“Despite the war and its economic consequences, despite the pandemic, despite this destructive opposition that has not put its shoulder to the wheel for a single second in this legislature, Spain is moving forward,” Pedro Sánchez assured this Sunday, during the rally of the PSOE that has carried out in Granada before the Andalusian elections of next June 19. "For Spain to move forward is the success of the Spanish and the great failure of the right and the extreme right", warned the chief executive.
Without making any express mention of Alberto Núñez Feijóo, nor of the return of King Juan Carlos to Spain -who is scheduled to meet with Felipe VI tomorrow at the Zarzuela, before returning to Abu Dhabi-, Sánchez focused his speech on the "social conquests" led by socialist governments in democracy, from Felipe González and José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to himself, despite constant resistance from the right, "now exacerbated by the far right." “Either rights or rights, and rights are defended by the PSOE”, he pointed out.
About four years after the unexpected turn of the script that took him to Moncloa in June 2018, after winning the motion of censure that evicted Mariano Rajoy from power - "and the party convicted of corruption by the Government of Spain" -, Sánchez has once again reminded the right that he is not a squat. Thus, he has put the Popular Party and the extreme right of Vox in the same bag, and has criticized his "destructive opposition". “When you are in the opposition you have to have a lot of patience with the right and the extreme right, because they consider that the power is theirs, that the institutions belong to them, and therefore those of us who go through them, because the citizens elect us, little less that we are squatters, ignoring that the majority of the citizens in Spain vote for us”, he highlighted.
“Four years ago, I promised the citizens to make the Government of Spain an exemplary and more social Government. And today we have an exemplary and more social government, much more social than there was before”, he claimed. "Ask workers, retirees, young people and women," Sánchez stressed after highlighting the impact of his social and economic measures. “That is why again, despite the war and its economic consequences, despite the pandemic, and despite this destructive opposition that never lends its shoulder, today we have a more social and more exemplary government,” he celebrated.
