The PSOE demands that the PP apologize “for lying and putting its electoral interests before the truth”

“It is evident that not even today, yet, have they asked for forgiveness, which is what we demand of them,” Ferraz warned this Monday, when the 20th anniversary of the attacks of March 11, 2004 in Madrid is commemorated, the secretary of the institutional area and large cities of the PSOE, Alfonso Rodríguez Gómez de Celis. “The PSOE asks the Popular Party to apologize to all citizens for lying, for putting electoral and party interests before the truth,” he claimed. “We still wait for that forgiveness today,” he stated.

“The attitude that the PP had and maintained and maintains today is that, without a doubt, it put electoral interests before respect and truth. And he put them first because it is the usual modus operandi of the PP, to bring down whatever has to fall to reach the Government,” the socialist leader stressed. And he wanted to paraphrase in this sense, to explain the strategy of the popular, to former minister Cristóbal Montoro: "Let Spain fall, we will lift it up."

Without a day of truce in the struggle between the PSOE and the PP, which does not take a break even for the anniversary of 11-M. Before, on the contrary. Gómez de Celis recalled that today marks 20 years since the “largest terrorist act in its history”, in which 193 people were murdered by jihadist terrorism. “It is also 20 years of the greatest infamy, the greatest lie of a PP government, of José María Aznar, who put his electoral interest before respect and the truth, playing with the fear of all Spaniards,” he stressed.

"Even today we sadly observe that the PP, through its Faes foundation, continues without asking for forgiveness, continues on the path of infamy and lies," denounced the socialist leader, in reference to the conservative think tank in the orbit of Aznar, who in an article cites “ETA terrorism on up to five occasions.” “It is evident that lies and infamy remain in the core of the PP as a permanent way of doing politics,” stated Gómez de Celis.

The Ferraz leader has criticized “the manipulation that the PP did, trying to make citizens believe that it was ETA”, responsible for the attacks. “It was opportunistic and lacked all ethics. While all of us Spaniards mourned the victims, the PP only thought about how to win elections, by conspiring and lying,” he criticized.

Criticism that has been extended to the current PP, led twenty years after the attacks by Alberto Núñez Feijóo. “Today's PP has been built on that great lie, and continues to act with the same pattern: obtaining the Government, whoever falls, even if those who fall are the citizens themselves, even if those who fall are all Spaniards, as that one said. minister”, has settled.
