Although the President of the Government will stand face to face with Santiago Abascal and Ramón Tamames this Tuesday in the parliamentary debate on the motion of no confidence, it is not with either of them that the Government has a special interest in going hand-to-hand. In Moncloa they turn to turning the motion into an opportunity to confront “country models” with the right and they go out in a storm against Alberto Núñez Feijóo for the announced abstention of the PP from the Vox initiative.
Tamames’ speech in the motion of no confidence: “Spain resembles an absorbing autocracy”
“What Mr. Feijóo is going to do in the motion of no confidence is to tie his political future to the extreme right,” the spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, said this Monday at the press conference after the Council of Ministers. In the Government they believe that the confirmed absence of the opposition leader from the parliamentary debate this Tuesday denotes a “lack of courage” to assume first-hand the decision to “approach the extreme right, going from Casado’s ‘no’ to abstention”.
“This motion of censure is the marriage capitulations of both formations, they are shaking hands,” insisted Isabel Rodríguez, who has defined as “revealing” that the first coalition government with the ultra-right (referring to Castilla y León) and the move to abstention in the motion of no confidence come from the hand “of someone who claimed to be from a moderate right.”
At the moment, Moncloa is still striving to keep the Prime Minister’s parliamentary strategy under lock and key during the debate on the motion, although all the sources consulted take two things for granted: that Pedro Sánchez will also reply to Santiago Abascal in his first speech as proposing deputy and that the second vice president and leader of United We Can in the coalition, Yolanda Díaz, will intervene at some point in the session as Pablo Iglesias did in the first motion presented by Vox.
“We will defend the pride of the work carried out so far and the determination because we know that there is still a long way to go,” said the spokeswoman for the Executive regarding the intervention of the President of the Government, which in Pedro Sánchez’s team they describe as a good opportunity to confront models . “Faced with the model carried out by this progressive coalition government is that of the setbacks in rights and freedoms of PP and Vox,” Rodríguez added.
