When more than 4,000 government lottery shops and about 12,000 jobs are in danger

Spanish Popular Party against the privatization of LAE

(Spain).- The Popular Party will ask the appearance of the second VP and minister of Finance, Elena Salgado, before the Congress of Deputies to explain if the government wants to privatize the state Lottery and Gaming (LAE), after she explained last week that the gaming draft bill will open the door to eventual private participation in LAE share capital.


peaking to Europe Press, PP deputy spokeswoman at the Congress of Deputies, Fatima Banez, said that it would be good for economic talk as the vice president clearly explained in the Parliament if they want to privatize LAE.

According to Banez, the government tried to privatize LAE in the Budgets of 2010 and now it intends the same for the 2011 Budget, when more than 4,000 government lottery shops and about 12,000 jobs are in danger.

"We want to explain if they used a euphemistic way to give an intermediate step towards privatization," the spokeswoman has stated.
