The president of the PP in the Valencian Community, Carlos Mazón, has extended political responsibility for the Oltra case - the investigation into the possible cover-up by the Ministry of Equality of the abuse of her ex-husband to a minor - to others investigated apart from the minister already resigned: "It is not consistent that some senior officials investigated leave and others do not."
Apart from the "ethics" of staying in their positions despite their accusation, the leader of the popular has questioned whether it is appropriate for the ongoing judicial investigation. "I hope that there is no member of the Generalitat Valenciana who is a judge and part of things, it is about to be resolved in court if Oltra has been in a matter as serious and delicate as the abuse of a minor," he stressed. .
In particular, he has focused on the fact that “the Director General for Children does not resign and it does not seem that she is going to leave, and we do not know if she is instructing the internal files, nor what is her line of defense of the Ministry in this case , then one should ask if one is being both judge and party».
In any case, in his opinion, "one more lack of coherence is seen in the face of what they have been preaching for a long time", alluding to the protests of the Compromís leaders calling for resignations in the past, when they were in the opposition.
Asked about the statements of Oltra's replacement as the new Minister of Equality and Social Services, Aitana Mas, who has defended the legacy of her predecessor and her management, Mazón has opined that "it draws attention", although it has not yet been officially consummated The relay.
"In any case, if the first thing she has said before becoming vice president is that she supports everything Oltra has done, because she continues to have an imputed general director in her Ministry, the same reasons why Oltra has resigned," she has abounded. .
As for the management that he inherits, "he assumes that reality" in which Mazón appreciates multiple shortcomings in Social Services. Specifically and according to his data, he recalled that the Ministry had promised that the delays in dependency aid would end and there are 14,000 people waiting, and almost 5,000 have died without receiving them. Also, that almost 40% of the centers for the elderly are precarious, out of contract or with serious maintenance problems, that there is also a lack of concerted places. "Or the collapse of the Minimum Vital Income, the Valencian Inclusion Income for two years without updating the Interprofessional Minimum Wage since 2019, which has risen twice," he added.
