The Valencian Language Academy, AVL, has published a tweet on the X network (formerly Twitter) in which it expresses its "concern" about Vox's proposal to "exclude the city of Alicante from the Valencian-speaking area." In the opinion of the Valencian regulatory entity, this decision "would mean depriving the people of Alicante of their linguistic rights and their historical identity."
Vox has put forward a proposal, in which it expects the support of the PP that governs alone, but without an absolute majority, so that the city becomes predominantly Castilian linguistically, which in practice would mean a reduction in the presence of Valencian in the classrooms. The plenary session will be held tomorrow.
The main agreement of the initiative seeks for the Plenary to urge the Valencian Cortes - which is the Parliament that has jurisdiction - "to modify Law 4/1983, of November 23, on the use and teaching of Valencian, eliminating the municipal term of Alicante of article 35 (municipal terms of Valencian linguistic predominance) and including it in article 36 (municipal terms of Castilian linguistic predominance)"
