The general secretary of Cs points out that 'in our negotiations policies will be more important than chairs'

"Citizens will take the change to many municipalities and regions where we will be decisive throughout Spain." This has been stated by the Secretary General of Citizens (Cs), José Manuel Villegas, during an interview with the program 'Los Desayunos de TVE'.

The general secretary of Cs points out that "in our negotiations policies will be more important than chairs" and stressed that "we are serious people who will form government agreements in which our vision of Spain will be gathered, and we will see who signs them". "The territorial policy of the PSOE is far from our postulates" because "we are not in favor of pardoning politicians who are in a trial" and "we think that the solution in Catalonia is not to deliver more skills" Villegas said.

"We will base our agreements on real policies for citizens" that focus on proposals such as "the protection of families and incentives for the self-employed", explained the Secretary General of Cs. On the City Council of Madrid, the deputy of Cs has stated that "before the 15th we will put on the table a proposal so that Madrid does not continue to be governed by the populists".

"Our message throughout the campaign is that no vote to Cs would serve to make Sánchez president," something that "we are going to fulfill," Villegas warned, adding that "the leadership of the opposition is not requested or claimed, not that it is exercised "and" Albert Rivera is going to do it with proposals and a strict control to the Government ".

Teodoro García asiste a la presentación del libro "Treinta cafés. Las cualidades del liderazgo", de Euprepio Padula

He hopes that among all the parties that believe in Spain, in freedom, equal opportunities and low taxes, "we will get governments that look to the future"

The General Secretary of the Popular Party, Teodoro García Egea, has affirmed that the Popular Party wants to explore the model of Andalusia for all of Spain: "we will sit down with Citizens and VOX, and we will propose that measures must be put in place that make Madrid advance like Andalusia". Remember that the objective is not that two political parties speak but that we manage to articulate an alternative program to the left and to all those governments that have been called for change but that have been the change for the worse.

García Egea trusts that, as the days progress, they will be concretized in what programmatic matters we can agree to govern in Autonomous Communities and City Councils. The change in the Junta de Andalucía marked a point of inlfexión, and that is the proof that a government of coalition of PP and Citizens, and with VOX supporting on specific issues, works: "the government of Juanma Moreno and the Popular Party has managed to renew Canal Sur, maintain public services or increase the contract of professionals in the health sector to cover summer leave. "

The secretary general has assured that he will speak with all those with whom he considers that he can agree and, therefore, he will not talk to either Carmena or Errejón: "my phone is always open for my political opponents, but the government of the Community and the Madrid City Council will not talk. " He also stressed that the people of Madrid deserve that the center-right parties agree to prevent the left from raising taxes.

Madrid, May 30, 2019. – The VOX Parliamentary Group (GPVOX) has presented this Thursday a letter to the Bureau of Congress in which he asks that no salary be paid to the four deputies in custody suspended by the Supreme Court. The objective? Avoid almost 20,000 euros of all Spaniards end up in the hands of those who have attempted against the constitutional order.

Iván Espinosa de los Monteros, speaker of the parliamentary group, was in charge of presenting this document to the Chamber's Registry in an act in which he was accompanied by the General Secretary of the GPVOX, Macarena Olona, and the VOX senator Francisco José Alcaraz, that will present before the Senate the same petition in reference, this time, to the coup-seeking senator Raúl Romeva.

The brief recalls that "the condition of Deputy is attached to a series of rights and parliamentary duties" which include economic rights that, unless particular circumstances, are accrued retroactively from the date of holding the elections (April 28) .

In this sense, and according to the information published on the Intranet of the Congress, these rewards and indemnities would be, from last April 28 until the date of payment (end of May), the following: monthly allowance for deputies -2,981 , 86- and compensation for residence other than Madrid -1,921.20-, which adds a total of 4,903.06 euros for each deputy per month.

Once the suspension of the deputies Oriol Junqueras, Josep Rull, Jordi Sánchez and Jordi Turull is determined, VOX requests that the effects of that suspension be contemplated from April 28 and not from May 21, as the Board indicated after the announcement of the suspension of the prisoners.

It should be noted, in this sense, that the judicial resolution that agreed on the situation of preventive detention of the suspended deputies is much earlier than the date on which they were elected and, therefore, much earlier than that of the aforementioned 21 May. 2019

On the other hand, and already referred to the issue of residence outside Madrid, the brief filed by the GPVOX recalls that the deputies elected Junqueras, Rull, Sánchez and Turull "are temporarily residing in the SOTO DEL REAL Penitentiary Center in Madrid" , so that the compensation of 1,921.20 that corresponds to not reside in Madrid "lacks cause and foundation, and, therefore, in no way proceeds its payment, taking into account that the day of the Constituent Session deputies moved Congress at the expense of the State, in official police vehicles. Thus, the payment of compensation for displacement would mean that the State would assume "a double payment for the same concept".

