The secretary general of the Popular Party, Teodoro García Egea, today accused the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, of negotiating “with the health of the Spanish to maintain the health of his government.”
In a virtual meeting with the counselor of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior and spokesman for the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo, García Egea has argued that “it is evident that at this time there are parties busy solving people’s problems and others their problems” , and has described the agreement of the PSOE with Bildu to repeal the 2012 labor reform as “unfortunate spectacle”.
“I predicted that he would deceive his partners, but he had not seen until now a disavowal of his own spokesman,” said García Egea, who noted that the PP has asked the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces that municipalities can freely use their surplus, “and that politics is not done with the needs of the people,” recalling that municipalities such as Madrid or Malaga are not allowed to use the money they have in their coffers.
García Egea has assured that the central government “has been right when it has followed the measures that the PP has proposed,” such as “when we asked for the masks to become mandatory,” he said, “and from many administrations the masks and protection equipment”.
In this sense, he has maintained that the PP does not care “that they hang the medals or agree with other people.”
