Pedro Sánchez aspires this month to greet Pablo Iglesias as the gravedigger to the body. He intends to embalm him and bury him discreetly, without hearing the incessant rumors of angry podemites. The sanchista alternative is very clear: either free support or elections. Pablo Iglesias does not expect anything else from Pedro Sánchez. He also knows that Tezanos relegates in the poldemite surveys the testimonial role that the Communist Party has represented in Spain since the Transition.
In 2016, the Pedro Sánchez PSOE, encouraged by Felipe González , escaped the embrace of the Podemite bear to sign a 150-point agreement with Albert Rivera, the leader of Citizens. With his voluntarism always at hand, Pedro Sánchez believed that the leader of Podemos had no choice but to support him in the investiture session.
But he was wrong. All the surveys certified the sorpasso of Podemos on the PSOE in a general election. The investiture failed, it was constitutionally obliged to summon the Spaniards to the polls. Pablo Iglesias aspired to be the bishop on the left displacing the PSOE. But the polls were wrong and Pedro has not forgiven Pablo for the pumping of those pumpkins, especially after the podemite swept him dialectically in the Congress of Deputies, and before television cameras, a few months ago during the investiture debate .
The paths of politics are inscrutable and it is difficult to know in these cannular days how Pablo Iglesias will respond to Pedro Sánchez's voracious alternative. The reasons of the heart and brain do not usually coincide . Pablo Iglesias, who was backed by nearly five million votes, could see his suffrage squad reduced. This is what Tezanos says. And the formula of a Sanchista government, with the single parliamentary support of 123 deputies of the PSOE plus some minor crumbs, would allow the leader of Podemos, throughout the legislature, to get up early on the left to Pedro Sánchez, week after week.
Pedro and Pablo, in short, or uncertainty. The representation of the Spanish left is disputed and it seems unlikely that, despite Sánchez's efforts, the PSOE will bury Podemos , even if the Popular Party or Cs decided to make an unexpected gesture.
