Politics Genoa and Ayuso harmonize against Pedro Sánchez and the "cowardly right wing"

The hearts of Genoa and Sol do not always beat with the same cadence, but just over a month and a half before 28-M all the branches of the Popular Party, organic and institutional, seem to function in a well-oiled and coordinated manner. In the formation they boast of "internal tranquility" in the face of the "tripartite" fracture suffered by the government coalition and of a stable roadmap, in contrast to the political program offered by Vox, with whom Isabel Díaz Ayuso recently staged her break, an applauded decision by the party leadership.

The harmony has been evidenced on this occasion as a result of the interview that the Madrid president gave to EL MUNDO last week and that was on the front page of the Sunday edition of this newspaper. It coincided with the first anniversary of the arrival of Alberto Núñez Feijóo at the command of the PP. Ayuso proclaimed that he had no rival at the regional level and asserted that his electoral opponent is Pedro Sánchez.

Do they understand your statements in Genoa as a pulse to the national leadership? The campaign spokesman, Borja Sémper, denied the biggest this Monday: «We all confronted Pedro Sánchez, without a doubt. From the councilor of the smallest town, going through all the institutional positions to the president of the party”, he said after calling the interview “great”.

Vox has also been a reason for unity in recent days in the popular bosom. Two weeks ago, the relationship between the two parties entered a new phase as a result of the abstention of the PP in the motion of no confidence and the immediate break between Ayuso and Rocío Monasterio in the Madrid Assembly.

Despite the fact that Feijóo already said he respected and supported the position of the regional president, Sémper showed this Monday that the thaw between the two formations is still far away. The campaign spokesman turned around the qualification that those of Santiago Abascal usually use against the PP and defined Vox as the "cowardly right" for having given "a balloon of oxygen" to the Government by abstaining last week in the vote on pension reform.

"They have no political proposal," they point out in the PP. In fact, the main opposition party maintains that both Vox and the formations that make up the Executive form a force to "damage the PP and oppose Feijóo", which proves the strength of the popular as a "real alternative" to the Government . "We are not going to deviate from our path," Sémper settled.

That happens, they believe in Genoa, by going through the obstacle course that the May campaign and the end of the legislature will become. In the PP, it is surprising, for example, that in the debate on surrogacy opened by the Obregón case, the focus is on the opposition leader and not on the Executive's management of this matter.

Despite the fact that days ago there was talk that the PP would be willing to vary its position on this issue and open up to regulate it as long as it was altruistic, sources in Genoa deny that there is an internal discussion on surrogacy and stress that it is not planned that this issue be addressed before the ballot box in December. The PP's position is thus established in the conclusions of the Congress held in 2018, which calls for a "deep, serious and serene" debate on it.
