Belarra believes that the measures approved by the Council of Ministers “perfectly respond” to their requests to “intervene directly to withdraw the profits that have fallen from the sky.”
The Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, in a recent appearance.
United We can celebrate that some of their claims are “translated” this Tuesday in the Royal Decree approved by the Government with the aim of alleviating the rising price of the electricity bill, “a social problem of the first dimension.”
Through a package of measures, the Executive has promised to stop the advance of the price in the receipt until it leaves it in figures of 2018, when the consumer paid about 600 euros per year in electricity. To do this, it plans to inject 2,600 million from returns from the energy sector.
Some “brave and forceful” measures, as defined by the Minister of Social Rights and secretary general of Podemos, Ione Belarra, and that “respond perfectly” to the requests of the purple people in recent weeks, when they demanded the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, “intervene directly to withdraw profits from the sky.”
In the purple ranks they preferably celebrate the “wholesale market price regulation”, achieved after the “cheaper” energies (nuclear and hydroelectric) are prevented from “overpaying”, as requested by United We Can, and slowing down so that the electricity companies achieve “millionaire profits” that, in Belarra’s eyes, are “unfair and undeserved” and that from now on they will go “directly to pay the electricity bill.” A measure that Belarra aspires to “turn into a structural regulation”, since at the moment it is only a “temporary emergency”
“We have been told so many times that it could not be done and today, however, we see that it has been achieved,” Belarra celebrated, who has explained -metafrica- that thanks to the measure adopted by the Government at the request of United We can you are going to avoid “paying for orange juice at the price of French champagne.”
“The best of the news”
Why, for weeks, the socialist part of the Executive has discarded this model and now has yielded to the proposals of United We Can? “This question must be asked of the majority partner of the Government,” said the Minister of Social Rights. In this sense, United We can repeat that they have never given their arm to twist and that the Royal Decree approved this Tuesday is proof that, regardless of the differences that exist between the two parties, “the Government has listened to the citizen.”
During the last days, the opposition dismissed as “interventionist” the Executive’s plan to reduce, in vain, the price of the electricity bill. Thus, the Popular Party called on the forces that make up the Government to end the time slots. This Tuesday, the national spokesman for the popular and mayor of Madrid, Jos Luis Martnez-Almeida, regretted that President Sánchez “assumes the thesis of Podemos” on this matter.
“The fact that we have heard so many times in recent weeks that the measures that Unidos Podemos was proposing were not realistic, that they could not be transformed into legislation, and today we are seeing that it is possible and that it is translated into this Royal Decree Law It is the best news for our country, “the leader of the purple ones congratulated on the turn taken by the entire Government. Something on which the PP spokesperson in the Lower House, Cuca Gamarra, has influenced, who has influenced that this model “greatly worries” the opposition: “It seems that we are passing from Peronism to Pedronism,” he warned. “You know how it begins but not how it ends.”
“Does anyone imagine that this would have happened if we were not in the Government?”, The president of the United We Can Confederal Group in the Congress of Deputies asked himself, Jaume asens, in a line similar to the words spoken by Belarra to highlight the influence of United We Can in the decision-making of the Council of Ministers. “In the end it seems that it could be done”, ironically the parliamentary spokesman for United We Can, Pablo Echenique, after learning about part of this plan, advanced on Monday night by President Sánchez in an interview with TVE.
The regulation of prices of the wholesale market is not the only measure adopted within the Executive at the initiative of the purple ones, according to Belarra, who this Tuesday also met with the hairdressing and image sector.
In tax matters, the creation of an “auction” has also been approved to “extract part of the energy from the wholesale market”, so that small trading companies and the industry “can bid on energy at a cheaper price.” A solution rated “very important” by Belarra.
On the other hand, the leader of Podemos has also been pleased that the Government has approved, as part of this package, a vital minimum supply with which “to protect the most vulnerable families”, as the vice president has defined on this point second, Yolanda Daz. “In our country, no one should be left without electricity.”
