  • February 14, 2021 Catalan Elections Calendar

For the national leadership of the PP, these

Catalan elections

are not just another electoral appointment.

The candidacy of

Alejandro Fernández

has been supported weekly since November by Pablo Casado, who knows that a good result on

February 14

would also be a boost to his leadership.

Already in the middle of the campaign, the most important territorial leaders of the party are joining the events organized in different parts of



After the visit, last weekend, of the president of the

Community of Madrid

, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, and the mayor of the capital, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, today Alberto Núñez Feijóo has shown his support, in a telematic act, to the list headed by Fernández.

"Catalonia needs more reforms and fewer ruptures to return to the first level of avant-garde in


", has advised the president of the

Xunta de Galicia

, who, with the credentials granted by its four consecutive absolute majorities, has vindicated "the



Galician popular

"both in economic management and in the cohabitation of official languages.

After several years with the identity debate monopolizing the media agenda, the PP has wanted to recover the policies of

economic growth and job creation

as its hallmarks also in Catalonia.

For this reason, Feijóo has focused a good part of his speech in the field of management and aid to the productive sectors: "We have shown that the way out of a crisis can be programmed with

tax cuts


The president of the Xunta considers that the

independence movement

"has turned the enterprising, open and cosmopolitan Catalonia into a closed and self-absorbed place, from which companies and financial institutions are leaving."

His recipe for a community that has a high number of citizens of Galician origin is to "manage the


, unite society and start an economic and employment recovery."

Feijóo has not missed the opportunity to make the banner of "the proud defense of the


, of freedom and of that


that respects the diversity of languages".

Likewise, although without citing them, he has criticized the PSOE and Salvador Illa for "saying 'no' to the independentists, but governing the whole of Spain with them."

In his speech, the candidate Fernández praised the government action of the leader of the


Galicians, "a president for all", who has opposed "the sectarianism" of the secessionist executives in Catalonia.

The event with the president of the Xunta was held in the midst of a controversy over his discrepancies with Ayuso's decision to keep the

hospitality business



"Madrid has opted for a decision for which I would not feel responsible if I had to apply it in Galicia and, therefore, I have opted for another," Feijóo said in an interview published today in

La Voz de Galicia


Precisely, on Saturday in


, the Madrid president unambiguously referred to the restrictions on economic activity imposed by the


: "It is a crime that everything is closed with the climate in Catalonia."

Casado has tried to take iron out of the matter and, in an interview on Cadena Ser, he has assured that Feijóo and Ayuso "are doing exactly the same" to face the coronavirus, but that "the demographic distribution [of their respective communities] is not it's the same".
