Santa Cruz de Tenerife, July 19 (EFE) .- The law of extraordinary credit of 340 million euros was approved today by the parliamentary groups that, in the case of CC, PP and NC, approved amendments for 63 million without forgetting the requirement to the Government to be diligent in its management and criticism of the PSOE, for which it comes to plug holes.
The law granting extraordinary credit, amounting to 50,888,548.26 euros, and credit supplement for 289,111,451.74 to the General Budgets of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands for 2017, received amendments from all the groups that in general They welcomed the injection of funds that will receive public services.
The Minister of Finance of the Canary Islands Government, Rosa Dávila, explained that this is the largest extraordinary credit law that has ever been presented in the Autonomous Community and should serve to improve the quality of life of the two million inhabitants of the archipelago.
Rosa Dávila acknowledged the joint work and dialogue that the political forces have had, which makes the approval of this norm a doubly historic event in a law that seeks “an investment in the future, a unique opportunity to begin the path of strengthening the welfare state”.
“This law is the beginning of a new stage for the essential public services of the Canary Islands,” added Dávila, who listed the fate of the games, including some 50 million euros for prostheses and health equipment, evening care programs, 10, 2 million for equipment in health centers and other measures to alleviate waiting lists.

The spokesman of the Socialist group Iñaki Lavandera said that the approval of the loan is good news for the Canary Islands, because resources are incorporated into what socialists consider fundamental, the welfare state.
However, the socialist spokesman appreciated, “we like music, we like how it sounds, although the lyrics can be improved” because there are aspects in which there are differences of opinion on the opportunity and political criteria.
He added that in some of his proposals the project reveals that holes are covered with resources that the PSC claimed when it was in the Government.
The popular deputy José Tomás Estalella said that “we have all been reasonably dissatisfied” in the clear goal of improving social services, because you could have avoided allocating amounts to these items if the counselor had “refined the pencil when adjusting budgets “, what has” its maximum and painful expression on the sanitary waiting lists “.
Noemí Santana, spokesperson for Podemos, criticized the regional government’s tactic of “packaging and selling” credit as one of its achievements when what it reveals, he said, is the “confusion” in the Ministry of Finance, which is not known budget policy is applying “and it has us obnubilados”.
The spokesman for New Canaries, Román Rodríguez, warned that now it is up to the Government of the Canary Islands to manage resources efficiently and clearly because they have to necessarily improve the provision of basic services and break the dynamics of walking in the queue in almost everything.
“I ask the government to be diligent and apply to manage these resources quickly and transparently,” reiterated Rodriguez, who with these funds nobody “gives us anything, because we are recovering the mistreatment received.”
For the Canary Nationalist group his spokesman, José Miguel Ruano, said that this law has made progress “we have built among all” and stressed that negotiating and building bridges is not to be captive to anyone, but to be proactive and responsible in matters of vital importance for the development of the Canary Islands.
The deputy of the Gomera Socialist Group Casimiro Curbelo agreed that the regional government should do everything possible because it has tools at its disposal so that these funds materialize in the social fabric of the archipelago.
“Parliament is happy today with the approval of the law, now it takes capacity to do things with agility because the time passes very quickly and the administration stops in August,” said Curbelo, who insisted on asking the regional executive ” a special effort because there are many people who need these resources “and it should end 2017” with the task done “.
In his speech the leader of ASG addressed President Fernando Clavijo and the head of New Canary Islands, Román Rodríguez, to see “what we asked the central government” in the budgets for next year.
