Madrid (EFE) announced the presentation of a letter to the Board to avoid this type of behavior.
“Today we are going to present a letter to the Congressional Board so that separatists, who believe they are immune, go unpunished and who are above all else, are also forced to respect the official symbols,” said the spokesperson for Citizens in the Lower House, Inés Arrimadas.
In the same press room where the JxCat spokesperson had previously removed the Spanish flag so that it would not appear on the television signal, leaving only the European Union flag, Arrimadas commented that it should be mandatory to “respect” the official symbols and not “despise them in this way.”
“A country that respects itself obliges to respect official symbols in a press conference if one wants to hold a press conference in Congress,” he added.
Vox calls the withdrawal of the Spanish flag by the JxCat deputy as a “numerito”
Vox spokesman Iván Espinosa de los Monteros has also criticized JxCat’s gesture, describing it as a “little show” prior to the elections by this pro-independence formation after “three and a half years enjoying salary in Congress”. .
“One is free to feel more or less represented by a flag, but the only reason why it is represented by the European flag is because it is Spanish,” he said.
Nogueras explained during his appearance in the press room of the Congress that he has decided to withdraw “a little” the Spanish flag “because it was very close” and the European one “looks very cool”.
“This flag represents me much more,” he said.
For his part, the spokesman for Unidas Podemos, Pablo Echenique, has downplayed this fact by saying that “it is not a novelty that the pro-independence parties have problems with the flag” and that “the ideology of the whole world must be respected”. .
