Arrimadas Asks Sánchez "to Choose" To His Partners For Budgets And He Responds That He Will Not Accept "crossed Vetoes"

The president of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, has issued an ultimatum to the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, on Wednesday, who has been asked to “choose” which are the parties with which he wants to agree on the Budgets, if with the force that is said ” liberal “, now inclined to agree with the Executive, or with” a radical agreement “with the independence parties.

“The moment of truth has come, you have to choose,” Arrimadas told Sánchez during the government control session in the Congress of Deputies. “If you agree with us, they will be more moderate economically, if you agree with Bildu and ERC, there will be more separatist concessions,” said the president of Ciudadanos, who has considered that “you cannot go two ways that go in the opposite direction” .


“Politics is much more than empty phrases,” the chief executive replied, immediately afterward. “This is not about going against each other, we need each other,” he stressed, alluding to the idea of ​​variable geometry with which the Government justifies its agreements with different political forces.

However, Sánchez has issued a warning to Arrimadas: “We are not going to accept any crossed veto and we are going to dialogue with all the parliamentary forces.”

Previously, the President of the Government had maintained a new scuffle with the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, due to EH Bildu’s predisposition to support the Budgets, despite the fact that the PSOE has insisted that there is no formal agreement with the independence formation . According to Casado, the Bildu members were the ones who “pointed out those whom ETA later killed.”

“There are socialists who are nauseous to hear that they are their partners,” the leader of the PP stressed, before considering that the pacts “are going to haunt Sánchez all his life. Casado has come to accuse the Chief Executive of making a pact “with Hipercor”, alluding to the bloody attack by ETA, which killed dozens of people in the attack that took place in 1987 in the aforementioned shopping center in Barcelona.

Sánchez, in his reply, reminded Casado that the use of ETA or Catalonia against the Government is “the old book of the PP when it is in opposition.” After recalling that the processing of the Budgets has been endorsed by the vote of 198 congressional deputies – those who last week rejected the amendments in full – the Prime Minister has accused the PP of practicing “the politics of Trumpism.”

They tell lies fake news, disinformation, they lie without shame, as Trump, you do not recognize the electoral defeat, they have labeled this government illegitimate. They follow the technique of Trumpism very closely and will have the same end, electoral defeat, “Sánchez concluded.

Also the second vice president, Pablo Iglesias, has seen how in his turn the PP recriminated the agreements that the Government is weaving to carry out the accounts for 2021. In his question, the number two

of Pablo Casado, Teodoro García Egea, questioned him about the “confidence” that, in his opinion, the Budgets generate.

But García Egea has taken the opportunity to wield Bildu’s support against the Executive. “He has taken the mask off Sánchez,” the general secretary of the PP told Iglesias. “The Spaniards thought that Sánchez had no choice but to have him in his Government, but with the Budgets of Shame Spain has verified that Sánchez is right where he wants: despising the outstretched hand of the PP and Pablo Casado, and hugging Podemos and Bildu” .

“Many socialists are grateful,” said the Murcia deputy. “We already know that Sánchez did not want to govern with Ciudadanos Rivera or Arrimadas. He has expelled the mayoress of the PSOE of Cartagena for agreeing with the PP and maintains the president of Navarra after agreeing with Bildu. That is why he wants to renew the General Council of the Judiciary with you and imposes educational law against parental consent. “

García Egea has settled, with a reference to Alfonso Guerra: “There was a Pablo Iglesias who founded the PSOE and another who will end that constitutional party. After the pacts with Bildu, the PSOE will not recognize him or the mother who gave birth to him” .

“They do not want to talk about the content of the Budgets because they know that they generate trust and are good for Spain. That is why you come here to talk about ETA,” the second vice president replied. Iglesias has warned the number two de Casado that “if you think you are hurting the president by saying that you prefer to agree with the left than with the PP, you are wrong.”

Iglesias recalled the Ajuria Enea agreement, signed by the Popular Alliance of Manuel Fraga, which later became the PP. “on a party founded by ministers of a dictatorship that murdered more Spaniards than anyone else and that did more harm than anyone. Fraga made a path towards democracy, it was a success for the democrats, but now they are doing the opposite. They govern with a force that vindicates the governments of the dictatorship and they say that this government is legitimate, that they do not want to agree on the renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary because we are here. “

And he has settled: “You are now the antisystem. I have never hidden my political desire, that the right is out of the State for many years. And my main ally for that objective is yourselves.”
