New reprimand from the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, to their barons on account of lower taxes. From La Coruña, after presiding with the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz the XXV German Hispanic Summit, the head of the Executive has asked his party to “empathize with the social majority” to avoid the rise of PP and Vox at the polls.
It was in response to a question from Spanish journalists about whether the two main European Social Democratic leaders thought that disaffection with their policies could cause the conservative parties to come to power, as has happened with Giorgia Meloni in Italy.
The general secretary of the PSOE, who is very upset with the territorial leaders of his party, to the point that last week he called some of them to scold them, warns his formation that it is necessary to “empathize with the social majority of the country , that what he wants is stability and social measures». Precisely that, he points out, “is what the Government of Spain is applying.”
Pedro Sánchez has also celebrated the “stability” that “the third Budgets of the Coalition Government in a legislature in which we have not lacked for anything” give his cabinet. He has thus avoided avoiding controversy with his Podemos partners. Well, he had been asked for an assessment of the criticism launched from the minority partners for how the accounts had been negotiated and especially for the Housing Law and the increase in military spending.
“The growth forecast for 2023 that the Government of Spain has proposed is prudent and is in line with the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission,” Sánchez assured, this Wednesday, after today the European Central Bank dismantled the Executive’s forecasts. The president says that “beyond what they say, the only thing certain is that Spain will continue to grow, which is what is important right now.”
