groups of people to a maximum of 6 both on public roads and in private spaces – more are allowed only if they live together. The order implies that movements within the municipality are not allowed.
