The Table of theMixed Parliamentary Control CommitteeRTVE has decided to postpone due to the health crisis the parliamentary appearances of the sole administrator of RTVE, Rosa Mara Mateo, a decision that has been adopted thanks to the majority of the PSOE and with the votes against the PP.
The Table and the Spokesmen of the aforementioned Commission have met this Friday with the aim of setting the date for Mateo’s appearance, but the PSOE has stood out with the proposal to postpone them, the deputies explained to EfeMacarena Montesinos(PP) andGuillermo Daz(Cs).
The parliamentarians have indicated that the only provisional administrator requested to appear telematically in the occasion of the coronavirus pandemic, since it belongs to a risk group, something that has had the approval of the lawyers of the Upper House.
However, Montesinos, the president of the RTVE Control Commission, pointed out,Antonio Cosculluela, has presented a proposal for the postponement of the appearance at the Bureau meeting until the confinement situation is resolved.
Although the PP has “frontally opposed”, the proposal has come forward thanks to the fact that the PSOE has a majority in the Table (three members versus two from the PP).
Daz considers it “a joke” when today’s meeting was held to set the appearance of Mateo in April to report to the Cortes, an activity to which he is obliged every month, but which was suspended by the coronavirus and that it was going to proceed to recover after the reactivation of the activity in the Senate.
Next Tuesday, the Senate Table will study this Commission decision to give it the go-ahead or reject it.
“If there is the possibility of making the appearance electronically, why do we have to renounce a right that assists us parliamentarians? (…) The PSOE has voted in favor of gagging the Parliament and intends to postpone the Commission sine die , it is a real outrage “, Montesinos has denounced.
From the PP it is denounced that RTVE is experiencing “a democratic anomaly” with manipulation and dependence on the government, being, Montesinos said, “remote-controlled by Pedro Snchez.”
“It is intolerable that no one is responsible for this sectarianism,” concluded the popular deputy.
