The restrictive measures that limit mobility in Madrid and nine other autonomous municipalities will come into effect tonight, sources from the regional government assure elDiario.es. “The order enters into force regardless of the resource,” say these same sources.
The Community of Madrid chaired by Isabel Díaz Ayuso announced that it will present an appeal this Friday to the National Court with which it will try to stop the order of the Ministry of Health that forces it to close perimeter – in addition to other restrictive measures – ten cities in the region, including the capital. The regional government will request precautionary measures, but regardless of the resource, sources from the regional government assure, the entry into force of the restrictions imposed by Health will come into effect tonight regardless of the resource. The decision to go to court divides the regional government: Ignacio Aguado, Madrid vice president, later showed his disagreement.
The regional president assured on Thursday in the Madrid Assembly during the regional plenary session, that she would abide by the measures. “This government is not in rebellion and will comply with all orders strictly,” Ayuso said. “Now, yes, we will go to court again,” continued the PP leader, who then did not report that her government planned to request precautionary measures with which it could manage to paralyze the restrictions if the judge grants them, in addition to delaying its implementation.
The agreement of the Interterritorial Council that implies closing the mobility of Madrid and nine other cities of the autonomy – Móstoles, Alcalá de Henares, Fuenlabrada, Leganés, Getafe, Alcorcón, Torrejón de Ardoz, Parla and Alcobendas – with an incidence of more than 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants during the last 14 days was published this Thursday in the Official State Gazette (BOE). The Ministry headed by Salvador Illa reported that the order was notified to the communities last night and “does not require a new publication in the BOE.”
The document gave the communities 48 hours to adopt these measures as long as they are aware that there are towns that exceed the thresholds, but in the case of the municipalities that are already affected – as occurs in ten cities in the Community of Madrid – the term is from the “notification” of the order. Therefore, the Community of Madrid had until Friday night at the latest to publish the resolution in its bulletin.
