The last words of the leader of the Popular Party (PP), Alberto Nunez Feijooabout the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, have warmed up the atmosphere ahead of the appointment in the Senate on Tuesday. The Galician leader compared the leader of the Executive with a dictator by citing a novel by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Moncloa’s response has come from the usual press conference held after the Council of Ministers. “The demonstrations pronounced by Feijóo are unworthy of any political leader of any democratic state. I call on him to rectify and withdraw them,” said the spokeswoman, Elizabeth Rodriguez.
Feijóo said this Monday that “the desire to control all the powers, the obsession with stigmatizing the adversary and above all the desperate attempt to convey to people that there is no other option” that are developed in the novel The Autumn of the Patriarchthey remind Sánchez and his government.
This fact has already generated strong criticism in the PSOE this Monday. “I have heard Mr. Feijóo complain about the insults and he is the one who compares the president to a dictator. Does he talk to us about good manners?” Socialist spokeswoman Pilar Alegría said from Ferraz. In addition, she recommended him to watch the movie gamechangerabout the campaign of American politician Sarah Pallin and her failure as a candidate in 2008.
On how Sánchez arrives at the appearance in the upper house, Rodríguez has highlighted that the Government is very clear what is the roadmap and how to “face this crisis differently”. For this reason, they want to “compare in a calm, slow and pedagogical way” the proposals. He has asked the PP to “be able to propose something.” He has also asked them for “high-mindedness”.
