An appreciable crack. United Can We have staged this Wednesday a clear division in its ranks as a result of the Government's decision to send weapons bilaterally to Ukraine to deal with the Russian invasion.
The Second Vice President, Yolanda Díaz, has emphasized that the purple space, a minority member of the Council of Ministers, supports the measure announced this Wednesday by surprise at the Congress of the Deputies and contrary to the theses defended to date since the Government, who denied That would be directly sending offensive weaponry to Ukraine and circumscribed only to the European plan of which Spain is part of.
"Government president has all our support," he has asserted Díaz minutes after the General Secretary of Can and Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, contradicted the President and accused him of "contributing to the war escalation" with the shipment. of weapons. The decision, furthermore, has been tiled as an "error" by the Unida spokesman we can in Congress, Pablo Echaneique.
The Purple Party has shown its discomfort for the first time for the change in the Executive Road Sheet and accuses Sánchez to be influenced by the pressure of the political right. At last time of this Tuesday, from the government's dome, IONE Belarra and Yolanda Díaz of the decision adopted, opposed to the moment defended so far. But Díaz, unlike Belarra and other welcome leaders, has closed rows with the president.
This has been the last point of disagreement between Yolanda Díaz and the dome of we can. In recent weeks, the situation has been given more occasions. The scarce support of Diaz to the United Campaign campaign in Castilla y León was one of the keys of the last step by the polls and the role played by the purple leaders on the broad front that prepares the second vice president remains an unknown.
Precisely this presidential profile is one of the arguments that justify the marked position on Wednesday per Diaz. The Vice-Chairperson, in addition, is the only United Us representative in the National Security Council, summoned in an extraordinary manner by Sánchez last week after the explosion of the crisis. Since then, Diaz has been much more comeded in his statements that members of the United Can welcome, who from outside the Council of Ministers criticized the role of NATO, the sending of EU weapons or the increased spending increase from other countries.
From within United Can we consider that all party leaders with representation in the government row in the same direction despite evidenced tensions and attribute to communicative differences what happened. Deny risk of rupture, nor at an internal level nor with the PSOE, with whom in the last week, as presumed, they maintained daily contact. However, the change of plans communicated at the last minute of this Tuesday surprised in the United Cupulation we can and showed a serious contradiction.
The truth is that from other flanks of the purple universe there have also been unfortunate: Jaume Asens, president of the Confederal and Leader Group of the Common, has claimed the right of the Ukrainian people to defend itself: "The international community can not stay crossed" He has expressed this Wednesday.
The internal fracture of units can and the new clash with the PSOE arrives just the same day at which the former party leader, Pablo Iglesias, has also criticized the shipment of weapons. "We're going to see many people from the left who were always those of not war say yes, that we have to send weapons now," the one who was Vice President of the Government.Date Of Update: 02 March 2022, 10:39
