This regulation will also regulate the legislative initiative and the normative powers of the Government
The Autonomous Government Council approved this Wednesday the draft
Law of the Presidency and Government of the Canary Islandswhose purpose is to regulate the statute and powers of the president, the organization, legal regime and operation of the Executive and its relations with the regional Parliament.
It will also regulate the legislative initiative and the regulatory powers of the Government, the Executive explained in a statement.
This initiative is carried out due to the need to adapt the system, organization and operation of the Presidency and the Government of the Canary Islands, institutions that have been governed for four decades by Law 1/1983, of April 14, of the Government and the Public Administration of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands,
first and only law passed by the Provisional Parliament.
The Canarian Executive has deemed it necessary to adapt the system, organization and operation of the Presidency and the Government of the Canary Islands both as a consequence of the reform of the Statute of Autonomy of the Canary Islands, in which the configuration of both institutions is modified, and for the convenience of correct the deficiencies, insufficiencies and shortcomings that have been revealed during the validity of Law 1/1983.
The regulatory proposal, which now
must be processed by the Parliament of the Canary Islandsdeals with the statutory development of two basic institutions of self-government of the autonomous community with an updated and more complete regulation of its regime, organization and operation.
This regulation highlights that the president, in addition to the performance of the Presidency of the autonomous community of the Canary Islands, corresponds to the leadership of the executive collegiate body, which gives it special institutional relevance, as it holds the maximum representation of the autonomous community of the Canary Islands and, jointly, the ordinary representation of the State in it.
Along with this, it is considered necessary that the law contains the essential rules relating to the relations of the Government of the Canary Islands with the Autonomous Parliament, without thereby undermining the scope reserved by the statutes to the regulations of the representative body of the Canarian people.
