Vox pressures Mañueco so that Castilla y León takes the Government’s energy saving plan to the Constitutional Court

Vox in Castilla y León wants to take the Royal Decree on energy saving and efficiency measures approved by the Government to the Constitutional Court this Monday. In this way, the vice president of the Junta de Castilla y León, Juan García-Gallardo, has announced his intention to request a meeting with the president of the autonomous Executive, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, to “study an appeal of unconstitutionality” in the face of what has called “new cacicada”.

Energy saving measures, one by one: from the limit to air conditioning and turning off shop windows to teleworking

With this declaration of intent, the far-right formation seeks that the PP in this community position itself at its side “to defend those who work for the prosperity of Castilla y León”; to those who “illuminate their shop windows or air-condition their establishments to make the region a land of hope, well-being and future”. And so by the way, coincide with the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, in dealing with the energy saving measures validated by the Government. García Gallardo and, if they get what the vice president wants, Mañueco, would be on Ayuso’s ‘ship’ to study taking this plan to the Constitutional Court.

“Madrid does not turn off,” tweeted Isabel Díaz Ayuso on Monday after learning of the approval of the measures. This Wednesday, García-Gallardo emulated the president and launched the pressure mechanism to try to overthrow this Royal Decree. In a statement, the vice president of the Board accused the central Executive of “cutting the freedoms and rights of the Spanish” to lead them to “ruin with their climatic fanaticism.”

For the vice president of Castilla y León, the energy saving measures have “an appearance of illegality” and are “ineffective” in solving an energy crisis to which “the socialist Executive itself and its 22 ministries have led us.”

The Vox representative charges Sánchez accusing him that his “political nonsense” has multiplied “by four our dependence on Russian gas” -something that is not entirely accurate since Spain has diversified the import market in several countries and only one 10% depends on Moscow-.

For García-Gallardo, the solution is to “repeal the climate laws that prevent studying the soil and extracting the energy that allows energy sovereignty” and points out that the left goes from “celebrating the blowing up of thermal power plants and the closure of nuclear power plants” to pretend “that we Spaniards put the air conditioning at 27 degrees and turn off the windows at 10:00 p.m.”

In a regional key, the vice president commits to “continue working responsibly” to “eliminate superfluous spending that does not benefit citizens”, pointing to the cut of 20 million in Social Dialogue, which he has called “union beach bars” – ignoring that with his Executive the number of senior positions has skyrocketed and the budget for advisers has increased by 33%-. “There we are going to continue saving”, he has sentenced.
