Alberto Núñez Feijóo believes that at Vox "they are beginning to have doubts" about the opportunity of the censure motion that will be debated next week in Congress. He said this yesterday in Valencia, under the shadow of the Falla Convent Jerusalem-Mathematic Marzal, one of the most important and which this year talks about defending human rights. "There is a party that is very happy with this, which is the PSOE, because its governing coalition is broken and this is an opportunity for it to pay off" assessed the leader of the PP before pointing out that "and there there is another who is beginning to have doubts about what he has done, and that is Vox". His hypothesis is one of convenience, but it is not wrong. Because the imminence of the municipal and regional elections has contaminated the strategies to the point of making coordination impossible, not only of the majority of the investiture, but not even of the Government partners.
Feijóo, who is essentially the first to be threatened by the motion, raised for the second time as a hostile bid by Vox to the PP, reiterated that "we do not agree with this motion, we will not support it, we will not give it a victory to a President of the Government who is defeated". In other words, Feijóo moves between the increasingly clear evidence that the motion turns Vox into an extravagant party that does very rare things and the resistance to grant President Pedro Sánchez the voice of reason in the midst of nonsense and picturesqueness.
Hours before addressing the media amid the tumult, the draft of the text that Ramón Tamames will read in defense of the no-confidence motion had been leaked. Feijóo, asked if he had read it, denied that he knew it, but downgraded the parliamentary initiative to a simple "Tamames opinion on the situation in Spain". The leader of the PP stated that his party is looking for a change of government "not because the members of Congress will vote for it", as will happen with this motion of censure by Vox which, in any case, has no chance of succeeding , "but for the electorate to say so in the next elections at the end of the year".
While Feijóo refines the strategy between condescending disdain and coincidence in the diagnosis - that the coalition Government, with the support of independence is a disgrace for the country, which is what all the rightists support -, in the on the other hand, the strategies are not fine-tuned. The PSOE's partners in the Executive, the confederal group Unides Podem, have proposed a strategy so formidable that it is not even clear that their parliamentary group will adopt it. The Minister of Social Rights and general secretary of Podemos, Ione Belarra, proposed that in the face of Vox's proverbial masculinity, only female voices would respond to the majority of the investiture. There is nothing more eloquent than Esquerra's response: "It's a great idea, but the spokesperson Gabriel Rufián will speak for our group". Bildu does not have this debate, because its parliamentary spokesperson, Mertixe Aizpurua, is a woman.
In any case, the various attempts to agree a joint strategy between the groups that support the legislature - the so-called "legislature block" - have been a failure, as have the combined strategies between Catalan and Basque independence. In the end, electoral interests weigh more. And the same goes for the Government. The PSOE proposed that, after the president, the three vice-presidents intervene: Nadia Calviño, Yolanda Díaz and Teresa Rivera. In terms of continuity, Unides Podemos did not like the idea very much. Thinking about the summary of the TV news, the reflection is another. There are four days left to think about it.
