THE Junta de Andalucia will request a €4,906.8 million bailout from the regional settlement fund (FLA) this week.
The concrete amount was decided at the end of September by treasury advisor Carmen Martinez Aguayo.
Andalucia will join Valencia, Cataluna and Murcia in requesting funding from the €18,000 million fund created by the state.
Meanwhile Cataluna has requested €5,000 million, Valencia €3,000 million, and Murcia €300 million.
Sources in the treasury say Andalucia will likely not receive all they are requesting, but believe the figure could reach up to €3,700 and are staying optimistic.
Although it is not scheduled, the request for bailout could come tomorrow (Tuesday), during a government meeting.
