The Ministry of Finance begins the calendar to address the reform of the financing system

The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, is scheduling meetings with regional presidents to address the financing reform and correct the deficiencies of the current model. The minister has urged the autonomous leaders to put aside the radical positions of each territory and to work to reach a country agreement to improve the financing of the autonomous communities and local entities.

Pressures and demands from the least funded communities

Recently, the presidents of the Valencian Community, Andalusia, Murcia and Castilla-La Mancha expressed their displeasure with regard to the lack of funds from the State. The minister has announced the call for regional leaders to materialize the debt reduction agreed by the PSOE with ERC and has expressed her desire to reform the financing system, seeking the support of the PP.

Claims and political business

In this sense, the voice of Alberto Núñez Feijóo has been raised, being critical of the lack of dialogue by the Government of Pedro Sánchez with the regional presidents. The opposition calls for urgent attention to this issue, while the Valencian socialists insist on the need to forgive the debt to allow financing in the markets.

Postures and commitments

María Jesús Montero has assured that there is no problem in increasing the resources for the autonomous communities and has highlighted the importance of an equitable reallocation of the levels of the Administration to guarantee financial autonomy. The minister’s statements have generated controversy regarding the inclusion of a compensatory mechanism until the reform of the system in the next general State budgets.

Demands and pressure continue

The regional presidents continue to press for adequate funding, stressing the importance of this reform to guarantee health rights, health equity and social services in Spain. The demands of the Valencian Community have opened a debate on the viability of the current system and the need for debt forgiveness to maintain public services at the same level as the rest of the State.
