Santander, June 19 (EFE).- The PP has asked Vox this Monday to facilitate the investiture of María José Sáenz de Buruaga as president of Cantabria in exchange for an agreement like the one they have signed with the PRC, but Vox has insisted that he would only agree to govern in coalition.
The PP asks Vox to draft a document with the “general” issues that it considers “essential” for Cantabria, as the Regionalist Party has done, which will allow Sáenz de Buruaga to become the first president of the autonomous community in exchange, among other things, that those of Santiago Abascal do not enter the Executive.
Of course, this text could not be “a government program”, has pointed out the popular spokesman, Íñigo Fernández, who together with the number 2 of the PP of Cantabria, María José González Revuelta, has met this Monday afternoon with the Vox candidate for the Presidency, Leticia Díaz, and the regional president of the party, Emilio del Valle.
This meeting, which lasts almost an hour, is the second held by both formations after 28M, when the PP obtained 15 deputies in Cantabria -six more than in 2019- and Vox went from two to four parliamentarians.
Emilio del Valle has regretted that the PP does not accept “a coalition government or a stable majority” and has assured that, “in principle, they are only here to form a government that responds to the will” of their voters and puts an end to “the regional-socialist policies.
In addition, it has advanced that they will have to decide whether to abstain or vote against the investiture of the future president of Cantabria.
The PP spokesman has appreciated that Vox does not rule out abstention, which, he added, would allow the PP to enter “in a scenario in which two parties (PRC and Vox) have allowed the investiture and not just one.”
“We wanted to treat the two political formations with the same procedure,” said Íñigo Fernández, while González Revuelta specified that if the PRC or Vox voted in favour, Sáenz de Buruaga would be invested in the first round, although in principle none of the two formations intend to do so.
