Martínez based his speech on the “surprising” savings of the Basque government in times of pandemic, “a absolutely incomprehensible billionaire relic in the current context”.
He has denounced that “after 24 grueling months of the pandemic, almost all types of companies condemned to bankruptcy, unemployment, poverty and general hardship have discovered that the government of Urkullu has a balance of 1,800 million euros” . According to Martínez, “the spike is greater than the amount of aid this executive has allocated to get the Basque hotel industry out of the hole during the pandemic.”
He went on to list his party’s proposals to deal with the current crisis, starting with “the sectors and people affected by the surge in energy prices who have access to almost instant funds which they can solve the problems they face and that can lead them to ruin”. Agriculture, of the fishing and from transport, “without forgetting the people who, in a caring and altruistic way, welcome people arriving from Ukraine to their homes”.

At the end of his speech, Martínez denounced the behavior of “those who teach us lessons in democracy, in a readiness for dialogue and agreement, with respect for ideas and equal treatment, when they do the opposite every day when the one who proposes and poses is VOX”.
