The president of Vox, Santiago Abascal, has said this Tuesday that he feels a "little distance" from the ideas and policies of the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, and has warned him that, if necessary, he will not be able to govern with the votes of the PNV and his party.
This has been assured in a massive act on leadership and commitment to Spain, organized at the CEU University, when asked by the moderator, the former leader of the Basque PP María San Gil, if there is a will to forge a joint alternative to change the government .
On this matter, Abascal has been clear: "I cannot answer the question because I still do not know Núñez Feijóo personally (although he has greeted him on occasion, he has clarified), and I have not had the opportunity to speak with him". "I am convinced that we are going to be able to speak normally: I don't know if we are going to be friends; I don't know if we are going to get along, but that is not important; the important thing is to know what he wants to do with Spain", he underlined.
After assuring that he would like to listen to Feijóo "in a 'petit' committee" to find out what his intentions are, he has reiterated that he has an "outstretched hand" to the PP to build an alternative, but not to support a "simple replacement" in the Government and "leave things as they are".
During the act and to questions from the students, the leader of Vox has also warned the leader of the PP that his party will not support a Government of Spain with the votes of the PNV, after recalling that Vox is prohibited in its statutes from agreeing with separatist formations.
In another order of things, Abascal has taken advantage of his speech to attack the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, whom he has called a "psychopath" and a "tyrant", and who he has said is not a leader because "a leader without principles is not a leader.
On Minister Escrivá's proposal to recentralize taxes, he commented that more than centralizing taxes, what needs to be done is to lower them, especially at this time when inflation is skyrocketing. "There is a lot of talk about the extraordinary benefits of electricity companies (...), but there are also extraordinary benefits of the State that is taking advantage of the inflation that is destroying the well-being of families," Abascal ironized.
Finally, he has encouraged young people to mobilize in defense of their future and against "those who condemn the Spanish to ruin, to confrontation, to the division of Spain and the growing deterioration of freedoms".
