The number 24 of Calle Ferraz in Madrid, located just over 450 meters from the national headquarters of the PSOE, has been covered with a huge Christmas greeting that ironizes with the influence of the leader of EH Bildu, Arnaldo Otegi, and the spokesman ERC parliamentarian, Gabriel Rufián, in the Government, by placing them together with the head of the Executive under a motto that reads: The government coalition surely wishes you a happy 2023.
The large canvas, which hides the reform work on the facade of the aforementioned property, bears the signature of Nuevas Generaciones, the youth organization of the PP. And it includes, in addition to the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, the Ministers of Labor and Equality, Yolanda Díaz and Irene Montero, and the spokesman for United We Can in Congress, Pablo Echenique. "They will toast to a weaker and more submissive Spain, that their wishes are not fulfilled," said this organization on social networks.
The president of the youth organization herself, the popular deputy Bea Fanjul, has considered that Spain "with Pedro Sánchez is not for jokes, not even on December 28" or "a little yes." And she has echoed a video that collects the work of placing the banner. "Hopefully 2023 will be the last year that the government coalition congratulates us," she stressed.
Fanjul (31 years old) was elected president of New Generations of the PP in April 2021, replacing the Galician Daniel Gago. The popular youth organization agreed in 2017 to extend the maximum age of its members so that the leaders who are elected to hold any public office after reaching thirty can extend their membership to 34 years.
Shortly after taking office, the Basque deputy vindicated the role of young people in political life, assuring that those of New Generations are "non-conformists". "Young people are already something, we are the ones who show our faces, we are yesterday, today, tomorrow," declared Fanjul, who described his fellow organizations as "the revolution of freedom."
