Zapatero under pressure to confirm if more cuts due

Thu 15th Jul 2010

The PP has challenged Spain's Prime Minister to clarify plans to demand even more sacrifices from the citizens of Spain and to carry out further spending cuts.

The spokesperson for the Popular Congress, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, said that tommorrow's debate is "an ideal time" for the chief executive to set budget plans - meaning that it will not be required to postpone drafting the State Budget for the year, so we can then discover if other adjustments are necessary.

However, the leader of the opposition told Zapatero that "it is easier to make the sacrifices of others" when what it has to do is "start from there own yard" by reducing the structure of its government and reorganization of the administration.

According to Sáenz de Santamaría, it is unlikely that the Executive will meditate cutting measures implemented over a hypothesis, based on recent statements by the Congress Socialist spokesman Jose Antonio Alonso, or the vice president Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega.

"Spanish people can not afford that Zapatero says one thing and then does the opposite. People have the right to organize their lives".

One exercise, according to the spokesman of the PP, which involves answering several questions, like why a year ago, Zapatero had promised one thing and ended up doing the opposite, "on economic adjustment, or" why he has not been able to forge political and social agreements", illustrating "parliamentary solitude". "It's required of a president who comes with the worst economic data in the history of democracy,".
