The president of the Popular Party of the Canary Islands met this Monday, in Tenerife, the national deputies and popular senators with the aim of coordinating their actions
The president of the Popular Party of the Canary Islands, Manuel Domínguez, met this Monday, in Tenerife, the national deputies and popular senators with the aim of coordinating their actions to «
defend the REF and economic jurisdiction of the Islands in the General Courts and intensify activity in everything related to the foreign policy of the Government of Sánchez and its consequences for the Archipelago”, he pointed out.
Domínguez, has told his people to "act as if they were in government, because we are the alternative", and to do so
especially in foreign policy and in the jurisdiction granted by the Catholic Monarchs.
Manuel Domínguez, who "absolutely" rules out an advance of the autonomous elections in the Canary Islands, has highlighted that the Canarian jurisdiction, the Economic and Fiscal Regime (REF), "which was granted by the Catholic Monarchs, is not a privilege, but a right that we have all the canaries.
The president of the PP of the Canary Islands has been in favor of the REF being part of the Secondary Education curriculum so that young people know the Economic and Fiscal Regime and the importance it has for the development of the Canary Islands.
Manuel Domínguez has indicated that he has summoned senators and deputies to talk about the importance that the party has in the Cortes, and has commented that although the Popular Party has been important, the current moment invites us to think that it is "urgent" that
take responsibility of certain national policies.
Because, the president of the Canarian PP has affirmed, the current scenario is different from the one "never experienced" before in the history of the Canary Islands, so that on the one hand there is an "abandonment" of the autonomous community by the central executive "
as we have never lived before«.
Secondly, Manuel Domínguez has stated that the president of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres (PSOE), has become
in a "submissive" man to Pedro Sánchez, and that is why the PP "has to put more effort, work and concern on the table" for the problems of the canaries.
For this reason, he has focused on the REF and foreign policy, and has pointed out that, according to the CEOE, «
only 0.3 percent«Of the foreign investments that arrive in Spain fall on the Canary Islands, and the Economic and Fiscal Regime, he recalled, is to position the archipelago at the same level as the rest of Spain.
The REF, continued Manuel Domínguez, does not meet the objective of
develop the canarian economyand that is because it is not known or adapted to current times, such as what happened in La Palma with the volcanic eruption, nor with the pandemic.
In the words of the president of the Canarian PP, the REF has a weakness that the Basque jurisdiction does not have, and that is that it is not known by the citizens or by the rulers of Spain, and for this reason he is in favor of f
be part of the curriculum of Secondary.
He has also demanded protection for the REF, for which, he specified, it is necessary to "raise the tone a little from the Canary Islands", for which he has asked the Canarian president to abandon "submission and focus on the defense of
the interests of the canaries«.
In terms of foreign policy, he has declared that it is a "clear" example that Ángel Víctor Torres "does not ask for anything before the central government, and thus ignores the content of the letter" that the President of Spain sent to the King of Morocco, Mohamed VI , Y
don't know what to answer when asked about the deployment of NATO, or about the problems with Algeria.
Manuel Domínguez has stressed that it is not possible to live in the current situation of "confusion" like the current one without the president of the Canary Islands making a statement, and for this reason he asks the deputies and senators of the PP to "
let's assume as if we were in the government, because we are your alternative«.
The president of the PP has added that for "many years" there has been no talk of his party as a "real" alternative to the government in the Canary Islands, where he does not expect early elections, something that does not arise because Ángel Víctor Torres "knows that the pact of flowers
will not be reissued and therefore it will not put its privileged position at risk«
