The president of the Partido Popular in Andalucia, Javier Arenas, called last week for a wage freeze for all civil servants in the region, and a reduction of provincial delegates from 110 to 65. His plan to save the Junta de Andalucia €8.5 million a year also included reducing the Junta’s councillors from 15 to 11. He accused the Junta of “sailing in a sea of opulence” at a time when 24 people lost their jobs in Andalucia every day. He said Junta president Manuel Chaves “deserved a gold medal for wasting money”.
