Gamarra accuses Sánchez of “imposing” his energy plan and then getting on the Falcon: “The only selfish one is him”

He assures that the chief executive is in time to “rectify” some measures that “everyone dislikes” and “alters”


The general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, has harshly charged this Thursday against the chief executive, Pedro Sánchez, for “imposing” an energy saving plan without dialogue and asking for “sacrifices” from people with air conditioning or heating, but then go up to the Falcón and continue maintaining “22 ministries and 800 advisers.”

“Here the only selfish person is the one who continues to spend as if nothing were happening and continues to demand sacrifices while he does not make any. That is the definition of selfishness by nature and it has a name in this country: Pedro Sánchez,” Gamarra proclaimed, after that Sánchez asked on Monday to flee from “selfish, unsupportive and unilateral” approaches after Isabel Díaz Ayuso’s rejection of his decree with measures to save energy.

In an act in Jerez de la Frontera, Gamarra has blamed Sánchez for asking citizens to lower the heating, reduce the air conditioning, turn off the lights or take off his tie and, “then day after day” he is “riding on the helicopter or the Falcon wasting fuel”. In his opinion, this is “pure inconsistency” and a “teasing.” “That really is selfishness with all the letters,” he exclaimed.

Gamarra has highlighted that “all Spaniards are changing their rhythm of life” and it cannot be that the Government “continues to live beyond its means”, “wasting” public spending and maintaining “22 ministers and 800 advisers”. As he has underlined, these advisers should tell him “the truth” about what Spanish society is experiencing.

In addition, he has indicated that this energy saving plan responds to a “commitment” that Europe requires until March 31, 2023 and, however, the Government of Pedro Sánchez proposes it until October 31 of that same year. In his opinion, these commitments must be assumed for the set time and not be “six more months” because Sánchez “seems to feel like it.”


After accusing the Executive of “imposing conditions on everyone”, he recalled the energy saving measures presented by Alberto Núñez Feijóo in a “constructive” spirit and stated that Sánchez “is in time to rectify” and “agree on a plan that nobody likes, that everybody dislikes and keeps absolutely freaked out”.

Apart from assuming the PP’s global energy saving plan, he has invited Sánchez to “redirect” relations with Algeria”, at the same time that he has branded the so-called ‘Iberian exception’ as a “joke and occurrence” because it means paying “200 million euros plus France”. “This little joke is costing us Spaniards very dearly”, he stressed.

The ‘number two’ of the PP has insisted that solutions must be agreed upon with municipalities and communities, but Sánchez chooses to act “by royal decree law.” “This makes us understand the anger of city councils and communities because when things are imposed on people, they obviously rebel and say there is another way to do it,” he said.


In addition, he has highlighted that the “acme of impudence” is that the Government, which “pardons” those convicted of the ‘procés’ and “does not urge compliance with the law in Catalonia” with Castilian, comes to give “lessons” the PP to comply with the law “to those who have never broken it”.

The general secretary of the PP has warned that Spain “is not here for vacations” due to the economic crisis” that it is experiencing and “needs now more than ever a president who stops hovering over the problems of citizens”.

In his opinion, Sánchez has shown that he neither knows nor wants to govern, with a political agenda every day “farther from the day-to-day life of the Spaniards.” “We are facing a divorce between society and the Government,” he stated, concluding that there is another “way of doing things” with the “alternative” represented by Alberto Núñez Feijóo.

The general coordinator of the PP, Elías Bendodo, has also alluded to this matter, pointing out that the president of the FEMP and mayor of Vigo, Elías Bendodo, has already said that he is going to “spend more money on Christmas lights” despite what that Pedro Sánchez asks for. In addition, he has stressed that the PP is dedicated to “making State proposals” and the Government to “doing politics.” “The papers are changed”, he has emphasized.

Gamarra and Bendodo made these statements at a ceremony held in a winery in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz), in which the president of the local PP and national deputy, María José García Pelayo, and the president of the provincial PP, also participated. Bruno Garcia Leon.
