Compromís accepts its alliance with Sumar as good despite the results of the Galician and Basque teams

The Valencian parties - except Vox, which preferred not to speak to the media - took stock this Monday of the elections in the Basque Country. As usual, everyone preferred to see the glass half full.

Compromís has congratulated itself on the deputy achieved in extremis by Sumar and has avoided showing sympathies for the results of the Basque nationalist parties: EH Bildu and PNV, the big winners of the election night. Asked if they fear having opted for a losing horse - in reference to their alliance with Sumar for the general elections and the next European elections -, the parliamentary spokesperson for the Valencian coalition, Joan Baldoví, assured that the agreement with Yolanda Díaz was "very good" because they achieved two deputies in Congress. Furthermore, he added that, if they achieve representation in Europe - Compromís will occupy third place on the European list - the alliance can be considered very fruitful.

Baldoví has ​​admitted that this agreement has not made it possible to resolve historical demands for the Valencian Community such as financing, but he has blamed the two major parties (PSOE and PP) for this, which are the ones that have the capacity to modify the system. "We can feel satisfied" with the work done, indicated the Valencian Ombudsman.

For the PSPV spokesperson, José Muñoz, the results obtained by the PSE "demonstrate that the Government of Spain is solvent and safe." The socialist leader was happy that his training was once again "decisive" for "Euskadi to continue advancing." Muñoz considers that "yesterday it was clearly seen again how the citizens of all of Spain are committed to the policies and Government of Pedro Sánchez as stability" and considers that "the Popular Party is being an irrelevant party in key territories for all of Spain."

The PP ombudsman, Miguel Barrachina, does not see it that way, who uses a calculator to highlight the "worthy result" of his party in the Basque Country which, in addition to absorbing the Ciudadanos vote, has managed to grow. All in all, Barrachina looks to the future and hopes to quadruple the results in Catalonia (again at the expense of Cs) and have a very good result in the Europeans. With a great victory on 9-J, the popular leader believes that the cycle that began in Galicia last February will be completed.
