The mayor of Algeciras, José Ignacio Landaluce, has asked the Government of Pedro Sánchez and Pablo Iglesias “when it is going to shed some light on the darkness that continues to reign around the Brexit process, since the months go by and the uncertainty about what is going to happen is maintained for the thousands of people who have their future pending at this extreme ”.
For the Algecirean councilor “it is incomprehensible that the central Executive continues to let precious time pass that we do not have before taking a step that has not only cross-border workers in suspense, but even Gibraltarians themselves, who this week have expressed their fear of being out of stock of certain products that daily enter the rock from Spain ”.
“I am grateful, as I did at the time, the predisposition shown by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, Arancha González Laya, to meet with the mayors of the region and weigh first-hand and on the ground what for the Campo de Gibraltar means the UK’s exit from the EU, something that becomes even more serious when everything seems to indicate that the final understanding between both parties is far from being reached ”, underlines the first mayor.
The first municipal authority in Algeciras emphasizes that “the Campo de Gibraltar needs solutions, and to make future opportunities out of crisis situations. Taking advantage of Brexit should be essential to boost our development, but in this case, the inaction of the central government can weigh heavily on the nearest future, mortgaging our tomorrow. The thousands of Spanish workers who cross the border every day to earn a living in the British colony need answers, and they need them now ”.
