The president of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, will meet tomorrow with the president of the CEOE, Antonio Garamendi, in the first of the meetings he will hold with businessmen and social agents as part of the round of contacts prior to the investiture debate which will be held on September 26 and 27 at the Congress.
Sources from the PP explained yesterday that among the meetings that Feijóo will hold in the face of his investiture, Tuesday's meetings with the secretaries general of UGT, Pepe Álvarez, and of the Workers' Commissions, Unai Sordo, also stand out.
In these meetings, the popular president will outline the general lines of his government program. He will also inform his interlocutors, explain from the PP, of "the obvious risks and the fracture of Spanish society that an amnesty would bring, on the way to a referendum on self-determination, as the pro-independence forces intend".
The PP will take advantage of these meetings to condemn that the current Government of Pedro Sánchez is dedicated "exclusively to an identity debate that leads to nothing, only to clinging to Moncloa", despite the "problems that citizens directly suffer".
In addition, the popular leader will reiterate his criticism of the president of the central government, for being "willing to yield and break the constitutional path that entails the equality of all citizens", according to the aforementioned sources.
After the King nominated Feijóo as candidate on August 22, within the PP the most voted in the general elections of 23-J, the party started looking for support for the investiture. A round of contacts was called with all the political parties represented in Parliament, from which only EH Bildu was excluded, and a second round with the regional presidents, which was thwarted within 24 hours when Feijóo received the refusal of all the representatives except those of the PP.
From the contacts with the parties, in which the PP has made known the State pacts it proposes, no new support has come out either. Tomorrow, the parliamentary spokesperson of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, will meet with her PNB counterpart, Aitor Esteban, an appointment that was postponed due to Esteban's covid positive, but the PNB remains in the negative.
In parallel with the search for support for the investiture, the PP is also mobilizing in a preventive way to prevent that of Pedro Sánchez, which should take place in the weeks following the failure of Feijóo's attempt. The PP leader himself announced yesterday that "of course" he plans to go to the demonstration against the amnesty called in Barcelona by the Catalan Civil Society on October 8.
"If I can and there is no agenda that prevents it, I plan to be there because I share the ideals and they are part of what I have defended and will defend at the investiture", he assured in an interview with La Voz de Galicia. The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has already announced her attendance at the demonstration.
The PP has called its own act against the amnesty for September 24 in Madrid.
