The head of the opposition, in a visit to merchants in Sant Adrià del Besòs, demands direct aid for the self-employed and regrets that the Government makes announcements of millions of euros that later did not materialize
"We hope that Iceta does not return us to the starting box of the‘ procés ’with a new tripartite." This has been said by the head of the opposition in Catalonia and president of the Citizens (Cs) group in the Parliament, Carlos Carrizosa, when addressing the media after visiting merchants and freelancers in Sant Adrià del Besòs (Barcelona). Carrizosa recalled that the tripartites of former presidents Pascual Maragall and José Montilla "were the prelude to‘ procés ’" and stated that “now what is needed is a change in Catalan politics”.
The head of the opposition has remarked that "we do not want a tripartite party where ERC sends the PSC what it has to do, with Miquel Iceta as vice president of Pere Aragonès" and added that "what we really need is a government that really looks to the self-employed, for their families and their children ”. "When ERC negotiated the General State Budgets (PGE) only thought about their problems, about their fellow prisoners for hitting democracy and removing Castilian from Catalan classrooms," he regretted and added that, meanwhile, Cs "asked for the same aid that is being given in Germany to help the self-employed and small businesses."
For this reason, Carrizosa has once again demanded more direct aid for SMEs and has regretted that the Government "makes announcements of millions of euros, but then they do not materialize at all." "From Cs we propose direct aid of € 1,200 for SMEs that have seen their activity interrupted and € 4,000 for those that have been totally suspended so that they can pay the rent and supplies of their premises," he explained and regretted that, "At the moment, the State has only said that owners and tenants help each other, but it is an issue that affects city councils, the Generalitat and the government of Spain."
