The national president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has corrected this Tuesday in Ceuta his 'number 3', the Andalusian Elías Bendodo. She has done so forcefully: “It is evident that Spain is not a multinational State. It is obvious and therefore the debate does not exist. It is not and will not be a plurinational State”, reiterated the Galician politician, who has attributed the phrase of the general coordinator of his party to “an error rectified shortly after”.
Feijóo's PP tries to distance himself from the Cospedal and Villarejo audios: "It's a very old topic"
“What Spain is is defined by our history for 500 years. Spain is highly catalogued, identified and described in article 2 of the Constitution, which guarantees the indissoluble unity of the Spanish Nation, the common and indivisible homeland of all Spaniards, and recognizes and guarantees the right to autonomy of nationalities and regions” , has almost literally reproduced the Magna Carta.
In the opinion of the Galician politician, "the PP was born to draft, fulfill and defend the Constitution, which says that Spain is a nation that guarantees the autonomy of nationalities and regions and seeks solidarity among all of them." "That has been, is and will be the ideology of our party for as long as it exists", added Feijóo, who ten days ago, at the Cercle d'Economía, said that "for a nationality like the Catalan, the most appropriate option with the preservation of stability and its identity is the recovery of its leadership in Spain and the contribution to a vigorous State and European Union”.
The leader of the PP has wanted to undo the mess used by the extreme right to whip him from Ceuta, a city he had visited in November last year as president of the Xunta and to which he has returned for the first time as leader of the opposition to Pedro Sánchez to whip to the “tenant” of La Moncloa for how the land borders of Spain with Morocco have been reopened this morning coinciding with the first anniversary of the migration crisis of 2021.
Feijóo has been "glad" for the step taken towards "normality" in Ceuta and Melilla with the reestablishment of traffic with the neighboring country, but critically after meeting with the local employers and before doing so with representatives of the Security Forces . “It is not a complete celebration because visas or similar documents should be required from all Moroccans who want to enter and contracts from cross-border workers,” he protested before reproaching the Interior for “lack of foresight” for reopening the Tarajal pass “without guarantees neither legal nor full security, as well as without commercial customs or the human and material resources needed by the National Police and the Civil Guard.”
By elevation, he charged Sánchez for "breaking the consensus that on foreign policy with Morocco, Algeria, the Sahara and the United Nations we had maintained for decades”. “The PP is a responsible and loyal party with the State, but the Government must be told, that it is a temporary tenant, that it cannot negotiate what belongs to everyone, break basic consensus or make diplomatic lurches behind the back of the Courts, because that weakens us”, he added.
"I don't know the reasons why he did it, why he sent that one-sided letter that he hid from the Cortes and which we learned about through Morocco, nor anything about the content of the audience held with Mohamed VI: it is historic that Parliament has rejected it, that the Government has been divided and that the president went to Rabat without support of national sovereignty”, he has censored.
Abortion, king emeritus and Aguirre
To questions from the journalists, Núñez Feijóo, has defended his rejection to what the abortion law whose draft was approved this Tuesday by the Council of Ministers restore the right to women aged 16 and 17 to terminate their pregnancy voluntarily without the express permission of their parents. "If the legislation prohibits the consumption of alcohol by a person under the age of 18, it seems reasonable that the legislation requires parental permission for the voluntary termination of pregnancy," she has said.
Feijóo has also accused the Government of deploying a smoke screen with the abortion reform, an initiative that is contemplated in the agreement signed between the PSOE and United We Can. "When we have problems in Spain, the goal is to distract," he pointed out, to reiterate: "We think that minors should have the consent of their parents." Next, he has placed the responsibility on women: "The minors whose parents do not even know that decision, there is a rupture of affectivity with the parents at a very difficult moment for the minor, which is to make a decision of that category."
asked for the possible return of Juan Carlos I He has confessed "absolutely in favor of him returning to his country if he considers it appropriate because he has the right to do so." “As far as I know, he does not have any pending case in our country, he is a Spanish citizen, he keeps his passport and it seems to me that eroding the Head of State again, even through the king emeritus, is something that we do not deserve, much less that encourage from the Government”, has rejected.
questioned by Esperanza Aguirre's conversations Y Maria Dolores de Cospedal with Commissioner Villarejo to ask him for help with different procedures and whether he has adopted any measure so that these types of practices are not repeated around him, Feijóo has remarked that his party "is absolutely respectful of the rule of law, judicial investigations and their decisions”. “If you want to bring up recordings from a decade ago, everyone is within their rights”, he dismissed, “but our position is well known: respect for investigations and decisions that affect our formation or others”.
