We can get the government to accept all its improvement proposals for the 2019 participatory budgets (08/11/2018)

CTSSP made a proposal to purge the errors committed in the previous editions of the Municipal Participatory Budgeting, giving priority to the real participation of neighbors through deliberative assemblies, and supported by a team of social facilitators.

After the last meeting convened by the Municipal Government to reach an agreement with the rest of the municipal groups of the Corporation, on the implementation of the new edition of the Participatory Budgets for the year 2019, and after studying the proposals presented by CTSSP, finally the government accepts to assume all the initiatives of the purple formation.

In May 2016 CTSSP presented a motion to the plenary session, which was approved with the abstention of the PP, where the Municipal Government was urged to "make public its political will to implement the" PARTICIPATORY BUDGETS "in the municipality of Cartagena ", in this way at the beginning of 2017 the" Commission for the Follow-up of Participatory Budgets "was constituted, where not only all the political groups were represented, but also the neighbors through the representatives of the FAVCAC.

Therefore, We can bet on citizen participation since the beginning of the legislature, but has always denounced the lack of operability, the bad management, and the mistakes made by the Government in the processes of the years 2017 and 2018.

In the proposals for improvement for the Participatory Budgets for 2019, Podemos has demanded that the Government firstly design an AUTOREGAMENTO, where all the phases of participation and deliberation are contemplated, to inform and give maximum prominence to the neighbors and neighbors.

Another of the proposals of Podemos that the municipal government has assumed is to prioritize the phases of INFORMATION, DISCLOSURE AND DISCUSSION, since they require more time, and the ability to revitalize the staff of the City Council, to support and accompany the neighbors in the formulation of proposals, the creation of groups and work committees, the development of citizen assemblies, etc.

For that, it requires a specific staff with a profile of "social facilitators", to convey the spirit of this project, which is none other than participation, solidarity between neighbors, and participatory and deliberative democracy.

The Councilor for Citizen Participation, Juan Pedro Torralba, has committed himself to training in studying the way of hiring a team of social facilitators who will accompany the neighbors in this phase of the Participatory Budgeting.

It has also been accepted by the Government, the proposal to increase the budget item dedicated to participatory budgets in 500,000 euros for 2019, being set in principle at 22E500,000 million euros, because the budget has to be increased with the calls, that is, if 2018 were 2,000,000 euros, by 2019 they would correspond to at least 2,500,000 euros, so that it becomes a mobilizer of citizenship.

For We can the "technical viability" of the proposals, is fundamental.

This must be adjusted to reality, and the neighbors must be informed at all times before making the final decision by themselves.

Proposals can not be disqualified once they have already been voted by the neighbors, something that already happened in the last two editions.

And finally, the EQUALITY in the participation of all and all the neighbors of the municipality for CTSSP is fundamental, all have to have the same right at the time of selecting their proposals.

The process can not be converted into a "competition between neighbors", and consensus must be prioritized through the Citizen Assemblies, to consolidate a citizen participation project with the ultimate goal of achieving "the common good".

From Podemos they will demand the fulfillment of each one of the commitments acquired by the Municipal Government with their group, and they will do a follow-up and control task so that the errors of 2017 and 2018 will not be repeated, where as of today there is still conclude projects approved in 2017, such as the Monte de las Casillas, and the La Palma Soccer Field, and 2018, where there are more than 15 projects that have not been undertaken.
