The coordinator of Més per Mallorca, Lluís Apesteguia, told this newspaper yesterday that the Socialists had exercised their right to veto his amendment Regional Senator Vicenc Vidal At the Senate plenary session held yesterday to ratify the Science Act, which the Head of Training followed directly from the Senate of Madrid.

Apesteguia explained that because the financial portion of the Balearic Islands Special Regime (REB) is outlawed in the House of Representatives – possibly for the “electoral use” of this legislation in the future, the Coordinator stated – Tries to separately raise the various measures contained in the REB in legislative opportunities that are offered.

For example, the Science Act, which the Senate approved yesterday, but finally without the Més amendment: “It was a really practical measure that would favor economic diversification”the coordinator regretted the proposal Reducing the financial effort of R&D and technological innovation companies on the islands.

The sovereign leader considered that the Socialist Workers Party “Excuse me” by claiming that the nine million will incur an additional cost to running the countrygiven that this amount actually means “a minimum and insignificant budget allocation, which can be fully borne by the government.”

This is not the first time that Mays per Mallorca has suggested this procedure. It was already presented in the general budget for 2022, but was also rejected for the same reason: “We will continue to insist,” Apestgoia said. Yesterday, environmental sovereigns had a parliamentary majority in the Senate, but the exercise of a veto by the Socialist Workers’ Party prevented even a vote on the proposal.
