ALCALÁ DE GUADAÍRA (SEVILLE), Dec. 3 (.) –
The Deputy Secretary General of the PSOE and Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has vindicated this Saturday the “quest for coexistence” that her party has said is pursuing, referring specifically to the “conflict” in Catalonia and ensuring that in the face of its strategy the PP “he lives on the backs of the confrontation” to get votes, an attitude that he has assured “they share” with the independentistas and “those who escaped from the border.”
Montero has defended in a public act, on the occasion of the centenary of the socialist group of the Seville municipality of Alcalá de Guadaíra, that both the parties and the rulers have to work “to increase coexistence among citizens”, also “and above all” of those who “think differently”.
“It means sewing, uniting, looking for meeting points where others only see differences, and it means affection, trust and also being able to look for elements that allow us to unite, dialogue, agree, and that is what we are doing”, he has maintained, both in Andalusia as well as in Spain, where he has assured that the PSOE intends to “create conditions for coexistence and therefore so that clashes between territories are not provoked”.
Something that, in his opinion, is the opposite of what the PP is after. “There are some –the PP, the right wing of this country–, who live permanently on the back of the confrontation between the territories and citizens, who seek to polarize the conflicts, who believe that in fighting they will find a voting niche”.
Montero stressed that this also “happens with those who fled the border, with (the former president of the Generalitat, Carles) Puigdemont, with the independentistas, who believe that seeking confrontation is what allows them a handful of votes.” “They share the idea that the more confronted we are, the better for them,” said the minister.
In this sense, the head of the Treasury has maintained that the Government, “having inherited a problem, a conflict that the PSOE did not create, quite the contrary, which helped to solve it”, has “assumed” the “search for points of coexistence “. “There will be no freedom if we try to impose our models, that everyone thinks how everyone thinks they have to think,” warned Montero, who pointed out that for the right “only those who think like them fit.”
