Mañueco claims that the agreement with Vox in Castilla y León “improves the democratic quality”


MadridThe first coalition government between the PP and Vox in the state begins to march the same day that in France calls are made to stop Marine Le Pen in the run-up to the second round of presidential elections. Alfonso Fernández Mañueco will be sworn in this Monday evening as president of Castilla y León thanks to the votes of the far-right party, which will integrate the executive with the vice-presidency and three ministries. In his speech, Mañueco considered that “everyone should be congratulated” on the agreement between the PP and Vox and stressed that it is “beneficial to improve the quality of democracy.” Spain and France today symbolize the face and the cross with respect to the far right.

The PSOE demanded that the Conservative party break with Vox throughout the state if it wanted its abstention to facilitate a solo government of Mañueco. It was an almost impossible condition to meet, so the only alternative for the PP candidate was what was already sniffing months ago and what could happen in the coming months in Andalusia. And in the state? “It is a great hope for millions of Spaniards, who see in this coalition government a possible alternative throughout Spain,” said Vox President Santiago Abascal, who pointed out that this executive “has many enemies and therefore it’s important to defend it. “

Mañueco has already shown his willingness to do so in his speech, and has called for it not to be assessed on the basis of “prejudices and preconceived attacks”. “Let him be judged by his facts and results,” the presidential candidate insisted, after this morning several ministers of the Spanish government have delved into the comparison between the treatment that the far right receives in France and Spain. “I think the PP and its new leader Feijóo need to reflect and see how the democratic right across Europe is lifting democratic cords against the far right,” Moncloa spokeswoman Isabel Rodriguez said in an interview. a Antenna 3.

Speaking to the media prior to the Mañueco investiture debate, Abascal replied to a journalist that he had “no interest in answering” this question. Later, aware that he had missed an opportunity to legitimize Le Pen, he made one Twitter tweet congratulating the National Regrouping candidate and asking for her vote in the run-up to the second round. The leader of Vox in Castilla y León, Juan García Gallardo, has addressed the dilemma and described the health cordon in France as “undemocratic”. For his part, the general coordinator of the PP, Elías Bendodo, commented that his party felt represented by Emmanuel Macron, so he should not veto Le Pen, but simply ask for the support of the current president. of the Elysium.

Thus, the PP has distanced itself from the failure of the Republicans, the party that has historically been the twin of the Spanish right. Cs, which now camouflages its name under the term Liberal Party, also wanted to equate Macron and congratulated him on the victory in the first round of elections. The Socialist Party has been the other traditional party that has emerged unscathed from the elections and, despite the fact that its candidate, Anne Hidalgo, was the star guest at the PSOE congress in Valencia last October, Rodríguez has distanced himself from it. to align with Macron, of whom he has remarked that “it comes from socialism.” In turn, Podemos has avoided directly asking for the vote for the current French president and, as Jean-Luc Mélenchon has done, has called for not supporting Le Pen.

Feijóo does not attend the investiture

The PP has shown with facts that it has no problem agreeing with the far right, but to explain it. He doesn’t brag about it. This Monday, the leader of the party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, chaired the meeting of the steering committee at the headquarters in Genoa and did not go to the Parliament of Castilla y León for the investiture of Mañueco, nor will he move there this afternoon to attend to the vote. At a press conference, Bendodo also did not clarify whether he will attend the inauguration next Tuesday. Feijóo has saved the photograph with Abascal, who has taken iron out of it and has given as good reasons the agenda with which the Galician politician has justified himself.

But Genoa has already had to give the first explanations about the new legislature of Castile and Leon. Mañueco has announced the start of the processing before July 31 of a law of concord that will integrate everything related to historical memory. Therefore, in practice, the current decree will be repealed, a requirement of Vox to form a government that the PP in principle rejected. The initiative aims to be an “element of reconciliation and avoid the use of history to divide the Spaniards,” said Mañueco, in words that Bendodo has subscribed. Another controversial point is the drafting of a law against domestic violence, a term used by the far right and which the PP candidate has assured must be “compatible and complementary” with that of gender violence. “We will not take a step back,” promised Mañueco, who at this time received applause from his bench, but not from Vox.

Ayuso will take over the presidency of the PP in Madrid on May 20 and 21

Gesture by Alberto Núñez Feijóo with Isabel Díaz Ayuso. The new president of the PP has decided to convene the party congress in Madrid on May 20 and 21 and will be the first regional conclave pending. “I thank the president for his speed,” Ayuso tweeted. This was the battle that the president of the Community of Madrid had with the ex-leader of the PP Pablo Casado, refusing to grant all the power of the party to the Spanish capital to Ayuso and to advance the congress as she requested. Thus, the president of Madrid will accede to the leadership of the party one year before the elections.
