Four days before the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, tries to be sworn in as president of the Government, next Tuesday and Wednesday, several leaders of his party are insisting on calling the socialist deputies to support Feijóo’s attempt, who is still missing four votes. The PP leader has the votes of his 137 deputies, the 33 of Vox, the UPN seat and another of the Canary Coalition. “I hope that some reconsider their position, because it is worth it (…) I am talking about the different formations that could reconsider their position, among them is the Socialist Parliamentary Group,” the general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, advanced this Thursday to the Parliament program. from TVE. During the morning of this Friday, the president of the Junta de Andalucía and leader of the Andalusian PP, Juan Manuel Moreno, has urged the socialist deputies to “defend with the PSOE minutes” the principles that they defend in private, in which They are against holding a general amnesty and a referendum, as the independentists of ERC and Junts demand to support Pedro Sánchez. The acting Minister of Transport, Raquel Sánchez, has called it a “purely absurd exercise” and “a sign of how desperate they are”, while the acting second vice president, Yolanda Díaz, has spoken of it as a “symptom of desperation” and “ corruption”.
Gamarra assured this Friday, in an interview on Telecinco, that “many socialist voters” regret having voted for the PSOE on July 23 because, as he said, “they lied.” In his opinion, the result would have been different if these voters had known that their vote “was going to be used to amnesty those who put in check” the “constitutional order.”
Among the socialists who have positioned themselves against this measure in recent days is the president of Castilla La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, who yesterday spoke with the leader of the PP in a round with the regional presidents. The conversation occurred after Feijóo accused Pedro Sánchez of committing “electoral fraud” by paving the way for an amnesty. “Whoever is playing that the lack of PP votes, the electoral deficit they have had, will be compensated by PSOE turncoats, they may find them, I’m not saying no, but it won’t be because I look for them or because I protect them” García-Page said last night in an interview on Cadena SER. “Things have to be clean, the Government of Spain, whoever it may be, can never be subjected to tamayazos of any kind,” he added. García-Page assured that Feijóo had not asked for his support so that the PSOE would change its mind. “It wouldn’t be of much use either. I do not decide what the PSOE is going to vote for (…) It is one thing to disagree and another thing that the PP alternative is better,” he added.
Almeida asks to “vote with conscience”
During the morning, the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, joined the PP’s call saying that deputies should do “in conscience” what “best suits the general interest of the nation.” “And I am very clear that what best suits the general interest of the nation is certainly not for Sánchez to be president with an amnesty in favor of Carles Puigdemont,” he stressed.
What affects the most is what happens closest. So you don’t miss anything, subscribe.
Meanwhile, Juan Manuel Moreno has urged the PSOE deputies who “privately defend the principles of the Constitution” to do so “in public with their deputy record,” in reference to Feijóo’s investiture, which will be debated in Congress. on September 26 and 27. The Andalusian leader has denied that he is calling for transfuguismo. “There are many deputies, militants and leaders who privately tell me that it is nonsense to agree with Junts, with Puigdemont, a general amnesty and a referendum. What I tell those people is that they defend those principles with the PSOE minutes.” “The vote is free, like the deputy’s record, and that does not mean that they abandon the PSOE, but that they defend it,” he said after attending an inauguration of a technological hub in Malaga.
Moreno has once again named the discrepancies of historical leaders of the party to ensure that “in Andalusia there is a lot of unrest, because very prominent figures of socialism, Felipe González, Alfonso Guerra, Andalusians, have a lot of ancestry and there are many leaders who do not agree with sanchismo, who consider that the party has been occupied by a one-man movement that is sanchismo.”

The former president of the Community of Madrid Esperanza Aguirre (PP) has assured that she did not contemplate the possibility of any PSOE deputy voting in favor of Feijóo’s investiture, but she has not ruled out that some socialist does not vote for the current president of the Government in functions when it is his turn. “I do not rule out that some PSOE deputy realizes the nonsense and does not vote for Sánchez,” she highlighted in an interview on La2 and Ràdio 4.
Yolanda Díaz has seen “despair” in the calls of the popular people. “What they are doing can only be explained by the desperation of Mr. Feijóo, the failure of Mr. Feijóo and the deep internal crisis that the PP has had since Mr. (Pablo) Casado arrived,” said Díaz in response to questions from the media at a press conference held in Santiago de Compostela, during the European summit The future of work and social dialogue. Furthermore, she has warned that corruption “has many aspects” and that “transfuguismo” is one of them.
The acting Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, has predicted “failure” in the face of “any attempt to undermine the unity of the PSOE” in the investiture of the president of the PP, and later, in that of the socialist leader. He has also asked to “put aside fears” in the face of the independence demands of Catalan and Basque parties, referring to the Constitution since Spain is a “very solid and strong” country. “Any attempt to undermine the unity of the PSOE is an attempt aimed at failure,” he said in statements to the press after the Day of Mercy held in the Aranjuez prison (Madrid). Grande-Marlaska has asked for “calm” to those who question whether the PSOE is willing to approve an amnesty law or negotiate with parties such as EH Bildu, a coalition that includes Sortu and that demands the creation of a Basque republic.
