The Decree Law on Urgent Measures in Response to the Energy and Economic Emergency caused by the war in Ukraine will not yet be validated in the next plenary session next week. The text, in force since its approval by the Valencian Government on April 22 after overcoming the deficiencies detected by the Attorney General of the Generalitat, will exhaust the deadlines for its validation in the Autonomous Parliament.
In the Board of Trustees this Tuesday, the text was not placed on the agenda and its vote was left for the next plenary session (May 25 and 26), where yes or yes it will have to be debated since it is the last session before the deadline for its validation set on June 6.
Yesterday the deputy spokeswoman for the PSPV, Carmen Martínez, assured that the delay is due to the fact that "it is not easy to fit" the different points on the agenda, achieving "a balance" between the proposals of each group and complying with the regulations of the Chamber.
However, this star decree of the Consell with measures of all kinds and a good dose of initiatives to facilitate the implementation of renewable energies in the Valencian Community has a particularity. Both Compromís and Unides Podem (which in the Valencian Government gave their approval to the text) are inclined to process it as a bill, which would open the text to a whole series of amendments. A somewhat atypical circumstance coming from the text of an Executive with an absolute majority in the regional chamber.
As La Vanguardia has published, the movements of the partners and the possibility of reopening a text that took many weeks to agree on is not liked at all by the socialist part of the Valencian Government.
Despite the fact that the decree was approved in the plenary session of the Consell, the deputy spokeswoman for the EU, Estefanía Blanes, insisted yesterday that "there are issues that they do not share 100% with." At the same time, she pointed out that the fact that it was processed as a bill would not be "no drama".
Blanes pointed out that most of the discrepancies in his group have to do with measures related to photovoltaic energy.
For her part, the trustee of Compromís, Papi Robles, avoided answering whether her parliamentary group will carry through its desire to request that the text be processed in such a way that it can be amended. Robles assured that his training is waiting for there to be a new trustee in the PSPV to negotiate this option.
Everything points to the fact that whoever is the replacement for Manolo Mata at the head of the socialist group, the new spokesperson will oppose this request, so the groups at the Botànic will have to assess whether they break the unity of action when facing an approved text by his own government.
