On the eve of the attempted investiture of Alberto Núñez Feijóo and 24 hours after the PP demonstration against a hypothetical amnesty law, the acting president of the Government and leader of the PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, has conveyed a political message in the face of criticism from the right who try to delegitimize his policy of pacts to be re-elected and who even talk about the risk of survival of Spanish democracy.
“Spain is a full democracy, with solid institutions that translate into government the popular will expressed by the Spanish people every time there are elections, free and equal in that will expressed at the polls,” he said. During the event to celebrate the European Day of Languages at the Cervantes Institute, Sánchez stressed that “contemporary Spain” which is “open, diverse and plural in its streets and in its languages” will once again “become evident” this week in Congress, in reference to the foreseeable rejection that the PP candidate for president of the Government will obtain from the entire Lower House.
After the PP event this Sunday, and in view of the agreements that are already being negotiated with the Catalan independence groups, the leader of the socialists has also indicated that, in his opinion, “time will end up proving progress and coexistence.” “Instead of the transitory noise of the present, the hope of tomorrow,” he added.
During the event, Federico García Lorca’s poem “Cry to Rome” was read in all the co-official languages, and during his speech the president showed off the country’s linguistic plurality. “It is a unique wealth. It was essential to hear in Congress languages that are part of the great legacy of our country. Protecting a language is also a political decision, just as it is to censor it. There are those who are tempted to caricature this effort,” he criticized.
“Trust in institutions”
During the press conference after the Council of Ministers, the Government spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, has been questioned about the position that the Executive had maintained until now on the need for the former president of the Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, to be held accountable by justice. . “As we have answered it on so many occasions, perhaps there is no need to repeat it,” the minister said.
Isabel Rodríguez took advantage of her intervention to convey “a message of tranquility to the Spanish people.” And he has confirmed that, as soon as Feijóo’s investiture process takes place and is confirmed as failed, it will be the President of the Government himself who will address the citizens to explain the amnesty law and the set of pacts with the parliamentary partners. .
“We convey a message of trust in the institutions. The president will address the Spanish people with absolute transparency. The spirit of the Spanish Constitution will be impregnated in all of his decisions,” he concluded.
