Bendodo’s significant response to why the PP does not do the same with Vox as the French

The general coordinator of the PP, Elías Bendodo, has left a curious scene this Monday in his first press conference premiering this new position from the national headquarters of the training.

The moment has taken place when a journalist has asked him about the result of the French elections making a parallel with the Spanish political situation.

“The traditional French right, homologous to the PP, has asked not to vote for Le Pen, homologous to Vox, in the second round of the face-to-face elections. And I wanted to know what reflection they make on why this difference with their French colleagues, taking into account that today the first autonomous government is formed here with the extreme right”, said the informant, referring to Castilla y León.

Bendodo has responded between doubts avoiding making even the slightest reference to Vox: “In France… what the candidate has asked for is… that Le Pen not be voted for. Therefore, he is saying that, if you have to vote, that you vote for Macron, which is what our message also does in the PP, which is that the PP prefers that Macron continue to lead the Elysee and therefore asks for the support of the vote French centre-right moderate to the person of Emmanuel Macron”.

For the rest, Bendodo has explained that Feijóo has spoken with the current president of the PP in Madrid, Pío García Escudero, to agree on the celebration of this regional conclave on the dates of May 20 and 21. In any case, as he has specified, a meeting of the regional Board of Directors will be held in the coming days, which will be the one that officially convenes this extraordinary Congress.

Precisely, the celebration of this Congress of the PP in Madrid was one of the tensions that caused the internal war between the current leadership of the party, led by Pablo Casado, and the current president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso.

Now, Feijóo has already agreed, in just one week as the new leader of the PP, to give a date for this PP Congress in Madrid, which will predictably ratify Ayuso as president of the regional party. In fact, the Madrid leader herself has already thanked Feijóo for the “speed” with which this regional conclave has been convened.
