The negotiations for the investiture of Alberto Núñez Feijóo are causing tensions within the PP of Catalonia and also between the regional leadership and the national leadership of the party, due to the rapprochement with Junts per Catalunya raised by some of the popular leaders.
Until now, the only one who has publicly expressed, on more than one occasion, his rejection of any approach to Carles Puigdemont's party is the president of the PP of Catalonia, Alejandro Fernández, who this Sunday once again questioned the Genoa strategy and has He has come up against some statements by Feijóo himself in the sense that Junts is not his political "rival". The controversy, therefore, has reached the highest point.
"Together, yes, it is my rival", Fernández exclaimed, using capital letters, on his Twitter account, and immediately afterwards added that the pro-independence formation heir to Convergència is "a party whose essential thesis is that Spain is a dictatorship led by a Fascist King", something that, as he recalled, has been evidenced by the refusal of his spokesperson in Congress, Míriam Nogueras, to attend the round of contacts with Felipe VI prior to the investiture.
"Someone tell me what to 'talk' to them about...", the leader of the popular Catalans has defiantly concluded, who has previously staged more than one disagreement with leaders of his party such as Pedro Rollán, Esteban González Pons o Elías Bendodo for his statements about the need to establish a dialogue with the formation of Jordi Turull and Laura Borràs in order to explore a possible abstention in the investiture of Feijóo, which will be voted on at the end of September.
