The abstention of a member of parliament of Citizens, the now independent Ana Maria Coto, has enabled the socialist Government in Asturias, start the legislature autonomous with the approved budget, a decision which contravened the discretion of the manager of the training orange and that has led to parliament to announce his resignation.
the abstention of Coto has joined the deputy and secretary general of Forum Asturias, Adrian Pumares, who has followed the guidelines of the party, faced with the sector that leads in Francisco Álvarez-Cascos, and which form part of the second deputy of the training, Pedro Leal, who has voted against the bills.
In this way the votes against the opinion of the budget law have been raised to 21 (PP, Vox, we Can and the deputy of the Forum) versus the 22 that joined the PSOE and the United Left, which, together with the two abstentions, has allowed Asturias to avoid an extension in the budget of 2020.
The plenary session in which have approved the accounts has been marked by the turning of Citizens, whose parliamentary group, after weeks of negotiations with the regional Government, had announced that it would be possible that the budget came out ahead as they have incorporated some of their demands.
however, the management company that directs Citizens to the national level imposed its criteria to that of the deputies of regional that, after having initially given the nod to the bills, returned to vote to decide by majority to change its criteria for pass to oppose the Executive's budget socialist after abstaining the last week in the amendments of totality presented by the PP and Vox.
At the conclusion of the plenary session, and visibly excited, Coto, who joined as independent of the candidacy of Citizens headed by the exrector of the University of Oviedo, Juan Vázquez, who also resigned in disagreement with the policy of pacts of the formation of the orange, has announced his resignation to the variance of the 'abrupt' change of opinion of the party.
"I have abstained, because my word is fundamental, and I wanted to maintain consistency with what in our groups, parliamentary we have been talking about in this trading period," he stated to explain his stance that, according to the regional directorate of Citizens, it follows a decision "personal".
After seeing approved its first budget, the president of the Principality, Adrián Barbón, has regretted to see we Can and Citizens "chained" to Vox with his vote against the budget, which reflects that it is 'the extreme right' which marks the way to the political opposition in Asturias.Updated Date: 31 December 2019, 04:00
