Sánchez will appear in Congress to talk about Palestine and the 'Koldo case'

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, will appear in the Congress of Deputies next week, specifically on Wednesday, May 22, to give explanations about the professional activities of his wife, Begoña Gómez, who the PP has placed under suspicion in relation with the alleged corruption plot of the Koldo case that affects the PSOE.

The appearance will take place at his own request, as highlighted in the Moncloa, to inform Congress of the last meeting of the European Council, the negotiations on Gibraltar, and also his contacts with different international leaders to recognize Palestine as a State. It is possible, although Moncloa avoids confirming it for now, that the Council of Ministers the day before, on May 21, approves this recognition of the Palestinian State.

It was the socialist spokesperson, Patxi López, after the Board of Spokespersons, who set a date for these appearances by Sánchez, which will be resolved cumulatively in a single session.

Sánchez will respond in this way in this session to a request from the PP regarding "the conflict of interest" that, in the opinion of this party, affects the PSOE and the "environment of the President of the Government." “Lies and hoaxes have been published non-stop, and it is time to stop it,” they justified in the Moncloa.

The announcement comes after the Popular Party announced two days ago that it planned to increase the number of appearances in the Senate's Koldo commission with the intention of summoning the President of the Government himself and his wife.

In recent weeks, this commission has heard various speakers, some of them the main protagonists of the case, such as Koldo García himself or former minister José Luís Ábalos, without any relevant information for the case having emerged for the moment.
