Basque Country's Premier Iñigo Urkullu offered opposition parties PSE-EE and PP to reach an "stability agreement" but pointed out the Basque Government won't come to halt because of the blockade carried out by all the opposition parties in the government.
Speaking after the Forum Europa meeting held in Bilbao, the Basque Premier promised to look for an "stability agreement" with opposition parties PSE-EE and PP, as with Bildu urkullu considers that the differences between both parties' economic and social models are insuperable, as with UPyD regarding the Basque self-government powers.
Urkullu added that he will keep on looking for agreements despite the blockade carried out by the opposition and said he accepted "with honesty and frankness" that he had not reached an agreement concerning the 2013 budget bill.
The Basque Government announced on Thursday its decision to withdraw the 2013 budget bill and to operate using the 2012 budget bill considering that the bill was not going to have the necessary support in the parliament.
The withdrawal of the budget bill cancelled a parliamentary session scheduled for Friday in which the bill was likely to be rejected.
The Basque Premier also announced that he will present next June a new plan on peace, human rights and coexistence drafter by the Basque Government, together with a proposal by the Institute of Memory and Coexistence.
