Pedro Sánchez believes that Alberto Núñez Feijóo’s PP is today closer to the extreme right than under the leadership of Pablo Casado. During an interview this Monday night on Telecinco, the President of the Government has based his reasoning on the position of the popular regarding the motion of censure registered by Vox. “The position of the PP has changed. In Vox’s first motion of no confidence, Pablo Casado opted for ‘no’ and now Alberto Núñez Feijóo announces an abstention. The PP with Feijóo is getting closer to Vox ”, he has concluded.

Sánchez has indicated that, in his opinion, the reason for the position of the main opposition party is that “they do not dare to distance themselves from Vox.” “He knows that he needs it to govern,” said the president, who has shown his “respect” both to the candidate chosen by the extreme right, Ramón Tamames, and to the mere parliamentary instrument.
“I show the utmost respect to Mr. Tamames. We are going to take the motion of no confidence very seriously because we respect Parliament and because it is an opportunity to confront two models of the country: that of a progressive coalition versus that of a right-wing coalition with the extreme right”, he commented.
The president has also made a political reading of the two motions of censure presented by the extreme right during the legislature. “The first one was presented after the pandemic and this one was presented after the war”, he recalled. “In the far-right game scheme, things have not changed, they just want to fish in a troubled river,” he lamented. Sánchez has also highlighted that, in addition to the change in position of the main opposition party regarding the motion of no confidence, the other change regarding Vox’s first motion is that Abascal is not the candidate. “I understand that Abascal does not dare to present himself as a candidate after the first time he was told off,” he said.
During the interview on Telecinco, Sánchez was also asked about the gesture of the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonés, this Thursday during the inauguration of the Mobile World Congress of not greeting King Felipe VI upon his arrival at the event. “A mistake”, replied the president, who has valued the relevance of Mobile worldwide. “The King of Spain also contributes to the institutional support of an event that is an international reference”, he said.
