· WARNS THAT "HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
JOBS” AND “THE ECONOMIC RECOVERY IS SABOTAGED”
· “IN SPAIN THERE ARE NO TOURISTS TOO MUCH, BUT EXTREMISTS, XENOPHOBES,
POPULISTS AND POLITICIANS WHO SOW HATE”
· ALERT THAT "ANDALUSIA CANNOT AFFORD THE RISK THAT

The President of the People's Party
Malaga and Andalusian PP spokesman, ELÍAS BENDODO, today criticized the
complicity of the PSOE regarding the attacks on tourism by
of Podemos and independentistas, an action that he has described as
"vandalism and irresponsibility" by endangering "hundreds of
thousands of jobs.
“They are sabotaging the recovery and the best creation figures
of employment in the last ten years", Bendodo warned during his
intervention in an act of the party in support of the tourism sector in the
that the vice-secretary for Autonomous Policy has also intervened
and Local of the PP, JAVIER ARENAS, the president of the Commonwealth of
Municipalities of the Western Costa del Sol, MARGARITA DEL CID, and the
mayor of Torrox and spokesperson for the PP in the Commonwealth of Municipalities
Costa del Sol-Axarquía, ÓSCAR MEDINA.
In this sense, the popular leader has indicated that if Spain is
growing more than any other advanced economy on the planet, “it is
by many factors, such as the reforms adopted by the Government
by Mariano Rajoy; but also due to the drive of our companies and
tourism sector, where we are the first power in the world”.
Bendodo considers it "paradoxical" that it is necessary to defend "the obvious,
a sector that brings wealth and employment", but has warned that "a
this has been reduced part of Spanish politics in recent
times: a party that defends stability, good sense and
economic development, such as the PP; and then the rest of the matches
left, with a PSOE that has become the party of the
insecurity and the destruction of employment and opportunities”.
In this regard, the provincial president has pointed out that although the
attacks on tourism "are an invention of Podemos, of Ada Colau and her
pro-independence friends", this is carried out "with the support or, at the
less, the consent of the PSOE”. "Doesn't Colau govern
Barcelona with the support of the PSOE? Don't the socialists rule in
Balearic Islands, or here in Malaga in Marbella, Benalmádena or Torremolinos
with the support of Podemos?", he questioned.
“In Spain there are not too many tourists, but extremists, xenophobes,
populists and politicians who sow hatred", stressed Bendodo,
who has shown his rejection "of the parties that live off the
frustration and discomfort and who want to end the recovery and
even with the industry in which we are world leaders”.
A RECORD SUMMER
During his speech, the president of the popular Malagas has
celebrated that Malaga and the Costa del Sol are living a summer
record tourism revenue: 7.100 billion euros expected
only between June and September "and throughout 2017 our forecast is
that we will exceed 11.600 million in income from the activity
“All of this would be put at risk if a drifting PSOE is forced to
to agree with Podemos to have the government of the Junta de
Andalusia", pointed out the popular leader, who added that
"We are already seeing doubts in the PSOE regarding tourism, a sector to which
that it is not necessary to put limits or barriers, but simply to know
manage them, like any other activity”.
For this reason, he has warned that "Andalusia cannot afford the
risk that the PSOE will leave tourism in the hands of Podemos as a possible
government partner, after he has had no problem reaching
government agreements in so many municipalities in our region”.
"Susana Díaz will be able to do it as long as the PP does not govern
in Andalusia", he has sentenced.
“Tourism is the security industry, and any uncertainty
can throw to the ground all the good work developed by the
businessmen and workers in the Andalusian tourism sector”, has valued
Bendodo, who has assured that the Andalusian PP "will continue alongside the
tourism sector, working to improve the performance of this
activity in such a way that it is of higher quality and creates more and more
