The president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, plans to bring its Minister council before announcing the advancement of elections general, that "everything points" to be convened for next April 28, as they advance to The vanguard sources close to the Executive.
Once Congress is expected to reject this morning the first draft of the general budget of the State prepared by the Government that arose after the motion of censure against Mariano Rajoy, just eight months ago, the legislature is like this hearing for sentence.
And Sanchez will choose to precipitate the call for general elections as soon as possible, one month before the municipal, regional and European elections on May 26. Except change of last-minute strategy, in the Moncloa ensure that the date chosen by the President of the Government is next 28th of April.
But the announcement of the electoral call by Sanchez could be delayed until this Friday, according to Moncloa sources, when the Council of Ministers is scheduled to meet at its usual weekly meeting.
The article 115 of the Spanish Constitution establishes that the dissolution of the Cortes and the convocation of general elections is the exclusive power of the President of the Government. But, according to the Magna Carta, "after deliberation of the Council of Ministers." And this precept is the one that has been put forward by the Vice President of the Government, Carmen Calvo, so that Sanchez has a "constitutional sustenance" for his announcement, according to Moncloa sources.
In the Government, however, they have rejected any sense of failure. And they have assured that an Executive that has lost does not have the "cheer up" with which today it will leave the plenary session of the Congress after seeing its budget project knocked down. "We are already campaigning!" They warned. Luck is cast, and the polls will have to decide the immediate political future from Spain.
