Alicante (EFE).- The plenary session of the Consell will approve the appeal against the Tagus Plan at its meeting next week in Orihuela (Alicante), once the Generalitat’s Lawyers have analyzed the decree published this Friday in the Official Gazette of the State (BOE).
This was explained by the Vice President of the Valencian Government, Aitana Más, at the press conference after the plenary session of the Consell, in which there has not been time to approve the presentation of the appeal because “we have risen with the publication” of the decree to review the 12 hydrological plans.
He has affirmed that at the moment the Lawyers are crossing what they already had prepared when the approval of the Tagus Plan was announced with the final text published this Friday in order to put together that appeal.
In any case, he stressed that the Minister of Agriculture, Isaura Navarro, has already signed the agreement to submit the request for appeal to the plenary session of the Consell next week, so that until then the appeal will not be outlined.
The Generalitat will appeal the parts of the Plan that are detrimental to irrigators
The Generalitat Advocacy is studying the Tagus plan published this Friday in the Official State Gazette (BOE) and will appeal “those issues that are harmful to the interests of irrigators” of the Valencian Community, and specifically, of the province of Alicante.
This has been advanced by the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, in an interview in the SER, in which he has specified that they will not appeal the entire decree because there are things with which they agree, such as investments and the mixed control commission and supervision of both the state of the water masses and the investments.
However, they will do so in those matters “that limit the transfer in a discretionary and arbitrary manner”, since, according to the president, “we believe that we are assisted by reason.”
Puig has stated that he has “great respect” for the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, whom he has stressed that she has shown “her worth and her forcefulness in these times in relation to energy.”
He explained that the relationship they maintain is “of loyalty and respect”, but he has pointed out that “each one defends a position at certain times” and what it is about now is “to find solutions”.
