The President of the Balearics, Jose Ramon Bauza, yesterday announced wide ranging tax cuts but the opposition accused him of pure electioneering.
Palma.—Bauza used what is expected to be the final state of the Balearics debate before next May’s local elections, to unveil his government’s plans for fiscal reforms starting next year.
The President claimed that the combination of regional and state fiscal reforms will increase the money the local population has in its pockets by 250 million euros over the next eight years, however, the latest opinion polls, suggests that the Partido Popular are going to have a fight on their hands next year should they wish to remain in power.
And both the opposition Socialist party and MES accused the President of “pure electioneering”.
He was also attacked for failing to mention and address the educational conflict caused by the government’s trilingual TIL curriculum which has been temporarily suspended pending a final ruling by the Supreme Court in Madrid.
