The acting deputy general of Gipuzkoa, Markel Olano, has been re-elected to the post in the plenary session of investiture held this Friday at the General Meetings of Gipuzkoa, with the votes of PNV and PSE-EE, formations that last Wednesday presented their government agreement.

The plenary session, in which he also presented a candidacy for general deputy Juan Carlos Izagirre, by EH Bildu, has lasted throughout the day.

Olano has bet in his speech on the promotion of the economy, employment and social policies of the historical territory and has announced the creation of 10,000 new jobs in this legislature and an annual investment of 20 million for “strategic” projects covered by the regional management program ‘Etorkizuna Eraikiz’, launched last legislature.

Faced with this, Izagirre has criticized that PNV and PSE-EE offer a “continuist” provincial government, while EH Bildu represents an “alternative model” to build a Gipuzkoa “for everyone”.

The acting provincial deputy for Culture, Youth and Sports of Gipuzkoa, Denis Itxaso, has indicated to EH Bildu that in this new legislature they have “a golden opportunity to definitively cross the Rubicon” and give rise to “a new time, in which the nationalist left recognizes the damage so unjustly caused to many Gipuzkoans and gives way to a proactive and constructive policy “.

In addition, he has defended that the PNV-PSE coalition “is an instrument” for achieving “coexistence among the different.” “It is the overcoming of fronts and topics, and it is an example of the construction of the necessary bridges,” he said.

The PNV spokesperson in the Boards, María Eugenia Agirrezabalaga, has censured the “catastrophic” position of EH Bildu, “the result of his dogmatism”, and has assured that Gipuzkoa has a “progressive and progressive fiscal system”.

The juntera of EH Bildu Estitxu Elduaien has stated that PNV and PSE-EE inherited an economically “healthy” Provincial Council in the last legislature “thanks” to the management of the sovereignist coalition, which offers “an alternative” to the “complacency speeches” of jeltzales and socialists.

For her part, the spokeswoman for Elkarrekin Podemos, Brave maria, has opted to increase the tax burden on companies and to undertake a tax reform that allows a “better redistribution of wealth” based on “consensus”. In addition, he has criticized that in the new structure of the Diputación “equality is relegated to a mere body, while the rest of matters are distributed in directions.”

The PP spokesman, Juan Carlos Cano, has been convinced that “the enemies / adversaries of our territorial self-government are not in Madrid”, but are “Basque centralism and the strategy of concentration of power in Bilbao.”
