“With this Government (the one chaired by Sánchez) we already know what there is,” proclaims Santiago Abascal in the central act of the weekend prepared by Vox. The declared intention of the ultra party was to publicize its programmatic proposal, with the secret desire to overshadow the PP convention in which Casado threw himself in a torrent to reoccupy the political space that Vox’s coffers have treasured over the years. The festive event this weekend has not achieved a resounding full as was the intention of the organizers who, in the end, have been forced to give away tickets.
With Vox, that maxim of Abascal could be applied because with his party you also know what there is. Almost nothing new in its “Agenda Spain”, distributed in a paper version to those who have come to IFEMA to enjoy political speeches, regional food, a play area for the “little ones” of the family and even a concert. of music. The document, by the way, indicates the total or partial prohibition of reproduction of the work without the prior authorization of its authors, although the ultimate intention is to make the proposals known and even if it was distributed to the national media.
Headed by a letter from Santiago Abascal to the “dear compatriots”, the list of measures proposed by Vox is concentrated in 20 different sections, although there is little new in his analysis. Among the concrete measures that the text proposes, the devolution of the powers of Education, Health and Justice to achieve a unitary State. And in this sense, it also calls for the elimination of historical rights of some communities and also that of the autonomous police.
In addition, it demands the repeal of the law against sexist violence and all legislation related to it as well as all those of historical or democratic memory (which have not yet been discussed in Congress), which it calls “Herod law”, that of the abortion, euthanasia.
It also seeks to prevent access to public health care for those who have not legally entered Spain and to prohibit public health from carrying out sex change operations, abortions and euthanasia.
Although Vox has not renounced public subsidies and despite the fact that even Santiago Abascal received a salary from a public foundation, the party insists that subsidies to political parties and unions should be eliminated.
He wants the outlawing of parties that are against the unity of Spain, the repatriation of those he calls “menas”, as well as the closure of the centers that host them. The party also calls for the immediate expulsion of illegal immigrants; the outlawing of any NGO or entity that collaborates with illegal immigration and the prohibition of access to public health for undocumented immigrants.
And more: the reduction of corporate tax; the depoliticization of the boards of directors of the electricity companies; the change in the system for electing members of the Constitutional Court; the defense of hunting, the creation of a family ministry and the closure of fundamentalist mosques, among other proposals.
