| After two years of work stoppage | Bernabé has denied the PSOE before the extra cost of the works because the Ministry has officially responded that they would mean 48% more than the award budget, so it would be about 45 million and not 70 as the PSOE assuresThe senator stresses that "there is no other alternative than to eliminate waste because, otherwise, the PSOE government will be an accomplice of a situation that can generate very serious environmental consequences"The PP will promote a parliamentary offensive to demand that the Government of Spain "not sign the death certificate of the project" and hopes that "the PSRM will face Pedro Sánchez to defend the work that has cost so many years to carry out"Bernabé demands from the Government of Sánchez "a firm commitment to one of the most important environmental problems in Spain" and requests the appearance of the Minister of Ecological Transition to face this new affront to the Region of MurciaManrubia insists that this situation will affect economic activity in the area and "opportunities will be cut short by the inability of the Government of Spain and the submissive attitude of the mayor"The PP senator, Francisco Bernabé, stressed today at a press conference that "the Government of Sánchez is going to bury the future of the Sierra Minera de La Unión and Cartagena due to the refusal to remove contaminated waste from the Bay of Portmán", after learning that the Ministry of Ecological Transition has sent the summary of the alternatives to resume the works and its option is to "confine" the waste instead of removing it.Bernabé has asked the Socialists to stop lying about the extra cost of the works because the Ministry has officially responded to the questions to the Senate that "if the works continue, an increase in the budget of 48% is estimated in relation to the budget of award, so it would be more than 45 million and not 70 as the PSOE assures.
In line, the senator has publicly shown the response of the Ministry in which he indicates that it was the PSOE Government, Teresa Ribera being Secretary of State, who approved and wrote the project, for which he has demanded that the PSOE of the Region " stop lying and blame the PP when the responsibility of the project is the PSOE.
"Bernabé, who has made these statements together with his counterparts Juan María Vázquez and Violante Tomás and the regional deputy, Jesús Cano, has stressed that for the PP "there is no alternative but to remove the waste" and not doing this, to Senator's judgment, "the PSOE Government will be complicit in a situation that can generate serious environmental consequences of an unpredictable magnitude."Given the manifest negligence with the Region by the Government of Sánchez, Bernabé has stressed that the PP will promote a parliamentary offensive to demand that the Government of Spain "not sign the death certificate of one of the most important strategic projects pending execution in the Region of Murcia ".
Faced with this situation, he hopes that "the PSOE stands up to Pedro Sánchez to defend the work that has cost so many years to carry out and it was the PP Government that planned, executed and developed the works, stopped for two years by the current central government ".The senator has demanded from the Executive of Sánchez "a firm commitment to an environmental problem of a state nature" and has requested the appearance in the General Courts of the Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, "to face this new affront of the Government that will do irreparable damage to more than 50,000 people who live in the area ".For the PP, this turn of the Ministry is a "great setback to the region by closing the door to economic development", but, in the words of Bernabé, "the attitude of the social-communist government was to be expected because from the PP we were clear that a Government with Podemos would be the trigger for projects such as the regeneration of Portmán to remain in the disaster drawer and, unfortunately, we have not been wrong.
"For her part, the PP spokesperson in the Union, Sofía Manrubia, has insisted that this situation will affect economic activity in the area and "opportunities will be truncated by the inability of the Government of Spain and the submissive attitude of the mayor who does nothing to the situation.
" Thus, it has influenced that "it is outrageous that the mayor is evaluating a proposal of this depth, since the only way out to this unproductive region is the bay regeneration project because it will attract important investments such as the marina and fishing port, with capacity for 800 mooring points, which would attract employment, direct and indirect ".
