The general elections of November 10, waiting for it to dissolve officially the Courts, this Monday, promise to be a "déjà vu" of the elections of the 28 of April. The political blockage does not move the parties of their approaches and the surveys drawn by the time scenarios very similar to the current composition of the Congress of Deputies. If the result is similar, Albert Rivera has it clear: "If Sanchez returns to have this situation, it will lock Spain".
Faced with this risk, in an interview in the Cope, the president of Citizens (Cs) has endeavored to point out to the secretary general of the PSOE as the main responsible of the repeat election. This message will become in one of the threads of the campaign, PP, Cs, and United we Can, which will try to modify the current balance of forces to be alternative –PP and Cs–, and to change the relationship of power with the PSOE –we Can–.
"I am concerned about a president that simply by calculations electoralistas is unable to reach agreements to govern him," said Rivera about Sanchez, who has been accused of being synonymous with blocking. " The "is not" Sanchez was on the verge of forcing a third election in 2016 and he had to take his party , " he recalled.
The fierce opposition of Rivera-Sanchez, however, has lost credibility this week after a deal "in extremis" to unlock the situation. After months of repeating that the non-Sánchez in the endowment was set in stone and that there would facilitate its mandate, "neither by active nor by passive", the president of the Cs announced that his party would abstain to Sanchez if this was an accepted three commitments.
The first, to break the Government of Navarra with the nationalists and dependent of EH Bildu; the second, not to pardon to the leaders of the "procés" in the event of a conviction and apply the article 155 of the Constitution in Catalonia if Quim Torra do not abide by the judgment; and third, to reduce the high tax burden envisaged in the economic policy socialist.Out of the Constitutionalism
Rivera this morning has asserted that the rejection of Sánchez to these three conditions, which also will be moved to the PP leader, Pablo Casado, who himself gave his approval, makes explicit the rupture of Sanchez with constitutionalism. Therefore, the light tint introduced by the head of rows of Cs in the interview loses all its force.
"of Course you can say no to Sanchez if you do not turn to the constitutionalism," said Rivera, before placing the president in functions completely outside of that framework. For Rivera, it is not of receipt that Sanchez received Torra in the Moncloa "as if it were a head of State" or has "agreed" with Arnaldo Otegui , the general coordinator of EH Bildu.
The president of Cs has refused to make self-criticism for the lateness of his offer to the PSOE, and he has justified that, after your campaign based on the not Sanchez, he would have been branded as "opportunistic", of wanting "a vice president" or of being only interested "in the chairs". Something, according to him, very far from the reality. "Many spaniards, despite the fact that we do not want to govern Sanchez, yes we want this country to be put in place," he assured.
finally, Rivera heavily loaded against RTVE by sending out letters informing about electoral debates, the same morning that the King was the beginning of the failed round of consultations, and has censored that has been left out to Cs of the proposals of "face to face" made by the public body. "What afraid of Sanchez?", it has been asked, has demanded a rectification to Rosa María Mateo and has warned that he is not willing to pay with public money, "telesánchez".Updated Date: 19 September 2019, 18:01
