The Junta de Andalucia, as one might have expected, is not happy with the debt limits set by the Executive of the Central Government and announced by the Council of Fiscal and Financial Policy (CPFF) at a meeting held on Tuesday.
The Andalucian Minister of Finance and Public Administration, Carmen Martínez Aguayo, abandoned the CPFF meeting to express her disagreement with the limits being imposed. She said the new debt limit would mean that next year’s budget would have to be reduced by €3 billion.
She added that it was a disproportionate request aimed solely at forcing the Junta de Andalucia to make indiscriminate cuts in services such as health and education.
The Junta de Andalucia has lodged an immediate complaint with the Constitutional Court, as it has done on other occasions recently on matters relating to Central Government policies.
