At 11.30 in the morning a press conference of the Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, is scheduled after the presentation of the General Budgets of the State 2019.
Montero and Pastor They chat amicably with budgets in hand while being photographed. It should be remembered that PSOE and PP are strongly opposed by these public accounts.
The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, and the President of the Congress, Ana Pastor, They are already in the Hall of Lost Steps of Congress. The budgets for 2019 have been presented to the graphic press on an iPad and in paper format. Also present is the president of the Committee on Budgets, Francisco de la Torre.
The leader of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, has assured that the draft of General State Budgets (PGE) for 2019 is "pure ruin" for Spain and has stressed that the chief executive, Pedro Sanchez, is "selling Spain for a handful of days in La Moncloa." "They no longer hide that they are being held hostage by the independentistas of Catalonia, that is to say, that the plate of lentils to continue in the Moncloa is worth to them to break Spain", has emphasized. In an interview with the Cope network, Casado criticized the budget table that the public accounts for 2019 will collect today, especially that he dedicates 6,000 million more in taxes and public spending that, in his opinion, was "unnecessary". "I think it is lethal for the Spanish economy and I think that the payment of its rent in the Moncloa to its populist partners is going to be too expensive," he stressed.
The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has just entered the Congress of Deputies with the General Budgets of the State in his hand. He will register the bill and deliver it to the president of the Congress, Ana Pastor, and to the president of the Committee on Budgets, Francisco de la Torre.
Good Morning. We opened directly to inform of the registration in the Congress of Deputies of the bill of the General Budgets of the State, the first accounts of the Government of Pedro Sánchez, that still do not have the necessary support.
