MADRID, 17 (EUROPA PRESS)

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, assured this Tuesday that, with the Minimum Vital Income (IMV), the Executive has “set up”, in “record time” and “in a pandemic” a “new Welfare State.

During his speech in the Plenary of the Senate, the Chief Executive acknowledged that the Government must improve in the management of this benefit, but has also requested recognition for his team which, as he pointed out, has implemented measures “in record time “.

In the case of the IMV, he explained, it is a question of aid from which “800,000 Spaniards are already benefiting.”

The president of the Government has thus responded to a parliamentary question made by the senator of Esquerra Republicana (ERC), Mirella Cortés, in which he demanded a greater effort from an Executive that has called itself “the most progressive in history.”
