Valladolid (EFE).- The Prime Minister and leader of the PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, has warned this Saturday that the PP and Vox would do in a hypothetical government of Spain what they are already doing in Castilla y León, with the president of Board, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco (PP), and his vice president, Juan García-Gallardo (Vox).
“Whoever wants to know what a hypothetical government of Feijoó and Abascal would do, all they have to do is see what Mañueco and Vox are doing here in Castilla y León,” he summarized in his speech in Valladolid, before some 1,500 people gathered in an organized act by the PSOE to present the socialist candidates for the main mayors of Castilla y León.
With various references to what happened in Castilla y León in the last week, after presenting the vice president of the Board a series of anti-abortion measures that have subsequently been denied by Mañueco, Sánchez has wondered “what problem” the PP and Vox have with the women and why “they insist on perpetuating gender inequality”.
“We are not going to allow it,” cried the President of the Government, who has offered to continue on the path taken to reduce job insecurity and guarantee the purchasing power of pensioners, to achieve a Spain “that competes in cohesion, social justice , in talent and in quality”, compared to a model of the right that bases its growth “in precariousness”.
Sánchez has argued that those of his government are “progressive measures” that go ahead within a coalition Executive (PSOE-Unidas Podemos), while he has ventured what would happen in Spain in the event that, at the end of the year , the PP and Vox could form a coalition.
“Whoever wants to know what a hypothetical government of Feijoo and Abascal would do, all they have to do is see what Mañueco and Vox are doing here in Castilla y León,” Sánchez said, convinced that “it is not the same” for a coalition to govern that another in Spain.
The president has influenced the message to pensioners and has used the calculation, to ensure that if the pension reform approved by the PP had been maintained, retirees would now receive “2.39 euros” more per month, while the changes introduced by the PSOE serve so that this increase reaches “108 euros per month in an average pension”, in what it has considered as a “third extra pay”, adding about 1,300 euros a year.
In this debate on the revaluation of pensions and the sustainability of the system, Sánchez has reproached the opposition for trying to “confront the generations”, with messages that forget that the problems of young people are not Social Security contributions but job insecurity, lack of opportunities and emancipation due to lack of housing.
“We will be doing something right”, the president has slipped, who has recognized that next year there will be a “slowdown” and an economic “slowdown”, but Spain will maintain records that will “double” those of other European powers.
In this sense, he has asked “for just one time” that the PP open to a yes vote next Tuesday, in the Congress of Deputies, for the validation of the anti-crisis decree derived from the war in Ukraine.
Sánchez has defended that the objectives that his Government set three years ago are still valid, to guarantee an inclusive digital transformation, a just ecological transition, social and territorial cohesion and coexistence, because “a country cannot suffer what we suffered in 2017 with that unilateral declaration of independence” in Catalonia.EFE
