“Write about the women’s soccer team that is less uncertain.” The recommendation came this afternoon from one of the most important members of the PSOE leadership who was aware of the multiple conversations underway to resolve, this Thursday, the enigma of the formation of the Congress Table. In the PSOE, Sumar and his foreseeable partners, the “conviction” thus persisted that the vote this Thursday of that decisive governing body of the Lower House “will turn out well” for their interests and will mark the fate of the XV legislature, diffused before begin. An unresolved parliamentary hieroglyph until the minutes before the start of the session, and which depends on the tie-breaking vote between the progressive and conservative block of 171 votes that can decide, upon entering the chamber, the nationalist deputy of the Canary Islands Coalition or at least two of the seven Catalan separatists from Junts.
The JxCAT executive meets electronically at dawn this Thursday to decide their vote two hours before the start of the plenary session that must constitute the Congress Table at 10:00 a.m. and give the pistol shot to the tangled new legislature. In the hours before, this Wednesday, those closest to its leader, Carles Puigdemont, who fled in Brussels, issued very negative alarm signals towards the PSOE and its claim to have a president of the Socialist Chamber, Francina Armengol, and maintained your highest demands. These were the positions towards the end of the day of the different parties with parliamentary representation.
PSOE. Ministers, people from the team in La Moncloa of the PSOE leader, Pedro Sánchez, and members of the leadership of his parliamentary group predicted that the vote in favor of Armengol and the progressive control of the governing body of the Chamber would go “well” and They were calm and optimistic, without providing data or incontestable arguments.
In the PSOE, in addition, they added that they were working with discretion in all the scenarios and speaking with all the parties, except with the PP and Vox. The most complicated, but possible, options are actually two: the PSOE and its theoretical government and parliamentary partners (ERC, EH Bildu, PNV and BNG) have 171 seats and to win the vote they should add the affirmative vote of Junts deputies or that of Cristina Valido, from the Canary Islands Coalition (CC).
What affects the most is what happens closer. To not miss anything, subscribe.
TogetherxCAT. The greatest media focus and the strongest pressure has been placed on Carles Puigdemont’s party. Spokesmen for groups normally allied with the PSOE and Sumar, essential for the formation of the new progressive coalition and with good relations with the Catalan separatists, also predicted that the Table of Congress will fall on their side this Thursday and even dared to anticipate that there will be a a more global pact for the investiture of Sánchez with the support of Junts and Puigdemont: “Otherwise it would be suicide for Junts and enormous irresponsibility.” In the environment of Laura Borrás, former president of the Parliament and visible head of the hard line of Junts, it was remembered that when she was spokesperson in Congress at the beginning of the previous legislature, she had already voted twice against the investiture of Sánchez.
Canarian Coalition. The CC executive is recognized in a state of permanent meeting, although no specific appointment is called prior to the key vote this Thursday, which will be resolved and communicated in the minutes before. Among other reasons, because the Canarian president, Fernando Clavijo, and his team, have been concentrated for hours and at the command post of the fire declared in La Candelaria, Tenerife. But Clavijo has reaffirmed in the last few hours his proposal to unblock this blockade with his initiative for both the PSOE and the PP to offer the PNV the presidency or vice-presidency of Congress to demonstrate that they believe a third way of a Spain with a constitutional nationalism. CC is talking with PSOE and PP. The Socialists do not welcome this solution, which would complicate their relations with other allies such as ERC or EH Bildu. The PP pleads for Cuca Gamarra for the Presidency of Congress, but it could cede another of the eight posts in dispute in that body, four vice-presidencies or four secretariats, to the PNV without excessive problems.
PNV. The PNV has been represented in several legislatures at the Congress Table and now it does not reject that idea, although it does not excite it either. The PSOE starts with the fact that the five Basque nationalist deputies will endorse their candidate for president, but the PNV officially and publicly reserves that position until the vote this Thursday. What the PNV will not do is vote for the PP candidate for that position if it is accompanied by the 31 ultra votes of Vox. The leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, and his new parliamentary spokesperson, Pepa Millán, reaffirmed in Congress in a clear notice to Feijóo’s PP, that their votes will never be “in an equation” in which nothing is contemplated, neither with PNV nor with Together.
pp. The popular leader, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, reiterated this Wednesday before his parliamentarians that he should be the candidate for head of government that King Felipe VI proposes for having won the 23-J elections; and that Gamarra is the president of Congress, despite acknowledging in the same intervention that it is not yet that she does not have 176 votes but even 100% of the support of the only CC deputy to break the current tie between the two blocks at 171 and reach 172. Feijóo said in his speech that “he still lacks four or five deputies.”
