• The vice-secretary has participated in the table A look at the cities of the future, in the Intermunicipal that the PP has held this weekend in Zaragoza

The deputy secretary of the Andalusian PP Welfare Society, Ana Mestre, has today vindicated the "responsible and close municipalism" of the Andalusian PP, and has defended the "human factor" as the "key" to the success of the Popular Party in the municipal governments of Andalusia

Mestre has participated in the Intermunicipal that the PP celebrates this weekend in Zaragoza, at the table A look at the cities of the future, moderated by Andrea Levy and with a presentation by the Minister of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda, Álvaro Nadal. The Intermunicipal has had the participation in the closing, this noon, of the President of the Government, Mariano Rajoy.

During his speech, he underlined the importance of governing with perspective: "In politics it is inconceivable to make responsible decisions without thinking about the future," he stated, in contrast to other "short-term and opportunistic" positions that, he said, "only make a lot of noise but they do not contribute anything to well-being”.

"You have to do responsible and far-sighted politics, thinking not about the next elections, but about the next generations," he added.

He affirmed that “in public management, causalities do not exist, and it is a fact that in those municipalities where the PP governs, people live better; the success of popular management is the result of successful work, full of commitments and values”.

In this sense, he said that the "human factor" is key to the success of popular management and the model of cities defended by the Andalusian PP: "Municipalism cannot be a complement to political discourse or action, but rather a conviction -he said- based on principles such as honesty, empathy and social sensitivity. It is useless to have the best resources if the neighbors do not feel identified with the management”, she affirmed.

He said that the objective and the challenge is the promotion and management of cities that are "friendly cities, to live and coexist", and pointed to policies based on the proximity of the administration, fiscal flexibility, efficiency, attention to culture and tradition and generosity with the concerns and needs of all generations.

In this sense, he said that “new technologies, well managed, not only generate greater and better relationships between people, but also generate progress that results in social welfare; but to all the innovative resources to achieve more comfortable cities, we must add the human factor”, he insisted.
