The Balearic government has been warned by Spain's deputy prime minister, Minister for the Economy Rodrigo Rato, that it is responsible for ensuring that there are sufficient power supplies this summer. Rato yesterday reminded all of Spain's autonomous communities “they have a democratic and political responsibility to take decisions and face up to power problem.” Questions were raised in parliament yesterday about fears of power cuts this summer and Rato made it clear that, as far as generating power is concerned, Spain does not have any problems. But Rato reminded the power companies that in accordance with a Royal decree approved last year, they are responsible for adequately distributing power, not central government.
