Cuca Gamarra, current general secretary of the PP, will be the party’s candidate to preside over the Congress of Deputies. She will be accompanied by Marta González, José Antonio Bermúdez de Castro, Guillermo Mariscal and Carmen Navarro as candidates for the different positions on the Congress Table -two vice-presidencies and two secretaries.
In a meeting with his deputies and senators, Feijóo has called for a “useful, serene and serious policy, which is the one that represents the Spanish people.” The leader of the PP has warned that “there is a risk of real blockade” or “of an even weaker government, made up of 24 parties”, in the event that Pedro Sánchez manages to be invested.
Feijóo has lamented that “Spain does not deserve a president who wants to be president again after losing the elections” nor “be wondering every day how far they can go for a few more months in office.” “Spain deserves a government with a very large constitutional majority, and that the will expressed at the polls is respected,” he stressed.
“If governance is in the hands of a pro-independence minority, it is because of the irresponsibility of Pedro Sánchez”, warned the popular leader, who has made ugly that Sánchez’s objective is “to block the party that won the elections” and has warned that “it will pass whatever happens” this Thursday, when the Congress Table is constituted, “the person in charge is Sánchez, who will have to assume his responsibility before Spain.”
Spokesperson during the last legislature, Cuca Gamarra has proven to be a woman of the party and capable of transferring Feijóo’s objectives to the Cortes. In recent weeks, the popular leader has been in charge of the negotiations for the formation of the Congress Table, a decisive step in the face of a possible electoral advance.
For now, the block on the right has 171 supports, the same as the left. The tiebreaker is in the hands of the only deputy from the Canary Islands Coalition, a party that in recent days has opted for the PNV to preside over the Congress Table, and that has not yet decided her vote. Junts also remains unknown. Carles Puigdemont’s party could even facilitate the presidency of Congress for the PP if he finally abstains. The former fugitive Catalan president has hardened his threats to the PSOE, from whom he has demanded “verifiable facts” before “committing the vote.”
