[Podemos asks Ballesta to suspend all non-essential municipal activity (13/01/2021)

The Municipal Group Podemos insists on the seriousness of the situation in the municipality of Murcia, where yesterday about 600 positives were found, and asks the mayor "responsibility and firmness to stop the infections even if he has to make unpopular decisions." Gin s Ruiz Maci has registered on the morning of Wednesday an internal communication addressed to the Mayor requesting the suspension of all non-essential municipal activity, as well as teleworking for officials, limitation in markets to stalls with essential items and suspension of all cultural activities and all face-to-face events.

"Also, from his authority as mayor, ask Murcians for voluntary self-confinement." For this reason, Ruiz Maci also asks the mayor "responsibility and example and that he himself reduce his schedule, limit his movements and avoid acts of brilliance and splendor, because these are not moments for publicity and photos" .

From the Municipal Group Podemos they have shown their concern about the escalation of infections in the municipality of Murcia and demand from the mayor "strong measures to try to stop the transmission." For the spokesman of the purple formation, Gin s Ruiz Maci , "it seems that Ballesta lives with his back to the coronavirus.

Not only has he scheduled a Christmas in style, but despite finding ourselves in the worst moment since the pandemic was declared, it maintains its agenda by endangering the health of municipal workers.

" Therefore, from Podemos, they ask the mayor to take the example of other municipalities, such as Molina de Segura or Archena, "where they have put the health of their neighbors first" and have suspended all non-essential activity in their consistories and asked the population a voluntary self-confinement.

"It is essential to take measures now, even if they are unpopular, we cannot lead a normal life with the level of infections that we are registering.

Therefore, within local powers, Ballesta must be brave and decree certain restrictions to alleviate, to the extent of if possible, transmission in the municipality.

" Ruiz Maci has recalled that Ballesta, since the pandemic was decreed, has put ahead "his agenda, his photos, his videos and his flowers, to the health of Murcians and Murcians, and this has to stop" .

As an example, the group's spokesman has cited an act this Tuesday.

"On a day in which 590 infections were registered in Murcia, Ballesta received the students of a school in the Plenary Hall.

No matter where you look at it, it is a totally irresponsible action.

photo is capable of endangering municipal workers, their advisers, press personnel and the children who attended the event ".

On the other hand, from Podemos they also ask Mayor Jos Ballesta to urge the Regional Government to "also be brave and implement more restrictions to alleviate transmission.

We see how they take measures that do not end with lower the level of contagion.

They close bars, but keep the gambling rooms open.

While hospitals are forced to suspend operations, they do not take more courageous steps for fear of losing popularity.

We need courageous leaders who put health ahead of electoral interests ".
