Mendia asks the abertzale left to condemn with "clarity and emphaticity" the graffiti on the headquarters of political parties

In statements to Cadena Ser, collected by Europa Press, the socialist leader has also referred to the situation generated by covid-19 and the de-escalation process.

After defending that the single command during the state of alarm has been the "most useful tool to avoid contagions and fight the pandemic", Mendia recalled that Spain is a country made up of Autonomous Communities and "co-governance was compatible with the single command "

In his opinion, from now on what is at stake is to end all phases of the de-escalation "protecting what has been achieved" and, therefore, "politicians at the height of the circumstances and who provide serenity and confidence" are needed " . "For that it is necessary that the state of alarm be restricted until the end of June and I hope that on Wednesday in the Congress of Deputies it will have the greatest support," he confided.

On the other hand, he has defended that citizens need "clear certainties and messages from their governments" and warned that the current situation is "very difficult and requires trial and error." "We are moving in the right direction and, although there have been criticisms of the Government of Spain, they have been unfair. Collaboration and dialogue must prevail," he added.

Questioned by the appearance in recent days of graffiti on the PNV, PSE and Podemos headquarters, alluding to the hunger and thirst strike that ETA prisoner Patxi Ruiz is carrying out, Mendia has attributed them to "people from around the abertzale left "who are" longing for the past and do not want to assume the rules of democracy and the minimum respect for other parties. "

Likewise, he recalled that these are graffiti on a prisoner who does not want to assume prison law and has asked "the abertzale left for clarity and emphaticity in statements that go in the direction of condemning these actions."


Finally, and questioned about a possible electoral call in July, Mendia recalled that the Basque Country needs a Parliament that controls the Executive and, furthermore, "we are going to have to make very radical decisions" to face the crisis.

"For that we need an active and fully functioning Parliament that can only be achieved through elections. We have only asked the Lehendakari to guarantee the safety of the Basques and, if so, we will agree," he concluded.
