• He blames Díaz for not being able to answer anything during the debate held yesterday
• He tells Ciudadanos that "they cannot pretend to be the change when they have been part of the problem"
The president of the Andalusian PP and candidate for the Presidency of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, today asked the president of the Junta, Susana Díaz, to withdraw the school textbook that defines Spain as a plurinational state, which she did yesterday reference during the electoral debate on Canal Sur TV.
Moreno regretted that Susana Díaz did not rule on the existence of this book, approved by the Ministry of Education, and reproached her for, throughout the debate, "was not capable of answering anything, nor of giving explanations, nor of making promises”. "She did not even give explanations to questions as simple as what were the reasons for requesting the withdrawal of the Board from the ERE trial," she stressed.
"She kept herself in a second role, as if the elections were not with her and she had not had any responsibility as president of the Junta de Andalucía during the last five years," said Moreno, who affirmed that she saw Díaz "blocked by events ”.
On the role of the Ciudadanos candidate, Juan Marín, he said that yesterday's debate "helped to unmask someone who has been an accomplice these years of socialist management, a submissive partner who has been under the orders of socialism during these years."
“Nobody can claim to be the change when they have been part of the problem, and Ciudadanos have become part of the problem by supporting socialist policies for the last three and a half years,” he said.
Moreno was satisfied that during yesterday's debate, as a candidate of the Popular Party, "it became clear that we are a political project with a program, with proposals and a clear roadmap for Andalusia", and recalled some of the proposals that he did in the health, economic and social spheres, such as the massive reduction in taxes. "We are talking about a real and possible Andalusia," he stressed.
Juanma Moreno made these statements during a visit to the historic center of Granada, where he was accompanied by the provincial president, Sebastián Pérez; the number candidate for the PP Parliament for the province, Marifrán Carazo; and other members of the candidature.
Moreno regretted that Granada "has become the Cinderella of the socialist administration" and that the Board "has ostracized investors" from the capital. As examples of the mismanagement of the Díaz government in the capital and in the province, he put the management of the Alhambra, which has led to a judicial investigation for corruption in the 'audio guide case'; and Cetursa, whose management, he said, "is another example of the inability of the PSOE, which blocks progress and creates problems." In this sense, he wondered why, after 15 days of snowfall and with more than 20 kilometers of skiable slopes, the ski resort has not yet opened.
Moreno said that with a PP government "we will return to the people of Granada the participation in the management of the income generated by the Alhambra and Sierra Nevada", and that all the institutions will participate in the management model.
It also considered priority the taking of measures for the agri-food sector in the province, as well as the construction of the pipelines of the Siles dam; a work, he highlighted "that would generate hundreds of millions of euros and thousands of wages."
Finally, he asked Susana Díaz for explanations for maintaining support for the mayor of Granada, charged for two years, as well as the president of the Diputación de Huelva, who has been charged by the Justice for a year.
