"The Head of State today made a speech that, although it comes from an institution that can hardly respond to the democratic and egalitarian desires of Spanish society, includes interesting clues and successes to be recognized, and some impressions on his words," Iglesias begins. in his Twitter account and shortly after the broadcast of the monarch's Christmas message.
The leader of Podemos valued the mention of equality and the importance of dialogue in search of coexistence, while criticizing the monarchical institution and what in his opinion represents. "He speaks to women, in what seems to be a recognition of the enormous disconnection that exists between the monarchical institution and the aspirations expressed by women in Spain.The king knows that feminist Spain does not want patriarchs," he adds.
"The most noteworthy is the change of tone with respect to the territorial issue, the Head of State abandons the speech of October 3 and speaks of coexistence and respect for diversity, thus implicitly recognizing that he was wrong assuming the thesis of the right on Catalonia. "he insists.
Finally, Iglesias ends up questioning the King's empathy. "The king is honored to try to empathize with the most punished and recognize their mistakes." The problem is that the monarchical institution belongs to another century and can not, although it tries, respond to the democratic need of Spain: social justice, feminism, end of corruption, "he concludes.
