The Minister of Transport and Secretary of Organization of the PSOE, José Luis Ábalos, has stated this Monday that the Government does not intend to extend the state of alarm in Madrid as of Saturday –when the decree they approved expires–, but it does expect that the President of the Community, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, dowry of other legal support for current mobility restrictions, given the high incidence of the coronavirus pandemic in the region.
This has been assured in the press conference that he has offered at the socialist headquarters of Ferraz after the meeting of the Federal Executive Commission, in which he has indicated that other communities also governed by the PP such as Castilla y León or Galicia are taking measures ” much tougher “without the need for an alarm state.
“That is what we ask Ayuso,” the minister assured, after criticizing that “it is a tremendous contraction” that the Community has tried to “challenge” the measures that were decided by consensus in the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System ( CISNS), and at the same time asked citizens to comply with them.
According to Ábalos, “the only thing the Government wants is for the Community to exercise its powers and give its legal guarantees so that the measures can be respected.”
In addition, he recalled that if the Executive resorted to the approval of the state of alarm it was because the Community of Madrid left the restrictions on mobility that were approved by a majority in that CISNS devoid of judicial support.
