The Government regrets that "the first decision" of the Feijóo PP is to govern with the extreme right in Castilla y León

The Government has lamented this Tuesday that "the first decision" of the president of the Popular Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, since he came to the leadership of the main opposition party, is to "embrace the proposals of the extreme right" and "allow their entry" in an autonomous government such as that of Castilla y León. one day after the investiture of the popular Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, who will govern in coalition with Voxthe spokeswoman for the Executive, Isabel Rodríguez, has denounced that the attitude of the Spanish PP is "the opposite" of that of the rest of the European right, which has indeed woven a democratic cord against the extreme right.

“We are seeing how all the European forces are positioning themselves against these proposals from the extreme right. And in Spain, what the main opposition party does is embrace the proposals of the extreme right ”, he lamented. This is, in his opinion, "bad news" both for democracy and for the country as a whole, because "instead of establishing a democratic cordon" what the PP does is "open wide the doors" to the far right.

Also during the press conference after the Council of Ministers, the Minister of Justice, Pilar Llop, has emphasized the seriousness of, in her opinion, that the PP agrees "with a political force that denies a state issue such as the struggle against gender violence. “It is something very serious”, she added, recalling that Vox “denies that in Spain there are more than 1,000 women murdered” since the victims of gender violence are counted, that “they have been due to machismo”.

“Invisibility” of gender-based violence

"The PP, which is a party that has governed in this country, which voted in favor of the State pact, has to make a clear reflection because talking about domestic violence means endangering the rights of women and girls," Llop assured. . His reflection came after yesterday, during the investiture debate in Castilla y León, Mañueco adopted that term of "intrafamily violence" that Vox defends. All of this, he added, means "making invisible that there is gender-based violence" which is a "specific violence against women".

For the Government "the PP must establish a democratic chain" in the face of these positions because "if not", it has concluded "it will betray" the "rights" of women. Isabel Rodríguez has added that Vox's proposals "attack" against "the democratic and constitutional system" of Spain. In his opinion, what is "talked about" when discussing relations with the extreme right is "which side" one is on, "if what modern countries do" which is to establish a "democratic cordon" or "of the extreme right that attacks democracy and coexistence”.
