The leader of the Popular Party and candidate for the Presidency of the Government, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, assured this Tuesday during his investiture speech that he could have enough votes to be invested as president, but he has indicated that he is not willing to accept the demands of the Catalan independence parties and grant them an amnesty law:
“I have the votes within my reach to be president of the Government, but I do not accept paying that price.”
A phrase that, for the moment, is a lie. To clarify. Feijóo does not govern because he has no support, because he is incapable of bringing Junts and Vox to an agreement. Let’s do the sum: if the PP makes an agreement with Junts, it would not have a majority because Vox would fall out of the equation… and if it makes an agreement with Vox (as it has done) “PNV falls and it would not have a majority either.” So saying that “he is not president because he doesn’t want to” is like someone saying that he doesn’t win the World Cup because he doesn’t want to. A boutade.
Furthermore, the president of the popular party has criticized the acting president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, for putting principles before power and has warned him that “outside the Constitution there is no democracy.”
