MADRID, 21 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Minister of Finance and Public Function, María Jesús Montero, has urged the Popular Party to publish the remuneration that certain leaders of the party "allegedly" receive at the expense of the party.
Can you commit here to publish the salaries that leaders of your party may be receiving by the Popular Party? What are they afraid of?", the minister asked the PP deputy, Mario Garcés Sanagustín, during the control session of the Government in the Lower House.
This week, the PSOE had already suggested to the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, that he set an "example" and make a voluntary update of his declaration of assets, in order to clarify whether the PP hides part of his salary.
Montero has also charged against the Popular Party's fiscal model, which goes through "defending" the interests of electricity companies, oil companies, banks and large estates.
Thus, the head of the Treasury has criticized that, while voting against extraordinary taxes on energy and the financial sector, they eliminate taxes aimed at large fortunes, as has recently been announced in Andalusia with the Wealth Tax.
Faced with this, the PP deputy, Mario Garcés Sanagustín, has accused the Government of "dismantling the welfare state to generate the welfare of his own state, that of each of his ministers." The PP has offered the Executive to lower the VAT on the shopping basket of all Spaniards.
But the minister has responded by listing a series of basic products --electricity, gasoline, gas-- for which, as she recalled, the PP raised VAT when he governed.
