Mañueco takes office without Feijóo and weakened by his government with Vox: anti-feminist and without ‘memory’


Share post:

Alfonso Fernández Mañueco continues to receive clear gestures from his party, which is trying to dissociate itself from its agreement to government with Vox in Castilla y León. In this way, the new president of the Junta de Castilla y León will celebrate his inauguration in Parliament with two very significant absenceswho distance themselves due to their approach to the extreme right: that of the new president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, and that of the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno.

And it is that we must not forget that Mañueco made a investiture speech in which he included several nods to Vox such as the law of domestic violence, the law of harmony, the fight against the occupation, indoctrination in the classrooms or “ordered immigration”, among others.

Feijóo and Moreno did not like the pact with Mañueco’s extreme right and even less all the assignments that he has granted them to be able to govern. For this reason they try to distance themselves from any movement that identifies them with the extreme right.

Feijóo dodges the photo

The new leader of the popular ones has managed to dodge as he wanted the photo with the first sword of Vox, Santiago Abascal, who would finish with a stroke of the pen with his intention to turn towards the center and give an image of moderation. The far-right formation is leaving votes since the replacement of Casado in the PP and with the Andalusian elections in the making, Feijóo does not want to take false steps in the face of the gallery.

The Galician excuse to turn his back on Mañueco on this occasion has been that just on Tuesday he plans to meet with the union leaders: at 9 a.m. with the Confederation of Small and Medium Enterprises (Cepyme), at 10 a.m. with the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), at 4:30 p.m. with the General Union of Workers (UGT) and will close the day with Workers’ Commissions (CCOO). He did not attend the investiture on Monday, April 11 either, because that day he had scheduled meetings with the social agents at the party headquarters.

For his part, another of the PP heavyweights who will not be present in Valladolid either will be the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, who has a Governing Council on Tuesday and who also wants to offer an image away from Vox to try to govern alone after the regional elections and mark the ‘case’ of Mañueco as something exceptional in the game.

Cuca Gamarra and Isabel Diaz Ayuso

As the first sword of the Popular Party, Feijóo will send his new general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, to Valladolid. Although Mañueco hinvited to his investiture all the regional presidents of the PP, only that of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has ensured her presence in Valladolid and will be the only popular representative in an autonomous government. Fernando López Miras, president of the Region of Murcia, will not attend either since it is the Spring Festival in the uniprovincial autonomy. Other regional barons in opposition who have confirmed their attendance are José Antonio Monago (Extremadura) and Paco Núñez (Castilla La Mancha).

On Wednesday the advisers of the new Government take office

The investiture will take place eight days after the inauguration, which took place on the 11th, avoiding Monday the 18th as it is a festive day in several autonomous communities. Everything seems to indicate that this Wednesday the 20th will be the date on which councilors of the coalition government take officeso the first ordinary Governing Council of the new Executive will be on Thursday 21.

So far, the names of the three men chosen by Vox for their ministries are known: Gerardo Dueñas for Agriculture and Livestock, Mariano Veganzones for Industry and Employment and Gonzalo Santonja for Culture and Tourism. In addition, Juan García-Gallardo will be the vice president, with functions, but without powers.
Thus, everything points to the man from Salamanca will break parity in the Executive againas it did in 2019, since it would have to appoint five women at the head of the seven ministries that the PP will manage.
