The term political class is widely used among people who do not like to listen to politicians; unfortunately, the characteristics of a good part of the politicians give meaning to said expression.
From Podem Xàbia we believe that politics is the mechanism that allows us to manage reality and solve conflicts when they arise. That, in short, allows us as a society to organize and progress and if we talk about Politics with a capital letter, this cannot be done without the participation of citizens.
To do this, we must first overcome the existing disaffection. Breaking that image that politicians only address citizens every four years to present them with a nice electoral program that captures their attention and then, their non-compliance is assumed as natural.
This is not the way, and it is something that is no longer about one party or another, but about all of them together. That is why from Podem Xàbia we have promoted a commitment to democratic quality (attached below) with a few simple points that are summarized in that, the people who head the lists and who are part of the government commit to the citizenship that the investments will be related to the political program with which they have been presented and that their execution will be monitored.
A very simple idea. Publicly commit ourselves to the fact that those who form a government will really have as a premise to fulfill their program. The document does not have any partisan overtones, it does not speak of what the characteristics of the program should be. As simple and easy as committing to work to fulfill it.
The PP has signed the commitment; His problem is who he works for and who he is willing to ally with to come to power, with VOX, who did not even want to read the document. He didn't miss us. Ultra-right and democracy do not seem to fit.
Then we have the PSOE that has refused the pact with some excuses that we do not understand. That it is not urgent, that this is already done in all plenary sessions, that they talk to people and explain how the projects are going, that they agree, but that this is not the time, that they really plan to do what is said in the commitment , which they already do.
But, for example, we already have 3 electoral programs with the same promise of the PSOE to implement the tertiary cycle of water purification. We also have Ciudadanos por Jávea who say they are still thinking about it.
And well, we need Compromís. The political force with which we have the most ideological affinity; to which we proposed to go in a coalition and they answered us no, without even giving us the option of meeting and working for unity. Well, like Ciudadanos por Jávea, it is the moment in which Compromís has not even answered us. We don't understand why.
From Podemos simply reiterate that, if we have the support to form part of the Xàbia government, our work will be aimed at fulfilling the political program with which we have presented ourselves through the necessary investment and with the measurement mechanisms that allow accountability to the entire citizenship.
Democratic Quality Commitment
In order to bring citizens closer to political decisions and to improve the democratic quality of Xábia, I sign this document, in which I promise, as head of the list of my formation, that when I enter the government of Xàbia:
- I will publish the program of my government during the second semester of 2023.
- Establishing execution indicators and measurable results for each of the initiatives, actions or proposals of the program.
- External contracts will be aimed at fulfilling some part of this program and this will be stated in the corresponding contracts.
- Each annual budget will have a document that will relate it to the government program.
- I will give regular information on the evolution of the government program, at least once a year; assessing the established indicators and even adding some or modifying them if deemed appropriate, explaining the reasons for the change.
We can Xàbia
