Palma.—The President of the Balearics, Jose Ramon Bauza and the new Secretary General of the opposition Socialist Party, Francina Armengol, shared some heated exchanges in parliament yesterday as the government came under fire and question over what it is doing to tackle the unemployment crisis.

Armengol had made it clear she was going to take the President to task on Monday and she slammed the government's approach to reviving the local economy and workforce as a “scandal.” She pointed out that since the PP came to power last year, both situations have got worse.
However, Bauza hit back making it clear that he and his government can not resolve the damage the Socialists did to the community in four years “in a matter of just two days.” Social unrest
The Balearic President went further, accusing the Socialists of “causing social unrest and creating tension on the streets.” “We've been working hard from day one,” said Bauza. “But what we can't work are miracles and it's not up to the opposition to make decisions. You had your chances, and we all know the results of the decisions your former government took at both regional and national level,” the President said.

But, Armengol stood her ground.
She retaliated accusing Bauza of “living in a bubble”. “What you and your government have done so far, has not served for anything. All you've down is make the situation worse. “You've given up the fight against unemployment, the figures speak for themselves,” Armengol said.
However, Bauza claimed that if the opposition was “more responsible and proactive we could move forward together in the best interests of the Balearics. We've got difficult decisions to make and we need support to turn this crisis around.”
