After the refusal of the PSD / CDS majority, on the 21st of May, to hold an urgent debate with the Regional Secretary of Economy, Rui Barreto, “JPP [Together for the People] will not let down”, said Élvio Sousa in the political activity this Monday morning.
The president of the parliamentary group stressed that they are “about to clarify fundamental questions about public passenger transport, in light taxi vehicles and TVDE”, which is the subject of the debate proposed by JPP but which “was rejected by the parliamentary majority”.
“Using the powers of deputies and parliamentary groups, we urge the urgent holding, via the potestative way, of a debate on the same theme” this “after Rui Barreto refused to participate in this debate, indirectly, and because of the first request JPP has not been admitted to the specialized committee on economics, finance and tourism ”.
Élvio Sousa says that this issue deserves to be discussed in debate, with the presence of members of the Government and parliamentary groups with the right to speak.
"There are four questions that were not answered by the Regional Economic Secretary, even when discussing the diploma, in general", stressed the deputy.
“Whoever deliberately does not want to answer is because he has something to hide”, concludes Élvio Sousa, “which is why we are not going to close the debate, solely and exclusively, in the Second Specialized Commission, thus allowing its broad and available discussion for all ”.
