Urges the Executive to comply with current legislation and publish the names of those in charge of Health to evaluate the de-escalation proposals of the Autonomous Communities
-The Popular Parliamentary Group has registered this Friday a Proposal not of Law in Congress in which it requires the Government to make public the identities of the experts in charge of the lack of confinement, as announced today by the PP president, Pablo Casado.
Specifically, the GPP urges the Government "to comply with current legislation and to make known as soon as possible the identity of the experts of the Ministry of Health who are evaluating the requests of the Autonomous Communities to pass the phase in the de-escalation of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID -19) and that they advise the Minister of Health to make the final decision on the proposals that he validates and those that he rejects ”.
In the explanatory memorandum of this initiative signed by the spokeswoman Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo, the Deputy Secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, the deputy spokesman of the GPP José Ignacio Echániz and the Health spokesperson of the GPP, Elvira Velasco, the Popular Group recalls that Fernando Simón, director of the Center for the Coordination of Alerts and Emergencies of the Ministry of Health, refused on May 6 at a press conference to specify the names and trajectories of said experts.
"The reality is that the regulations in force in our country," explains the GPP, "obliges the Government to disclose the identity of the experts selected by the Ministry to evaluate the proposals of the Autonomous Communities." "This is the case of Law 33/2011, of October, General Public Health, and Law 19/2013 of Transparency, Access to Public Information and Good Governance," he details.
