For the second consecutive year, the leader of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, has made his particular assessment of the political course accusing the Government of “hiding” the real death toll from the pandemic and harsh words against the Executive which, according to him, has “terminated” national sovereignty and is characterized by “incompetence” and “lies”. “They have silenced Parliament and insulted the opposition from the BOE,” he said.

Casado has also spoken about two of his mantras: ETA and Venezuela. “We want to know what pacts Sánchez has with the Chavista dictatorship,” has come to assure the head of the opposition, who has said that the government is “hostage to the nationalists.” Likewise, it has ensured that the Executive “pays Bildu” its support to the Budgets with the approach of ETA prisoners to prisons near the Basque Country, as the governments of the PP of José María Aznar and Mariano Rajoy did in the past.
Casado began his speech by acknowledging the “sense of humor” of the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, for having used the slogan “Complying” in his own balance of the political course. “Sounds like a sketch or monologue from Comedy Club “, He has said, because the members of the Executive, according to him, “have not fulfilled anything” and “have not fulfilled everything.”
“The Government of Sánchez is a gold medal in destruction of the national economy, silver in mortality from COVID in relation to the population we have, and bronze in job destruction and, therefore, in creating inequality,” the leader said. of the popular, who has asked the Chief Executive to convene a State of the Nation Debate for September. “We ask for less economic triumphalism, less self-satisfaction and solidarity with the families that are suffering,” he said.
Maintains the blockade of the Judiciary
For Casado, Sánchez “is a president in recession and leads a government in crisis.” “He cannot have one foot in the Constitution and another with the independentistas, because his foot is dislocated. He cannot hide in a purge of ministers because even if he removes part of the crew, the pilot is still him,” he added. In his opinion, the chief executive “has turned the government into an interim, which pays in installments to those who gave it the investiture, ending national sovereignty.”
Casado has proposed “six alternatives” to “the problem of Spain, which is Sánchez. And he has once again insisted that the one who blocks the renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ), paralyzed by the PP for three years, is the Government , in addition to accusing Moncloa of “attacking Justice.” Casado has maintained his demands this Thursday to maintain the blockade, which include vetoing that United We can participate in the negotiation of the reform of said body and demanding a reform of the way of election of its members.
“If Sánchez says that he is going to do what Europe and the Constitution say, perfect, we will renew it today,” said Casado, who has blocked the renewal of the CGPJ since 2018, maintaining in the highest body of judges the conservative majority elected by PP, PSOE and IU during the stage in which the ‘popular’ had an absolute majority.
In addition, after knowing the decision of the investigating judge of Operation Kitchen to bring the former Minister of the Interior, Jorge Fernández Díaz, to trial for the espionage of the former Treasurer of the PP Luis Bárcenas, and to archive the case against the former secretary general of the party, María Dolores of Cospedal, the ex-leader whose support was decisive for Casado to win the primaries three years ago, the PP leader has said that the former “is suspended from PP militancy” and that the decision shows that “Cospedal is innocent.”
