Alfonso Fernández Mañueco is about to celebrate a year at the head of the Junta de Castilla y León. In this time, it has established itself as one of the moderate profiles and managers of the PP, always looking at the center and proposing economic pacts to the PSOE. Now that his community begins to recover from the coronavirus and is already venturing out of the health crisis, Mañueco calls for calm and asks to maintain some mobility restrictions to avoid outbreaks.

Is Parliament a reflection of Spain? Are we so angry or at odds? The Reconstruction Commission sometimes seems to be struggling to destroy bridges. Yes, I believe that we have to make every effort to understand each other more. I ask for a verbal de-escalation. We must be able to find a space of moderation, of understanding, of criticism, even with hardness and forcefulness to the other, to the adversary. That we meet, understand each other, sit down, dialogue, look for the possibility of points of agreement. His counterpart, Galician President Alberto Núñez Feijóo, says that the opposition must not "fall into the trap" and "lose the papers", and that "enough of this type of parliamentary spectacles". Do you share it? Yes, I totally agree. I believe that President Feijóo has a lot of experience in these matters, which is what the people of each one of our territories are asking us at the moment. The Spaniards ask us to dialogue, to worry about the fundamental. And at the moment the fundamental thing is the health, the sanitary security and the employment of the people. Do not be distracted by dialectical battles that do not interest anyone. The political pact that is forged in Castilla y León contrasts with the distancing of the PP and the PSOE at the national level. What is the difference? I think that the one that has to make a greater effort is the Government of Spain. The one who has to make an effort to build bridges with the opposition is the Prime Minister. Just as it has done with the autonomous communities, it still needs to make that effort with the political forces represented in Parliament, mainly the opposition. Cayetana Álvarez de Toledo says that he would like a Government of concentration, but that Sánchez would have to be another Sánchez. Do you share it? Saying how a government should be is very complicated. That there would have been a pact, a great coalition ... That was in other times. I think that now what we have to do is an effort to reach an agreement, to understand each other in what is national politics, in the main economic lines. In July there will be the Galician and Basque elections. Is the PP playing heads or tails? Is victory in Galicia the basis on which the alternative of government should be built at the national level? Alberto Núñez Feijóo is not only a great president, but he has shown great leadership. He has the affection and recognition in general of the Galician society, not only of those who trust him and who lend him their support, but even of those who do not give him their vote. I believe that he has shown great leadership and it was, at a certain moment, his victory in 2009, on which the victory of Mariano Rajoy in 2011 was founded. I am convinced that Alberto Núñez Feijóo's victory will be the Letter of introduction to Spanish society to promote the alternative of Pablo Casado, of the PP, and return to La Moncloa. Do you think that it is the managerial profile that wins the PP elections, as Feijóo shows? Regarding the case of Feijóo, they are two keys. On the one hand, moderation, and on the other hand, management efficiency. And if you allow me, also the defense of Galicia, of its land. And in those three elements I believe that Feijóo is an example and a role model. And the PP, as a party that aspires to govern Spain? Well, I believe that these identity marks can be valid for Pablo. I believe that the commitment to moderation, without prejudice to being firm and forceful in criticism of the Government of Spain. I also think that he is making an important effort to show that the PP has people, women and men of great prestige: Ana Pastor, Elvira Rodríguez, Isabel García Tejerina, Manuel Pizarro, Miguel Arias Cañete ... I think they were people who They demonstrate the value that we have from the PP, without prejudice to the fact that the capacity of a new generation of politicians is also demonstrated. Pablo Casado is the example of that. But, now that we are heading towards the most abrupt economic depression that has been seen in Spain, should the PP boost its managerial profile more than parliamentary attacks? RSi there is something that characterizes the Popular Party is for management, economic management. I think that this is where the Popular Party is unbeatable and that is what Pablo Casado is doing special advocacy. The strategic turn of Citizens with Inés Arrimadas, is it an opportunity for the PP? Well, I like to be respectful of the government partners [in Castilla y León]. We are going to see what remains, but this approach to the PSOE can make the PP find there also the possibility of approaching those moderate, focused layers