The PNV spokesman in Congress, Aitor Esteban, said Monday that the PSOE has not contacted his group to request their support in the investiture of Pedro Sanchez as president.
If the PSOE does not contact the PNV, it is more likely that they will abstain
"We do not feel any anguish, nor are we in any hurry. Nor do I ask you to call us; they will know if they are interested in our votes, "Esteban said on Radio Euskadi three hours before the inauguration ceremony began.
As he explained, if the socialist party does not contact the PNV, "the most likely" is that their group abstains. Esteban explained that he will listen to Pedro Sánchez's speech to analyze what the position of the PNV deputies will be and also analyze "if the agreement reached with Unidas Podemos does not exceed" some "unacceptable" lines for Basque nationalists.
