The president of the Andalusian PP, Juanma Moreno, has denounced today the "abandonment" of the Board to the municipalities of inland Andalusia, and has called for measures to give its inhabitants more opportunities and reactivate their socioeconomic situation.

During the control session of the Andalusian government in Parliament, Moreno said that "the socialist governments have made large areas of the interior of Andalusia an industrial wasteland, and have condemned its inhabitants to choose between unemployment or emigration."

The president of the Andalusian PP gave the province of Jaén as an example, which, he said, "is rebelling against a history of abandonment." Thus, he recalled that Linares is the city with the highest unemployment in Spain, with 44,5% unemployment, and that Jaén has 33,7%. In addition, he said that depopulation "is a real threat", as the province has lost more than 27.000 inhabitants in eight years. A “serious problem”, he stressed, which also affects the north of Córdoba, the west of Granada and other rural areas. "One in four Andalusian towns has less than a thousand inhabitants," he recalled.

Moreno warned of the "enormous accumulated debt" of the Junta with the interior of Andalusia, and also listed the "historic breaches" of the PSOE with the province, such as the Ciudad Sanitaria, the Olivar highway or the Jaén Córdoba, the Transport Center Warehouse of Bailén, the Innovandújar Park or the Linares Futuro Industrialization Plan.

On the other hand, he recalled his "resounding commitment" and that of the Andalusian Popular Party with the implementation of an ITI for the province that the Board continues to fail to comply with. Along these lines, he criticized the fact that in the meeting with the platforms the PSOE spokesman placed "limits" on the preparation of the document. "He made it clear that not one more step, not one more euro for the needs of Jaén," he snapped.

He reiterated that the province is "tired of so much non-compliance" and called on Díaz to "begin to get involved with Jaén." "At least prevent the closure of the Chamber of Commerce," he stressed. .


The president of the Andalusian PP said that in this "gap" that separates Andalusia from the rest of Spain, women are the ones who suffer the most, and pointed out that "Andalusian women suffer enormous social injustice that places them at a disadvantage."

In this sense, he stressed that in Andalusia women have more than six unemployment points than men and eight points more than the rest of the Spanish women; eight more points of temporality; who work for free 87 days a year, 33 days more than the national average; as well as the low level of representation that corresponds to them in management positions and senior positions of the Junta de Andalucía. “There is no reason that justifies it,” she said.

He affirmed that Díaz's word "has no value" and asked him to "go from words to deeds at once" because "he has the responsibility to reverse this situation."


Finally, he valued the majority agreement between the Andalusian parties on regional financing, and asked Díaz, given the dissenting votes presented by the Popular Party, to "see that the agreement comes to a good end."

He said that although the agreement does not include 100% of the aspirations of the PP, "Andalusia wins and is stronger with the voice of the Andalusian PP", and encouraged the president of the Board, whom he reproached for the "zeal" in his doubts on an agreement with the Andalusian PP, to "follow the path of the agreement on other vital issues such as employment, health, or gender violence."

"It is better to agree than to confront," he stressed.