of society, those middle classes that are also looking for a benchmark in efficiency and management. economic. What he is saying is that the PP must look even more if it fits in the center. From my point of view, yes. The PP must look more to the center. I have said it many times and I think that Pablo Casado is no stranger to that. For all the national presidents of the PP, his intention was to look for the center, and Pablo is making efforts to look for it, but today it is in other directions. Should Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska resign? The internal note from the director of the Civil Guard is a smoking pistol. What is happening are very serious events. The minister has lied in parliamentary headquarters. It has been shown that the reason for the dismissal of De los Cobos has been for not obeying one of his orders and that a report remains protected when it is part of an investigation requested by a judge. But what seems more serious to me is that as a magistrate I do not respect the rule of law. In politics not everything goes. If Sánchez protects Marlaska he becomes his accomplice. The minister must assume his responsibility. There are red lines that cannot be crossed. Do you think it is an attack on the Civil Guard and judicial independence? Well, I think it is important to highlight and recognize the work of the State Security Corps and Forces. And also, it seems to me that mechanisms should be sought in the parliamentary sphere so that this does not happen again in the future. How would these mechanisms be articulated? Just as there is a Commission of Official Secrets, since there is a commission to analyze these areas and ensure the independence of researchers.Marlaska has given five different versions and that has not made him assume responsibilities, are we anesthetizing ourselves in the face of scandals? Well, it is true that we live in a world in which what happens by the morning seems that at noon it is no longer worth. And I am not going to say that anesthetizing ourselves, because in the end the society makes an analysis of everything that is happening, although the events pick up a lot of speed. On Thursday, the Audience of Salamanca ordered to reopen the investigation for an alleged illegal financing of the PP in Castilla and León in the primaries that you won in 2017. What do you have to say? It is a process that starts from an anonymous complaint that the judge has already filed on two occasions and the Prosecutor's Office had the same criteria. What the Salamanca Province Court has done is ask for a specific fact to be clarified. I have had almost no organic responsibilities in the PP of Salamanca for almost 20 years. At the moment there are no people, not even the Popular Party, who are neither investigated nor charged. Therefore, I can clarify little more on this matter. Trust in Justice. On March 2, six days before the Vox congress and the 8-M, Fernando Simón did not see fit to comment with the autonomies on the EU recommendation on the advisability of not holding "unnecessary" crowds. to the autonomous communities it has to be much more agile, more immediate. On Thursday, March 5, Health has a meeting with the communities at the Inter-territorial Health Council. Man, there is a clear responsibility on the part of the Government. More than responsibility, it is a clear competence of the Government, which is to receive the reports from international agencies, from the European, from the World Health Organization, and transfer them to the autonomous communities. That is the responsibility of Simón. How many people have died in recent weeks in Castilla y León and what is happening with the data? In Castilla y León, 3,739 people have died from coronavirus or symptoms compatible with the disease. Regarding the death toll, we have to make an effort of maximum transparency. For us, those who die from coronavirus are all those who die in a hospital with confirmed tests, but also those who die in residences, have tests and are confirmed or are symptoms compatible with coronavirus. Do we have to lift all the restrictions of the alarm state? ? The decree of the new normality will maintain many. My position has always been the same. I need a legal framework that allows mobility control and a response with greater efficiency, with greater agility and with greater flexibility. There are other autonomous communities such as Castilla y León, which we need to have a limitation of movements of people between provinces and between autonomous communities. In Castilla y León we need to prolong the movement restrictions for a time, so that people do not pass from one autonomous community to another, so you would like to see mobility from Madrid to some neighboring provinces ... By percentage of population, by concentration in a single province, number of inhabitants ... The link we have is something to see. You have to see that evolution and, when the time comes, we have to make the most appropriate decisions thinking about the benefit of all. If the epidemiological evolution demands it, I would like there to be restrictions.
