Montero assures that there will be elections this year if the Budgets are not approved


The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has assured this Tuesday that if they do not go ahead the General Budgets of the State (PGE), the president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, will call early elections in 2019.

"If they do not approve the PGE will be elections in 2019," said Montero in an interview on TVE, collected by Europa Press, adding that the President of the Government already expressed this possibility and would advance the elections if the budgets do not receive the majority support in the courts.

"These Budgets are what citizens need to improve their living conditions", he has defended, assuring that the accounts have been drawn up "thinking about their execution".

The Government in the Red Book of the Budget, where public accounts are explained by spending programs, already published that the possibility that 2019 general elections can be celebrated in advance was not ruled out.
