The spokesperson of the PP in Parliament, Toni Costatoday demanded the “immediate resignation” of the Minister of Health, Patricia Gomezafter having heard her explanations about the intervention of her husband and former general director of IbSalut, Julia Fuster, in the oppositions of his daughter, today in his appearance in the Parlament. The councilor has recognized that she knew that Fuster’s daughter was presenting herself to the oppositions and that there was a judicial process for the intervention of her husband in the oppositions.
“Based on the responses you have given us, it has been verified that you knew that Mr. Fuster’s daughter and son-in-law were presenting themselves for the oppositions. We have asked him if he was aware of the process and he has told us that yes, that they had discussed it in conversations, therefore he knew it, ”concluded the popular spokesman.
“We have no other choice but to ask for your immediate resignation as Minister because you were a co-participant and you are just as responsible for these events as Mr. Fuster”, added Costa.
“I will have to ask you questions that I have to confess that it bothers me a lot to have to do them and I understand that they will also bother you, but it is a situation that you assumed when you decided to appoint your former romantic partner, Mr. Juli Fuster, as director of the IbSalut”Costa has warned prior to the formulation of his questions to the Minister of Health.
He has asked her if she was aware that Fuster’s daughter and son-in-law were presenting themselves for oppositions, whose resolutions were signed by Fuster himself, as well as if she urged him to abstain from the process so as not to violate the Code of Ethics.
After listening to the responses of the Minister, the spokesman for the Popular Party has lamented that “their responses are not convincing” or “credible.” “Based on the answers that she has given us, it has been verified that you knew that Mr. Fuster’s daughter and son-in-law were presenting themselves for some oppositions. We have asked him if he knew about the process and he has told us that yes, that they had discussed it in conversations, therefore he knew it”, Costa replied to the Minister of Health.
“Therefore, in the same way that from the first moment we asked for the resignation of Mr Juli Fuster as the only way out, after having waited for his explanations and after having listened to him today, I have no other choice but to ask him for his immediate resignation or to cease as Minister of Health because you were a co-participant in these events and you are as responsible as Mr. Juli Fuster”, concluded the spokesman for the Popular Party.
