THE opposition Partido Popular blasted the New Year speech of Balearic President Francesc Antich, claiming the local leader had forgotten the 92'000 people who are without a job in the islands.

Antich, in his speech reported in Thursday's Bulletin, said that the islands were on the road to recovery but the Partido Popular said that his “green shoots of recovery” were nowhere to be seen. The opposition party claimed that the Balearic government had offered few solutions to the economic crisis. “We are in the middle of one of the worst economic slowdowns ever and the fact that there are 92'000 people without a job is a sign that the Balearic government has failed,” the Partido Popular said in a statement.
