The 'it is not no' that Pedro Sánchez made famous as a weapon against the Government of Mariano Rajoy has returned to the scene. The president has recovered it in a campaign event in Zaragoza to refer to the Catalan independence movement: "If there is a socialist government, there will be no referendum and Spain will not go bankrupt." He has also remarked that both the independence movement and the Spanish right know perfectly well that there will not be a referendum, because "the Constitution does not admit it".
"The real problem in Catalonia is independence," the President of the Government continued. To solve it, he says, there are two options: "continue confronting, as the right wants, or appeal to dialogue, within the Constitution, which is what the PSOE defends." Sanchez recalled that the far right wants to "centralize many competitions and question the self-government of the communities", not like his party, "which will defend self-government and the State of Autonomies in our country."
Sanchez has also boasted of the achievements of his Government since the motion of censure against Mariano Rajoy. "We are defined by the fact that this country grows and that wealth is shared, especially among those who need it the most". Thus, he has defended that it is necessary to make politics "a valid instrument for progress". The socialist has stressed that this merit has been in this end of the term, a work of "84 deputies and the Bureau of Congress against."
"Do we want Spain to move forward or backward? Do we want a Spain where we all fit or just a few?" Sanchez asked three weeks before the elections. He has called the Spaniards to mobilize to stop the "real risk" that a parliament can be formed in Spain like the one that remained in Andalusia after the last elections. The solution against the possible sum of the rights is, for the socialist leader "join forces in the only party that can add more than them, which is the PSOE in order to continue the social turn, the fight against corruption and coexistence" .
Among the issues that most concern the left is the rise of the extreme right and the possibility of getting a large number of deputies this April 28. Also that his speech is "radicalizing the PP and Citizens." "Why is it again about homophobia and questioning the right to abortion? How is it possible that the fight against gender violence has been questioned?" Sanchez asked. Thus, the "great reproach" that, he says, must be done to these two parties is "that they have abandoned the struggle of arguments with the extreme right".
"Married every time he really says what he thinks puts into question the rights and freedoms of women in Spain, but never messes with the extreme right," the socialist leader continued. He also had words for his other rival, the leader of Ciudadanos: "I do not know what I did to him, they ask him for the time and he answers with Mr. Sanchez." When they ask him for Mr. Sanchez, I do not know what he's going to say, it's going to stay blocked. "
The Prime Minister also referred to Suárez Illana, number two of the PP for Madrid, whom he has described as "denial of abortion" and Daniel Lacalle, chief economic adviser to the popular leader, and insisted that "the debate the PP is not to revalue but to cut pensions ".
Sanchez has put on the table again the importance of Spain. "It is a country that brings good values and has been an example in many countries of the world." Despite this, he acknowledged, "there is still a lot to do and resolve". It has divided its main objectives into three groups: social justice, fight against corruption and coexistence within the Constitution.
The need to approve a new Workers' Statute "to repeal the labor reform", a law of equality between men and women, to put an end to the gag law and to abolish the measures of the deputies of the Congress have been some of the measures March if he revalidates the power on April 28.
In addition, he wanted to highlight another commitment to the last term: the right to euthanasia. He has done it in a week in which this debate has returned to the present as a result of the case of Ángel Hernández, who helped his wife, María José Carrasco to put an end to her life in a dignified manner.
