Without any role at the lectern, Javier Lambán has defended in the Regional Committee of the PSOE of Aragon the idea of Spain and socialism that he understands to be one of “minorities” in the party today. For this reason, claiming the “meritless loyalty of freedom”, he has risen up against Sánchez’s submission to the independence movement, exclaiming that for him “Spain is above the PSOE.”
The still socialist Baron of Aragon has given, in his opening speech, a lesson in political height in the face of the situation that Spain is going through. As if he were just getting going, the Aragonese spoke for more than 40 minutes about ETA, the regional electoral disaster of the PSOE, Sánchez’s investiture and the possible governability of Spain.
Javier Lambán has recognized that “against the most famous pollsters in the country” Sánchez achieved a good electoral result, recognizing that “the credit belongs to him.” “Sánchez was the one who achieved a result that surprised Titos and Trojans,” he expressed, thanks to which the “PP and Vox do not reach the absolute majority.” Following the good oratory manual, after the honey, the gall has arrived for his “partner Sánchez”, as he has referred to throughout his speech.
“I think I am in a party that can give its opinion,” he began as an introduction to his analysis of the dilemma of investiture pacts. “For years, I have shown that I am against making agreements with independentists and separatists,” adding that he is “against pardons, the reduction of embezzlement.” Javier Lambán has pointed out that Sánchez “has not yet told anyone what he is going to do with the amnesty”, insisting that he “will be against it”, despite currently representing “a minority” in the PSOE. A minority has argued that he is equally “loyal.”
Parliament: right-wing majority
“Comrade Sánchez has the legitimate and laudable ambition to form a progressive government,” but the former president of Aragón has warned that in parliament “he will not find a progressive majority,” even if he “accepts,” in the words of Javier Lambán, “that Sumar is progressive”, since “the chamber is mostly right-wing and conservative.”
The newly inaugurated senator has stated that there are currently “172 seats from the right” compared to “152 votes from the left”, in addition to “26 votes from the independentistas.”
The breakdown of the votes has forcefully explained that it is because “I will never assimilate the independentistas with the left”, defining the independentistas as “reactionaries”, “who are at the antipodes of what a progressive is.”
For this reason, he has predicted that, despite Sánchez forming a government, “the progressive laws will not be able to come out”, because in addition, among the independentists is Junts, “which due to economic interests” will not agree. Likewise, the socialist has denounced that the pro-independence parties “do not believe in the Constitution, nor in Spain, nor anything that would reinforce cohesion and equality among Spaniards.”
Lamban and ETA bleaching
Regarding EH Bildu, the other possible partner of Sánchez’s investiture, Javier Lambán could not have been more forceful and clear in his position against ETA’s terrorism, very far from the current whitewashing of his party in the general direction, regarding the sentence of 30 years in prison imposed by the National Court on Mikel Carrera Sarobe, alias Ata.
“The conviction of the infamous ETA murderer is excellent news for those of us who loved Manuel Giménez Abad,” he expressed. “This news reconciles us with the rule of law and the health of democracy,” warning that “it is an unavoidable duty” of “all decent parties” to “dedicate themselves eagerly” to making the ETA members “pay in prisons” for their crimes. “It does not fit the memory of the terrorists,” he denounced.
Javier Lambán and the horizon of the PSOE
Javier Lambán has set the horizon of the PSOE party in 2027, “the year of recovery.” In the next elections, the right may “run in one party.” The baron wonders “why” his party “does not aspire to be the only left-wing force in this country.”
The baron has claimed “height of vision” when exposing the lines of what he considers “a real alternative in 2027.” First of all, “we don’t have to go arm in arm with anyone,” aspiring to “represent all of society.” Secondly, we must “take away the centrality of the PP, which can currently challenge us with full legitimacy.”
Likewise, he has expressed his willingness to want to reach “agreements with the PP on core issues” such as the pact on the energy model, health, and regional financing agreements.
Regarding the “tsumani that devastated the PSOE” in the regional elections in May, which he described as a “full-scale disaster”, he pointed out that “the results are not attributable to the candidates”, and that they are due to the fact that Valencia, Andalusia and Aragon, “certain policies are not well understood”, especially in the autonomous community that he governed, due to the “neighborhood with Catalonia”, highlighting that in the national elections, “where the socialist party won the most votes” was, precisely in this autonomous community.
For what he has called for “intelligence, consideration and loyalty”, to defend the interests of the party “if we do not want to reach the battle of 2027 lost before hand”, concluding that for him, “Aragon and Spain, will be far ahead.” above the PSOE, a party in which I have been a member for more than 40 years.
