MORE money for tourism, health and education and less for high ranking civil servants is the price of vital opposition support for the troubled Balearic government.

The left-wing coalition government will today lose its majority when the Majorcan Unionist Party loses its parliamentary party status because it will have less than three MP's following the suspension of Unionist MP Bartomeu Vicens for his alleged role in the Son Oms urban corruption scandal. He will sit out his suspension with the Mixed Party. The Unionists are part of the coalition government but, once Vicens moves to the Mixed Group, the Unionists' parliamentary party will be dissolved and President Francesc Antich's government will be in minority. Due to the current recession, Estaras is prepared to back him through the crisis, but only on her conditions.
