Córdoba, (EFE).- The Minister of Justice, Local Government and Public Administration, José Antonio Nieto, confirmed this Thursday that Andalusia will “accept” a new temporary tax on great fortunes that the government is working for “if it doesn’t interfere with the competition.”

Speaking to reporters following the signing of the PFEA’s co-financing agreement in Cordoba with representatives from eight provincial councils, Nieto explained that “the content of this wealth tax proposal” formulated by the minister is unknown. , from the Treasury, Maria Jesus Montero.

Andalusia will defend the Statute of Autonomy

“The Ministry of Finance has a very wide scope within which it can set new tax rates,” Nieto said. Therefore, if it “is within the purview of the Spanish government, then we will like it more or we will like it less”, but the Board will not have “any opportunity to respond”.

However, if the new tax tribute on large fortunes “invading autonomous competition” the president of the Junta of Andalusia, Juanma Moreno, “has already made it clear that we will not allow one iota to reduce Andalusian self-government.”

For this reason, Nieto warned the president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, and the minister of finance that “if they have this temptation, refuse it”, as Andalusia “will react by defending the Statute of Autonomy”.

“Serene” debate adapted to “reality” at PFEA

On the other hand, Nieto called for a “serene debate” about “the present and the future” Agricultural Employment Promotion Plan (PFEA) for its “adaptation” to the “socio-economic reality of Andalusian municipalities in the 21st century”.

After signing the PFEA co-funding agreement with representatives of eight provincial councils, Nieto recalled that the plan is one of the “great projects that only Andalusia and Extremadura have” and in which “human resources are a priority.” .

“Unfortunately, in many cities in Andalusia, as well as in the hinterland and rural areas, it is very difficult to get a job during the year,” Nieto said. The “only way” is “with the support of all administrations” to “activate an emergency solution” such as PFEA, formerly known as PER, he added.

The councilor staked on “universal loyalty” from “respect for differences” and “listening to the opinion of each of the municipalities” and “political formations”. All this in order to be able to “continue to improve this plan and continue to assert that Andalusia and Extremadura have this feature in a positive sense.”

The best content and the largest amount for 2023-2024

He added that he did not think that “the debate that could arise on this issue is positive” and opted for “dialogue” and “debate in collaboration.” Thus, the ministry will “engage” in ensuring that the plan for 2022/2023 is carried out “in better conditions” and the next one has “greater scope, better content and more flexibility in its execution.”

Finally, it demonstrated Andalusia’s willingness to “increase” the amount allocated to the plan “in the same proportion” as the government would in the event of “making a special contribution to this PFEA”. Mostly in the “materials” section, the cost of which increases due to the influence of inflation. EFE
