Alberto Núñez Feijóo met the PP management committee at the Genoa headquarters on Tuesday to take stock of a political course that the popular began with Pablo Casado as president and ended with the Galician as the new leader.
The leader of the opposition celebrated that this renewal has lifted the party to the top of the voting intention polls, but he instructed his own before a Pedro Sánchez who, he warned, "will use all the resources of the State at his disposal to stop the change".
“They are not going to make it easy for us. They will raise the tone. They will insult. They will dedicate the final stretch of the legislature to using whatever resources they have at hand and recovering all the great successes they have in their repertoire. But it will be impossible for them to recover the lost initiative, since Spain no longer believes its Prime Minister", he predicted in a speech that, despite the greater softness in the forms, had certain similarities with that not so distant past of the PP that he headed Married.
Immediately afterwards, the opposition leader described the Executive of PSOE and United We Can as "the most irresponsible possible" and harangued his co-religionists to "form a different alternative."
The guideline set by Genoa goes through distancing itself as much as possible from the Prime Minister and that is why Feijóo promised not to perpetuate the confirmation of the ERE sentence as a throwing weapon to discredit the Socialists, “although this party has done it on previous occasions ” against his with “less serious sentences”. However, yesterday, as an exception to his own rule, he did not hesitate to label the case as the "greatest corruption in democratic history."
Satisfied with the Supreme Court's verdict, Feijóo understands that "justice has passed sentence and so have the ballot boxes" – in reference to the recent Andalusian elections – and summoned "the PSOE to make decisions and purge responsibilities in its ranks."
For his part, the Galician called on his teammates to redouble "the commitment to honesty." A quality that "most of the PSOE positions possess", he pointed out to delve into his proposal for fair play in judicial matters.
Although, minutes later, PP sources made it ugly that Pilar Alegría, Minister of Transport and recently appointed new spokesperson for the PSOE, left La Moncloa in the middle of a meeting of the Council of Ministers to give a press conference in Ferraz in which, In addition to qualifying as honest and honest the two former presidents of the PSOE to whom the Supreme Court attributes crimes of corruption, criticized Feijóo. The PSOE opposes the alternative and does so on a day when, rather than attacking, they should apologize," they stressed from Genoa.
All in all, the PP faces the summer break with optimism as an unfailing state of mind. They see the change “that is chewed” in the street as irreversible and they attribute the strength of the citizenry to the fact that Spain continues to stand up having to face this crisis with “socialists, sanchistas, yolandistas, Pabloistas, anti-capitalists, Europeanists and anti-Europeanists. And all this seasoned with nationalists, sovereignists, anti-system and Bildu”.
"This drift was sung," said Feijóo, who warned that "when a government is cooked like a soufflé, it ends up deflating."
