Also they Autonomous ‘barons’ of the PP They have agreed to value the King’s speech, highlighting his commitment to the Constitution and moral integrity.

The leader of that party, Santiago Abascal, did congratulate the citizens on Christmas on December 24th on Christmas, especially “those destined abroad, and those who due to illness, or any other reason, they cannot pass it in the company of their own. “
Different opinions between PSOE and United We Can
From the PSOE, the person in charge of evaluating the monarch’s speech has been the president of the party, Cristina Narbona, who has indicated that he has “successful” both in “diagnosing problems” as in the “way of reacting” to them. In a message released by the Socialist Party, the senator also emphasized the monarch’s call to all institutions to be exemplary in the exercise of their functions to “increase the confidence of citizens” in them and has collected the need for “respect”, “dialogue” and the “collaboration” between all public bodies “to reach the major agreements that are required at a time of enormous transformation.”
Yet Podemos has lamented the lack of self-criticism of the monarch. Specifically, the state co-spokesperson of the purple party, Isa Serra, has censured that Felipe VI did not mention in his Christmas message the king emeritus and his “serious corruption scandals” despite having pointed to the need for the “moral and public integrity” of the institutions. In his opinion, in a situation like the one in Spain “It cannot be that the King continues to avoid referring to what happened.”
In this sense, the pro-independence and nationalists have also been critical of the speech. The president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, has crossed out as “empty” the message of Christmas Eve of Felipe VI. “We expected little and he has contributed very little,” he stressed, in an appearance at the Barcelona cemetery of Montjuïc during the annual offering at the tomb of the former President of the Generalitat Francesc Macià, who died on Christmas Day 1933.

Specifically, the King defended on December 24 the need for all institutions comply with and respect the law and that they are “an example of public and moral integrity.” In addition, he claimed responsibility against Covid-19 to “not take steps back” because the risk has not disappeared, while he appealed to politicians to think about citizens and seek “consensus” despite the differences.
