his is a negative fact, dear Sanna, also because Article 3 “General Directives” allows the Region to better intervene to regulate the type of facilitation, specifying routes, timetables, services.
The argument put forward to support the need to maintain paragraph 2 of article 1 is a pretext, also because it is clear …
Sanna, I do not want to argue with you, I have no intention I just want to bring elements for reflection. Moreover, it does not seem to me that this Regional Council should deliberate on matters of a particular nature, we are here to approve a law that has a general value, and also serves as a guideline with respect to the rules that we will have to approve in implementation of legislative decree number 422. We must already give a precise political sign about the path we want to take, and not leave questions open, indefinite, it is not clear why.
Another question I want to raise is that of whether or not publicly-owned companies are involved. Nobody has raised the issue of the money that the Region spends. If it is true, as you say, that unfair competition is created, because some companies can make cheaper prices, I ask myself: more advantageous for whom? Probably for the Region, which is the one that has to pay. This means that…
VASSALLO (R.C.). Sanna, we establish the criteria and general directives, the Ministry has nothing to do with it. I said that, in this regime, the one who will benefit in terms of savings is the Region that will have the opportunity to find subjects able to guarantee the service for a lower price. Probably, by doing so, we could save some of the billions we have allocated, and reinvest them for the same purposes.
For these reasons, the arguments that have been put forward in support of amendment number 1 do not convince me; on the contrary, I agree with the President of the Commission that the amendment thus formulated would not only give no positive result, but could have the negative effect of making us postpone the law, creating a regulatory vacuum that would further penalize the populations concerned. Thank you.
I would like to speak especially with regard to the proposal made by my colleague Fadda, specifying that, in the meantime, it was intended to find a mediation, certainly not to respond to fundamentalist positions on this aspect. Let me explain the concept straight away, we know that free competition is essentially impeded by two factors, Mr Cogodi; that is, it can be prevented by exclusion and can be prevented by conditioning. We want to overcome both. To prevent conditioning, we, substantially, with this amendment propose to eliminate the accumulation of concessions, since it is a service that among, for the things that my colleague Granara said, can be defined as a service of public interest because it responds to the need for guarantee citizens of fundamental rights, also with regard to the quality of the service we want to ensure. The accumulation of concessions directly affects not only the procedures for entrusting the service, but also the quality of the services themselves. The problem is to find a mediation with respect to the issue of free competition, without discriminating or expressing a judgment on the type of capital, because this judgment is relative, there are in fact public companies that operate in an excellent way and there are private companies that operate in an excellent way. equally excellent.
The problem is not the type of capital but the service that we must render optimal, respecting the citizens’ right to have ensured territorial continuity, eliminating any impediment to free competition, as, with the oral amendment proposed by colleague Fadda, is proposed .
There is no doubt that a heap is a heap, and therefore it should not be quantified. I understand the problem raised by Mr Cogodi, who argues that it is necessary to specify that the accumulation must not exceed the level of the envisaged concession; but we argue that the accumulation, however it is, even lower than that level of facilitation, creates a conditioning in free competition, which we believe must be overcome by totally eliminating the accumulation, regardless of the type of concession, to arrive at a more favorable service to citizens .
