The national convention of the PP will not have any of the major world political leaders in office. From the names that the party itself revealed this Thursday, there is only one national president in office, the Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurtz, who will close next to Paul married the appointment. The vice president of the European Commission, Margaritis Schinás will also be, the largest European authority that will come to the appointment.
The rest of the illustrious guests will be all former leaders: the former president of the European Commission and former Prime Minister of Portugal José Manuel Durao Barroso; The former general secretary of NATO and former Danish Prime Minister Fogh Rasmussen; The president of the European PP and former president of the European Council, Donald Tusk; and former French president Nicolas Sarkozy.
"The program of the Convention says a lot about the attraction capacity of Pablo Marriedo, who can bring together European leaders," ensure in the PP. "The party is in good shape when it manages to bring all these international references," have added popular sources in an informative meeting with the press. "Married has wanted this convention to be the point to launch the alternative to the government," they added.
From the scrutiny of all these foreign names draw attention to the absence of social democratic leaders. Above all, because Pablo Married raised in June, by presenting the master lines of the Convention, which this conclave would serve for the party to be "widen". "From our left and from our right, around a reasonable and focused project in what Spain needs," he said.
Asked in this regard, in the PP, they say that "widening does not have to come only from the ideological aspect, but about the ability to attractive, generate interest and generate first level teams." "We wanted to advance in the Convention as the construction of an alternative government project Spain," they add.
On the absence of Angela Merkel (and in addition, that of his successor, Armin Laschet), the sources of the PP remember that Germany celebrates in elections this weekend and the following is celebrated on Germany's Day. In the case of Sarkozy, convicted by corruption and imputed otherwise, in the PP justify that he was invited before being convicted and what "interests" is the experience of him in the management of France.
As for the non-presence that of Albert Rivera, in the PP they say: "It is a subject that we have never introduced". That is, that the former president of citizens was never on the radar of marriage, although they will never deny it to avoid headlines. Yes there will be two ex of citizens (Juan Carlos Girana) and Vox (Alejo Vidal-Quadras). Both will participate at a table on national unit in Valladolid, on Tuesday, September 28.
The lack of international intellectuals is more due to the cache that they already ask for the agendas, but in the PP they say that "the vast majority" with which they have become contact have worked "intensely" in the previous tables that have prepared the land for This convention. The only intellectual of Lotón who will attend will be the Nobel Mario Vargas Llosa Prize.
Previously, the PP has celebrated 50 preparatory tables with experts. "We have listened to civil society: analysts, professors, journalists, representatives of Think Tanks ... hence a huge work of ideas debate, which is the key debate of this convention," the sources have pointed out.
On Wednesday, in Madrid, a Liberal Feminism Table will be held: "The commitment to the equality of women is a fundamental axis of the PP and discrimination against women is a reality." "Now, from those ideas that we share with the left, the truth is that there is no single feminism, and the feminist perspective of the PP must be differentiated from that of the left, with different proposals," the sources A told The press.Updated Date: 23 September 2021, 12:20
