PS/Azores amendment proposals to the 2023 regional plan, which included the implementation of the emergency social plan and the cancellation of the Nascer Mais program, were rejected by the regional assembly this Thursday.

During the discussion of the Social Emergency Plan, which has a budget of 46.2 million euros, PS’s Carlos Silva said the party was “concerned” by “the economic and social crisis that is affecting regional families and companies.”

Vice President of the Government of the Azores (PSD/CDS-PP/PPM) Artur Lima accused the PS of being “touchy” and “irresponsible” for presenting a proposal that “in good socialist style throws money at problems without criteria”, warning that “nothing is not moving towards a return to power.”

I’m absolutely blown away by this suggestion to change PS. We are facing the largest social budget ever introduced in the Azores by a right-wing government. A conscientious budget, responsibility for helping those who need it most,” said the minister in charge of Social Solidarity.

PSD MP António Vasco Viveiros believes that the plan and budget presented by the regional government “meet the needs of families and companies” and criticized PS for “creating drama”considering the amendment proposal to be a “political manoeuvre”.

PPM/Azores leader Paulo Estevan denounced the PS’s “hypocrisy” as the Socialists voted against the plan as a whole, while CDS-PP’s Rui Martins praised the social nature of the plan and budget for 2023, describing the Socialists as “doom preachers”.

For the PAN, MP Pedro Neves defended that the PS proposals should not have been voted as a bloc in order to avoid a “total misrepresentation” of the plan.

Independent parliamentarian Carlos Furtado said he would vote against all amendment proposals because “The case is too serious to be analyzed in half a dozen hours”referring to the deadline for delivering the initiatives, which ended at 13:00 on Wednesday.

According to documents that Lusa had access to, among the eight proposals to change the PS/Azores plan and budget for 2023 was the elimination of the Nascer Mais program (which supports the 1,500 euros to be allocated in a pharmacy, every child born in municipalities with a greater loss of population) is negotiated between the executive branch and Chega.

With regard to the 46.2 million under the Emergency Plan, PS/Azores has allocated 18.7 million for families, 10 million of which for a “single attribution” of 65 euros per adult and 40 euros per dependent for those with there is a “gross monthly income up to and including 2700.00 euros”, is described in the proposals posted on the website of the Legislative Assembly.
