• The deputy secretary of the Andalusian PP Welfare Society accuses the Díaz government of "creating false expectations and lying to the Andalusians"
• "The Board stops contributing more than 600 million annually for the payment of benefits"
The deputy secretary of the Andalusian PP Welfare Society, Ana Mestre, assured this Friday that Andalusia supports the largest waiting list for Dependency in all of Spain, with almost 96.000 Andalusians with the recognized right and waiting to receive the corresponding benefit. Of these, more than 36.400 are heavily dependent.
Mestre has denounced the breach by the government of Susana Díaz of its budget contribution commitments for the development of the Dependency Law, as well as the delay in the processing of the files, which has resulted in an unbearable waiting list.
Ana Mestre has ensured that the Board stops contributing more than 600 million euros annually for the payment of benefits, while the Government of the nation has been delivering an average of 844 million euros per year.
"The PSOE is determined to demonize the management of social policies carried out by the Government, but the reality is that the Board neither meets its financing commitments, nor executes what is budgeted or manages effectively," Mestre pointed out.
The deputy secretary of the Andalusian PP Welfare Society has also stated that of the 93.000 files initiated, only less than 18.000 have been completed and sent to the Government.
«The percentage of dependents waiting for the benefit in Andalusia is 33,5 percent, a figure much higher than that of other communities, such as Galicia, where it is 21,5%; Madrid, 17%, or Castilla y León, where it is only 1,3 percent, "said Mestre, who has pointed out that in these and other communities "they do a better management of the Unit without beating their chests."
Ana Mestre has assured that she sees Díaz and his government "more concerned with making headlines than solving the problems of the Andalusians", and that the data "should make Mrs. Díaz blush", from whom she has asked for "more humility and more work" and that "do not create false expectations or lie to the Andalusians anymore".
