MADRID, 30 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The Minister of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Democratic Memory, Félix Bolaños, has made the PP look ugly by not caring about “harming people” with his vote against the decree to mitigate the economic consequences of the war, which was finally validated this week with the support of EH Bildu.
“They have lost the north,” Bolaños said in statements collected by Europa Press in the framework of the act of homage to Clara Campoamor for the 50th anniversary of her death, held this Saturday at the Ateneo de Madrid.
Bolaños has lamented that the PP has already lost the north with its previous leader, Pablo Casado, and “continues to lose it” with the new one, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, since he considers it “incomprehensible” that “he does not care about harming people” by rejecting the mentioned decree.
“A party has to try every day to work to improve people’s lives, not to harm them, as the PP has done trying to overthrow the decree,” he insisted.
Likewise, he celebrated that the package of measures went ahead with the support of many political forces and “as approved by the Council of Ministers.” “We have not lost any vote throughout the legislature,” he applauded.
On the other hand, he has referred to the Government’s relationship with the Esquerra Republicana, which also voted against the decree due to the Government’s refusal to assume responsibility for the alleged espionage on pro-independence politicians with the ‘Pegasus’ program.
“NOTHING TO HIDE”
“The Government has absolutely nothing to hide, we are going to clarify the facts for what we have announced and the initiatives that we are going to take as soon as possible,” Bolaños pointed out in this regard. Likewise, he has assured that the Executive will try to clarify the event in the State Secrets Commission that he, he has defended, is composed in an “impeccable parliamentary” way.
On the other hand, he has described as a “party act” the intervention on Friday by the Secretary General of Podemos and Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, who asked for political responsibilities for the ‘Pegasus’ case. Belarra also slipped a criticism of Defense Minister Margarita Robles, although she did not quote it during her speech.
In this sense, in an interview with RTVE this Saturday, Bolaños expressed his “solidarity” and “support” for Robles and stressed that the Government “has a clear conscience” and “nothing to hide.”
On the other hand, the minister recalled the anniversary of Campoamor’s death and claimed his fight for women’s rights, a fight that, he said, “is still as valid as it was 50 years ago because there are still extremist discourses today that question these rights and that cast doubt even on the existence of gender-based violence”.
“That is why the Olona-Bonilla candidacy in Andalusia should clarify whether it is going to push back the rights of women”, he has sentenced in reference to the Vox candidate for the Presidency of the Andalusian Government, Macarena Olona, and that of the PP, Juanma Moreno Bonilla, in the upcoming elections on June 19.
