Vicente Boluda, shipping company and president of the Valencian Association of Businessmen (AVE) said this morning, on behalf of the association he leads, that "the investiture pact should be submitted to a consultation with the citizens." And he added that this practice "would be the most accurate because this way the Government would know the opinion of the majority of citizens on the commitments that will condition the entire legislature."
This is how he spoke this morning in Madrid before the more than 1,800 businessmen and women who gathered at an event organized by
He has assessed that the moment "is decisive for the future of Spain" and has criticized the government pact with parties, of which he has said, "they want to end Spain or reject belonging to our country."
The president of the Valencian businessmen has rejected "outright" the investiture agreements that "subject our country to investiture agreements that clearly violate two of the basic pillars of our model: the equality of all Spaniards before the Law and respect for the separation of powers".
Likewise, he said that "none of the important decisions that appear in the investiture agreements and that also affect the country as a whole, were at any time put on the table in the last electoral period, so approving them now "With the enormous social protest that we are seeing, it would be enormously politically irresponsible and would have social consequences that are very difficult to repair."
The discontent of the business associations with the proposals of the investiture pact has also been palpable during the intervention of David Lucas, Secretary of State for Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, who began by congratulating the recently elected President Pedro Sánchez, that whistles and boos have been heard in the stalls.
The Government delegate in the Valencian Community, Pilar Bernabé, present at the event, has assured that she leaves this event "concerned and saddened" because "where obviously the pace of the works cannot be criticized, other issues have been criticized" . Bernabé considers that this "was not the forum or the place to do it, because this forum represents many people who are here to defend the Mediterranean corridor."
Likewise, Bernabé has pointed out that "there is no greater respect for the democracy of this country than respecting democratic rules" and has insisted on the 5.5 billion euros that the Government has invested in the corridor in recent years. "The Government of Pedro Sánchez is the one that has done the most for the Mediterranean corridor," said Bernabé.
