The 'popular' assure that there is a conflict of interest and that Bacigalupo "is going to press" in favor of the Government "in its assault on Indra"
MADRID, 21 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Vice President of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, Nadia Calviño, defended this Wednesday in Congress the "absolute" suitability of Mariano Bacigalupo, husband of Vice President Teresa Ribera, to be a director of the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) and has described as "shame" the doubts and accusations of the PP, which considers that there is a case of conflict of interest.
And it is that in the session of control to the Government in the plenary session of the Congress, the 'popular' deputy Jaime de Olano has indicated that the regulations in Spain of the high position include the members of the CNMV, and that Bacigalupo is the husband of the vice president third and minister for the Ecological Transition, who "makes daily decisions on companies subject to the control of the CNMV".
"What a piece of paper you got, right? Having to ask a question that is so embarrassing...", Calviño began in his response, criticizing that the PP "tries to question the prestige of a person who is absolutely suitable for this and many other positions," and "has proven his worth and is loyally serving" the country.
De Olano has replied that the Executive, in this case, is trying to "convince that there are no conflicts of interest nor is it going to pressure the president of the CNMV to support the dark intentions of the Government in its assault on Indra", where, he has said , "they already control 40% without having launched a takeover bid".
"They arrived promising institutional regeneration and the only thing they have dedicated themselves to is institutional decomposition," he said, "with the sole objective of satisfying Pedro Sánchez's personal interests," listing several examples below.
Among them, he has placed the pardon of the independence leader Oriol Junqueras, the attempt to pardon the former Andalusian president José Antonio Griñán after the sentence of the ERE, the appointment as president of the Post Office of the former chief of staff of Pedro Sánchez or the dismissal of the director of the CNI after the 'Pegasus' espionage scandal.
"Her intervention qualifies herself," the first vice president replied, claiming to have "a list of highly questionable appointments" from the PP, but without going into detail so as "not to enter their game."
In the opinion of the head of Economy, in the PP "they use personal attacks because they cannot attack the management" or explain the reasons for their opposition to any government measure: "Why do they govern for a few?" Calviño asked, lamenting that the main opposition party "does not succeed even once in defending the general interest".
In this speech, Calviño defended that the Government, "if it is characterized by something, it is by appointing people of recognized prestige, highly qualified, enormously dedicated and committed to the well-being of the country", he said, then arousing laughter and shouts in the 'popular' bench.
Ignoring them, the economic vice president has asked the PP "not to use the chamber to cast doubt on people who do not deserve it." "Start telling the truth and voting for what benefits citizens." "They would appreciate having an opposition comparable to the rest of Europe," she concluded.
