Upset from RTVE
As stated in a communiqué issued by the News Council of TVE, the "Electoral Law (LOREG) obliges the public broadcasting to that in the televised debate only political parties with parliamentary representation participate and proportionally ", which is why Vox could not attend this meeting.
This was precisely the reason why Sánchez rejected the proposal of the public corporation, alleging that the PSOE did not refuse to speak with forces of all kinds. However from RTVE it does not look like that and "neither understand nor accept"These reasons for" not betting on the public service and pluralism that RTVE represents ".
