The president of Iberdrola, Ignacio Galán, does not lose sleep over the next general elections. In fact, the president of the first Spanish electricity company believes that there are no significant differences in the energy program of the PSOE and the Popular Party and has ruled out that a possible electoral victory of the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, on July 23 can modify the course of the energy policy that has marked the Executive of Pedro Sánchez, although Galán has opened the door to renegotiate the nuclear blackout imposed by the current coalition government.

It is Brussels that sets the pace of the ecological transition and, beyond the dialectical battle between political parties, the reality is that national governments have little margin to deviate from the path. , promoted by the electricity company to recognize initiatives or alliances focused on the integration of renewable energies in socioeconomic development and biodiversity conservation in national territory.

Galán has insisted that, today, Spain has a signed and firm protocol to dismantle the national nuclear park, but has pointed out that if the PP proposes to reverse the closure plan of the Sánchez Government, Iberdrola will sit down to negotiate, yes, there will also be an economic tug of war that must go through ensuring a reasonable profitability to the energy owners of the atomic power plants because, He recalled, these have been operating at a loss for some time. The eventual debate on nuclear will therefore answer how much, who and how it is going to be paid.

The advance of the general elections to next July 23 that Sánchez announced a couple of days ago has impacted on the call for the awards promoted by Iberdrola, an appointment in which the acting president of the Junta de Extremadura, Guillermo Fernández Vara, and the PP candidate, María Guardiola , have coincided and evidencing the climate of tension that autonomy lives since last May 28 the PSOE and the PP tied seats and now compete to form a government.

Galán has emphasized the good pace that Extremadura has achieved in the renewable deployment in the region. Fernández Vara, for his part, took advantage of his speech at the awards ceremony to launch a political message by recalling that for the success of the ecological transition "we need a middle class, good salaries and we need industry".

In fact, the organization of the awards decided on the date of the awards with the idea that they would be held at a time of relative political calm. But the turn of Sánchez has truncated this effort and has placed the pools on the elections of July 23 at the center of the act.

On a possible government pact between PP and Vox, the president of Iberdrola has reached out to negotiate with all parties and has been calm, although he has doubted that the party chaired by Santiago Abascal has in its ranks profiles specialized in electricity regulation.

The president of the electricity company has downplayed the importance of the July election and commented that the rulers pass, but the power plants remain as well as Iberdrola's vocation to provide a public service. On the tax on energy revenues, Galán foresees that its withdrawal will not be a priority for a possible Government of Alberto Núñez Feijóo.