In addition to requesting that they receive no salary, the Parliamentary Group's letter also claims that the deputies elected prisoners return all the material resources that Congress has given them for the exercise of their parliamentary function "iphone, leather briefcase and any other material elements delivered. "

Carcedo: "Spain has been a pioneer in Europe in including CAR-T medicines in pharmaceutical services"

The acting Minister of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare, María Luisa Carcedo, has highlighted the National Health System (SNS), whose universal coverage was recovered a few months ago and "protects the entire population."

In her speech, at the ceremony celebrating the XXVII anniversary of Diario Médico, the minister stressed that according to the most prestigious international classifications, the SNS "has a very broad coverage in terms of both the contingencies and needs that it covers and the great quality of your attention and result ".

The minister has gone further and explained that the SNS also incorporates access to drugs or therapies of precision or personalized. "Our country has been a pioneer in Europe in planning the use of CAR-T medications and include them in the pharmaceutical provision of the SNS so that its access is equitable for all those who need it, "he insisted.

Carcedo has recognized that the implementation of personalized medicine is a revolution in the approach to serious diseases, as well as important organizational, welfare and economic challenges.

In this regard, he explained, Spain has designed the pharmaco-clinical protocols that contain the criteria for the use of CAR-T in the SNS and the measurement of the clinical variables necessary to determine health outcomes.

The minister also highlighted the creation of the network of centers for the use of CAR-T drugs, whose designation obeys to technical criteria of excellence, experience and safety for the patient.

Regarding the sustainability of the system, Carcedo stressed that Spain is one of the first OECD countries to establish a model of financing by results. "We will pay depending on the success of the therapy," he stressed, while thanking "the joint work with the pharmaceutical industry."

The minister said that "the development and implementation of CAR-T drugs is an example of cohesion and joint care planning based on the needs of the health system." As he insisted, the introduction of this type of therapy recalls the importance of having public and universal health systems: "Very few individuals on the planet could pay for these treatments out of their own pocket".

"The collective effort of all citizens who pay taxes, the generosity and industriousness of professionals and the good management of public administrations make it possible to guarantee universality in access to health in order to prevent socio-economic status from conditioning the services we have access and ultimately our health, "said Carcedo.

During the video conference, Margarita Robles has contacted 24 detachments, including five Navy ships. After receiving the greeting and an update of the missions that each unit deployed in their area, the acting minister spoke briefly with each of the leaders of the contingent, transferring to all of them, and their families, the affection of the Spaniards for the important work done by men and women who are deployed abroad.

The president of VOX and national deputy Santiago Abascal has appeared this afternoon to send a message about the position of his party regarding the formation of future governments: "Spain today is not the same as Spain before," he recalled at first place Abascal, who explained that with VOX in the institutions there is a representation associated with a new political discourse and that, therefore, the people who have voted for VOX have a voice.

"Perplexed" before the demonstrations of some political leaders, Santiago Abascal wanted to convey that "VOX voters have a peculiarity: they have not voted for PP or Citizens". "They have voted -remember- VOX". And it adds, in addition, another "peculiarity: They have voted to VOX in an environment of systematic demonization, of violence, of harassment, of culpabilización by the vote to VOX, with the blackmail of the useful vote". In this sense, and after recalling the difficulties that many citizens have gone through to vote for their training -papel that did not reach the houses, unused cabins … – has underlined the courage and the conscious vote of those who have deposited the VOX ballot in the urns: "They do not admit blackmail like those that we want to submit." "The voters of VOX", added Santiago Abascal, "want representation, voice and respect".

A sustained respect, in addition, in the fact that VOX is "essential and necessary" for there to be an alternative to the left. "It was in Andalusia and, in Madrid City Council, only the emergence of VOX allows an alternative. We are necessary. " "Without VOX there is no alternative to the left," the party's president summarized, who was surprised that Popular Party leaders, such as Alberto Núñez Feijóo, "boast of the fact that VOX is not in Galicia." "They need to make a reflection: that, not being VOX, there is no alternative."

That is why Santiago Abascal, who convened the National Executive Committee of the party on Thursday to assess the strategy to be followed in the face of government formations, explained that "it will not be difficult to dialogue with VOX". "But it will be impossible for VOX to support governments that have not wanted to sit down with us." "In terms of the strength that Spaniards have given us, which is less than that of Citizens and Popular Party, VOX has to be represented in that dialogue," he added. "We will offer flexibility and respect, but if there is no dialogue it will be impossible for there to be political alternatives on the left."

Bluntly, the president of VOX has reminded that nobody can ignore the voters of his party or pretend to submit to "a tragala" according to which the party and its voters are obliged to vote what is put on the table. "We are not afraid at the beginning, to return to the bank of Seville."
