Pedro Sánchez announces that Joan Subirats will replace Manuel Castells at the head of the Ministry of Universities | Politics

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, made an institutional statement this morning at the Palacio de la Moncloa before the meeting of the Council of Ministers and after knowing the resignation of Manuel Castells as head of Universities. In his statement he thanked Castells for his work in the Government and announced that Joan Subirats will be the new head of the portfolio.

“I appear to report the appointment of the new Minister of Universities after the resignation for health reasons of Manuel Castells whom I thank for his work that has enriched university policy. Castells has developed a policy of support to the University with the increase in scholarships as well of the proposed law. I have valued his thoughtful disposition very much, “said the president.

Sánchez has confirmed that Joan Subirats will replace Manuel Castells at the head of the ministry.

“Closeness, empathy, dialogue and respect must continue to be the Government’s maxim to strengthen democracy and institutions. The Government’s objective is to achieve a fair recovery after the pandemic,” the President of the Government ruled out in his institutional statement.

Declaration prior to the Council of Ministers

The declaration is made shortly before the meeting of the Council of Ministers in which, among other matters, a new aid package for the island of La Palma will be approved and the towns affected by the flooding of the Ebro river will be declared a catastrophic zone.

That of Castells is the first exit within the five ministers of United We Can since Pablo Iglesias left the Executive, in March, and after the remodeling of the cabinet in July that Pedro Sánchez made with the ministers of the PSOE side.

Sánchez insisted this Friday that the best way to face the pandemic is by coordinating measures between member states while he has ruled out requesting a negative PCR for travelers from the European Union who are already vaccinated, as other partners do.

The important thing, Sánchez said from Brussels at the end of the European Council, is that “all decisions are as coordinated as possible” since “the greatest risk could be to split the common market”, thereby ruling out imposing the obligation of a negative PCR for Europeans who want to enter Spain, as other countries such as Portugal or Italy have done.
