The deputy in Congress Nacho Martín Blanco and the mayor of Castelldefels and president of the PP of Barcelona, Manu Reyes, appeared this Monday at a press conference to assess the composition of the new Government of Pedro Sánchez, which they have warned will be under supervision of a "fugitive from justice" like Carles Puigdemont, whom they also consider a "sinister far-right ultranationalist."
The selection of the 22 members of the new Council of Ministers has been compared to the Christmas draw by Reyes, who has awarded the "jackpot" to Félix Bolaños, who, due to his status as "faithful squire" of Pedro Sánchez in the negotiations For the investiture, he will assume the Justice portfolio in this legislature in addition to the Presidency, which he already held.
At the opposite pole, the "pedrea", the minor prize, has gone to the PSC, which Reyes has accused of losing weight first in Congress, after the resignation of Meritxell Batet, who had presided over the Chamber in the previous legislature. , and now in the Council of Ministers, where the Catalan socialists will only seat Jordi Hereu, the new head of Industry, while Miquel Iceta (Culture) and Raquel Sánchez (Transport) leave.
Despite the good results of the PSC in the general elections, thanks to which, to a large extent, Pedro Sánchez can continue in Moncloa, Salvador Illa's party has been "punished", in the opinion of the Catalan PP: "This is how Pedro pays them Sánchez", stated Reyes, who recalled how the Catalan socialists have been the "tool" to obtain ERC support for the investiture.
For Martín Blanco, the fact that former President Puigdemont has held the key to the investiture has offered a "sad spectacle" that has been reflected in the image of the Junts spokesperson in Congress, Míriam Nogueras, demanding that the President of the Government rectify his words: "Not talking about dialogue but about conflict and not talking about reunion but about negotiation," as the deputy described.
In this sense, Martín Blanco has predicted that the PSOE and Sumar coalition Executive will be "unstable" and will face a "very complicated" legislature from the moment it will be "watched" by Puigdemont, who has become the "original sin." " of a Government that has been reached "assuming things that no democrat should assume."
"It is amoral and almost immoral," exclaimed the number one on the PP list to the Congress for Barcelona, for whom Spanish society "does not deserve the abuses of sanchismo", which will have, he has predicted, "devastating consequences for the country" on the economic, coexistence and social level. "Investors look for stability, and that is not achieved with a Government monitored by a fugitive from justice," he concluded.
Based on this analysis of the political situation, the PP of Barcelona offers its "commitment" to citizens to work to "return the validity of the rule of law, equality and freedom" to Spanish society and put an end to the "contempt "to the Catalan constitutionalists who, from their point of view, impose on Pedro Sánchez their parliamentary partners, "absolutely hostile to the unity of Spain."
