In Getxo, Bizkaia’s third city in terms of population governed by Amaia Aguirre since 2019, Andoni Ortúzar wanted to underline EAJ-PNV’s firm commitment to bringing women to the front lines of institutional responsibility in the CAV’s three historical regions . , “Over the past year we carried out an ‘Antzuñez Araki’ process of active listening, both inside and outside the party. And one thing that came out strongly to us was that we had to strengthen the role of women in the institutions, Had to improve. Bring them to the front line of responsibility. And so we did. Getxo already had a female name for four years: Amaya. And now it’s Bizquia that has a female name: Elixabete. Elixabete Atxanobe Bizquia is going to be the first female deputy general in the history of the U.S., and she’s going to do very well. That famous glass ceiling that used to exist is going to be shattered, and the PNV is going to shatter it because in Bizkaia, good things happen. For, the PNV will have to do them. But we will also do it in Gipuzkoa, with Eider Mendoza as first deputy general, and in Gustiz, with Beatriz Artolzabal as first mayoress,” claimed the Jeltzel leader. Ortúzar closes a political act that is celebrated by the EAJ-PNV in the Plaza de la Estación de las Arenas and in which the aforementioned Aguirre and Atxanobe and the Lehendakari, Inigo Urcullu, have also intervened. The latter said in his speech that the media attention in these early stages of the 28-M campaign “points to Madrid, as if the important thing happened there, when the transcendental decisions, which affect our day-to-day future, are here.” , is taken in Euskadi”.
Ortuzar has taken up the controversy that has arisen in recent times around the presumed Basque origin of paella, drawing a parallel between the different ways of cooking this dish and the different ways of operating an institution. “There can be other types of rice: sweet, brothy, risotto and a hundred other variations, but a paella pan is essential to make a paella”, he has introduced. “Well, in politics, for an institution to run well, you also need a suitable container in which to collect the ingredients needed to make things run well. Be it in the form of paella may: that you have rice, and even percussion, and that you have good fire… But if there is nothing in which rice, percussion and fire mix well, then no Paella will not. Well, in Getxo, in Bizkaia, in Euskadi, the paella pan is called ‘pnv’. Only we have a strong container, ideal for combining the elements necessary for a good government: Good ideas, good people and the fire of commitment to the people, with one region, with one country”, assured the Ebertzell leader. “Only those who are prepared, with experience,” Ortuzár stressed, “can deal with guarantees in the situation experienced in recent years with pandemics, wars, inflation … Maintain stability, people give protection, only those who have demonstrated their ability to do. And PNV, the women and men of PNV have demonstrated their ability, their knowledge for many years. And we have also shown that we know how People have to change and transfer between generations to guarantee that there is no breakdown, so that institutions are always in good hands, in safe and sound hands. Stability, guarantees, strength, experience and generational change: all of these PNV candidature has merits”, he concluded.
The legend, Inigo Urkullu, has highlighted the importance of “defending self-government every day”. “Because our self-government has not been for ever. Took a long time to get it. We must take care of it, protect it and update it. Otherwise, you will be in permanent danger.” Urkullu said that self-governance is “an essential tool for the improvement and development of our public services. Self-governance is not guaranteed. We must say it clearly.” Similarly, Lehendkari assures that he views “with concern” the fact that “in recent years, and even today, the media’s attention has been on Madrid, such as What’s important happened right there. Make no mistake: Transcendental decisions, which affect our day-to-day lives and our future, are taken, above all else, here in Euskady. In the elections to be held on the 28th, what is at stake is the continuation of the model that guarantees well-being and quality of life: the EAJ-PNV model”, he concluded.
On his part, the candidate for Vice-General of Bizkaya, Elixabete Atxanobe, has assured that “entities must provide guarantees, security and offer help to attract investments to Bizkaya; and without investments, no jobs”. is”, later asserting that at EAJ-PNV “we are here for that, to provide stability and confidence to sustain the economic activity of the present and to guarantee new opportunities for the future”. Similarly, Atxanobe stresses the importance of the Metro, which “unites the metropolis and we have to take good care of it”. In this sense, the Jaljale candidate has further stated that “we are going to start the process of refurbishing the entire fleet of trains on Line 1 and 2; with hindsight “.
The most local voice is held by Getxo’s mayor and candidate for re-election, Amaiya Agyirre. “Today we present an innovative and ambitious proposal, which may be the best project of EAJ-PNV for our present and future. A program for the people of Getxo, which offers solutions to the needs of today, Creates a framework of opportunities in this changing reality and of course, with Getxo that looks to the future.
