The Juntos pela Povo (JPP) party accused the parties that support the Regional Government, PSD and CDS of refusing to listen to the Competition Authority (AdC) about Madeira's auto inspection centers.
At stake is a parliamentary hearing to the Competition Authority (Adc), requested by the JPP, "with the objective of analyzing the levels of competition in the automotive inspection centers, but which was refused by the PSD and the CDS", said the parliamentary leader, Élvio Sousa.
As they say, those who shouldn't be do not fear because of the question why the CDS and PSD refuse and reject to hear the opinions of a Portuguese regulator ”, he stressed.
JPP intended to hear the Adc on a recommendation that this entity sent to the Legislative Assembly of the Autonomous Region of Madeira, expressing its “entire willingness to contribute to the discussion” regarding the automotive inspection sector, namely the inspection service of the Region.
"The most caricatured lies in the hypocrisy and contradictions taken this week by the Vice President of the Regional Government of Madeira, Pedro Calado, who contradicts the attitude of the majority in Parliament", stating that the Region "is committed to ensuring processes with greater transparency ”, Even asking Adc to act“ quickly and effectively in irregular situations ”.
“Now, what happened a few days before, was of the greatest inconsistency in not allowing Regional democracy to work: the request for collaboration and participation of the Adc with the Assembly, required by JPP, the PSD, with the support of the CDS, prevented the functioning democracy of free opinion and competition itself. The CDS, alongside the PSD, only increased the blocking force so that there is greater democracy in this house, which is the home of all citizens ”, he concluded.
