The leader of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, starred in one of the most surprising and disconcerting moments in the constitutive session of Congress on the morning of this Thursday. The PP candidate for the Presidency of the Government made his debut as a deputy in the Lower House and, shortly after sitting down in his seat after arriving at the Hemicycle, he noticed the presence in the first row, the one occupied by the ministers, of Irene Montero and Ione Belarra, those responsible for the disastrous law of only yes is yes, which has caused 117 rapists to take to the streets. Surprising his own and seats, Feijóo’s reaction was to get up from his seat and approach to greet the two Podemite ministers effusively.
This is how this unusual episode happened. Feijóo had placed himself next to Cuca Gamarra, his candidate to preside over the Congress Table – a position that the socialist Francina Armengol will finally occupy – in her seat on the popular bench. While the rest of the elected deputies arrived at the Chamber, Feijóo got up, went downstairs and made room to get to where Irene Montero and Ione Belarra were, whom she greeted as if they were close friends and allies, with two kisses to each other. the leader of Podemos and vice president, who rose to reciprocate the greeting, and a complicit gesture to Irene Montero, the Minister of Equality and designer of the law that she will leave as a legacy of her political stage. The so-called Law for the Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom, whose effects have been the reduction of sentences for 1,155 sexual abusers and the release of 117 of these rapists.
“Unprotection of women”
Alberto Núñez Feijóo seemed to forget, by complicitly approaching the loose violators of Podemos, his hitherto firm position in relation to this disastrous law, which he once said caused “the lack of protection for girls and women.” Feijóo took the lead in modifying that law, providing the support of the PP for the vote to go ahead, given the bitterness of the deputies of United We Can led by Belarra and Montero in maintaining the defective original text. “In Spain we are experiencing the dramatic consequences of a populist decision by our government against judges, experts and common sense,” Feijóo denounced regarding the law of only yes is yes.
However, these precedents did not prevent Feijóo from coming over to greet Montero and Belarra effusively at their seats, just at the moment when the two of them were the only ministers who were inside the Chamber and just before he appeared. in the Chamber the current acting second vice president of the Executive, Yolanda Díaz.
