The president of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas, has stated that if the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, now presented a motion of censure against the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, he would support it. “There are many voters of the PP who do not understand that the obsession of the PP is right now to attack Ciudadanos instead of attacking the Government. In fact, I tell you more, if Casado now presents a motion of censure against Sánchez, I would support it,” Arrimadas has indicated in an interview published this Sunday on newspaper El Mundo.
Arrimadas emphasizes that he would support her “despite what the PP is doing to us” and wonders if “really that the priority of the PP has to be to attack Citizens with what is in front of us?” Likewise, he makes a harsh denunciation of the pardons to the promoters of 1-O: “They have been a spit in the face of Spain.” He also states that “privileges for politicians never solve anything, they always create problems.”
In his opinion, the leaders of the independence process “are now emboldened knowing that they are unpunished, because with this precedent it does not matter what they do, if they go out to the streets two days later.” Regarding the public utility argument put forward by the Government, he says he does not see it anywhere but rather a matter of “personal interest” for Sánchez, whom he reproaches for being willing “to do anything to remain in La Moncloa.”
Bal supports the idea of Arrimadas
The deputy secretary general and national spokesman for Ciudadanos, Edmundo Bal, has assured that the pardons to the leaders of the independence process have been “the last straw” and has reaffirmed his party’s willingness to support a “constructive” motion of censure of the PP against Sánchez.
“I don’t know what else has to happen for Sánchez to realize that he is humiliating our country,” said Bal, who has indicated that if the leader of the PP decides to present a “constructive” motion of censure against Sánchez, Cs would support it. “because what happened to Sánchez with the pardons for the Catalan coup plotters is the last straw”. For Bal, these pardons represent “the greatest humiliation to which our country can be subjected” and he stressed that “we are living a serious, hard moment in history in Spain.”
Gamarra assures that “the numbers do not give”
The spokesperson for the Popular Parliamentary Group, Cuca Gamarra, has responded to Ciudadanos, regarding a motion of censure to the Prime Minister that “the numbers do not give.” “The numbers for a motion of censure do not give,” said the popular spokeswoman this Sunday in statements to the media during the concentration of the associations of victims of terrorism in front of the Congress of Deputies.
In this context, Gamarra has once again reiterated to the President of the Executive that “if he is so brave to pardon those who have been convicted of wanting to break the constitutional order and the model of coexistence, that he be brave and put the ballot boxes so that the Spanish let’s talk “. “What we tell Pedro Sánchez is to resign, to put the ballot boxes and for all Spaniards to speak to say loud and clear if we agree or not with his policy of pardons, since they are based on a great lie to the Spanish during the electoral campaign, “he added.
