- Analysis: PP, PSOE and Citizens, determined to prime Vox
The president of the acting Government, Pedro Sánchez, has formally requested the vote of Citizens and the abstention of the PP from his inauguration in the first of the conversations to form a Government he has had with the opposition leader, Pablo Casado, and the spokesman for the orange formation, Inés Arrimadas, more than a month after the November 10 elections.
Sanchez has met early in Congress with Casado and then has done with Arrimadas. He has informed both of them that his intention is to comply with the coalition government pact signed with United We can but has requested their participation so that the new Executive does not depend on ERC.
This is what the vice-secretary general of the PSOE and socialist spokesman, Adriana Lastra, has said in a press conference that "if Mrs. Arrimadas does not want ERC to be decisive, she has it very simple, to support the investiture of Pedro Sánchez and the PP to refrain. " "You cannot warn that the country's governance cannot depend on the independence parties and at the same time oppose unlocking."
But this petition to PP and Cs is made while the talks with ERC continue to get his abstention and that the coalition Executive with Pablo Iglesias becomes a reality. Lastra herself has recognized that "the forecast is to reach an agreement with ERC that not only unlocks the investiture but also gives stability to the legislature." The leader has defended the discretion of the negotiations as the ideal formula to "end well". And it has even ensured that the approach to the dialogue to solve the Catalan problem would be maintained even if the abstention of the PP occurred. In any case, he added that "Married has flatly ruled out."
With the commitment to United We and ERC as the only way at this time for Sanchez to be invested and pending the decision on Thursday of the EU Court of Justice on the parliamentary immunity of Oriol Junqueras and Carles Puigdemont, the socialist spokesman returns tomorrow contacts with JxCat and ERC and the rest of the groups on the investiture. With the exception of Vox, which has declined the interview, the PSOE will meet with all parties. For the first time with Bildu - the abertzales have several legislatures in the Chamber - and with the CUP, which opens in Congress.
Despite the fact that with ERC there are formal negotiations between representatives of the two parties and permanent meetings and document exchanges, Lastra will meet with ERC spokesman Gabriel Rufián. The two are part of the negotiating group. The vice secretary of the PSOE will also do it with the leaders of JxCat, Laura Borràs and Miriam Nogueras. That meeting will be tomorrow at 4 in the afternoon. The rest of meetings are closing.
