The leader of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias, has acknowledged "successes" in the Christmas message delivered by the King tonight, such as referring to women, young people, trying to "empathize with the most punished" or "recognize that he was wrong assuming the thesis of the right on Catalonia."
Iglesias has written several messages on his Twitter account in which he reflects "some personal impressions" after hearing the Christmas message of Philip VI, words that, in his opinion, come "from an institution that can hardly respond to the democratic and egalitarian desires of Spanish society. "
Among the "successes" of the King's message, the most "noteworthy" for the general secretary of Podemos is his "change of tone", regarding the "territorial issue" and thus ensures that "the Head of State abandons the speech of the October 3 and speaks of coexistence and respect for diversity · "to recognize" implicitly that he was wrong assuming the thesis of the right on Catalonia.
Church also emphasizes that the King has spoken of women "in what seems a recognition of the enormous disconnection that exists between the monarchical institution and the aspirations that women have expressed in Spain" and assures that Don Felipe "knows that feminist Spain he does not want patriarchs. "
He also praises Felipe VI's interest in young people "a collective that looks with strangeness and feels less and less identified with the monarchy." Beyond the effectiveness of these messages, they are a sign that the King is aware of the limits of the institution that represents, and that is positive, "he states in his tweet.
For the leader of Podemos, "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: justice social, feminism, end of corruption ".
