The PP was “surprised” or better, ironically “surprised” by the agreement that the PSOE and Sumar reached before an investiture of Pedro Sánchez.
Before the date for this investiture and after the negotiations between the two parties that everyone knows how they will end, it is the acting president, Pedro Sánchez, and the acting second vice president, Yolanda Díaz, who today Tuesday publicly signed the agreement reached.
The two groups emphasized that with this agreement they intend for Spain to be able to “continue to grow sustainably and with quality work, develop policies based on social and climate justice, and expand rights, feminists achievements and freedoms.”
Popular sources assured about this that “once we have recovered from the surprise that the agreement between the PSOE and Sumar brought to the PP, from the PP we want to value the negotiating capacity of Yolanda Díaz, who until at the last moment showed himself to be inflexible and completely ready to give up being vice president and go to the opposition as long as he does not renounce his iron principles and that they prevail over his agreement with the socialists”, and after this failure they added: “Now that Sánchez has achieved, against the odds, the support of Sumar, our country has overcome a debate with the Spanish in the suspension in recent weeks. For this reason, they hope that today Francina Armengol “will receive permission from Pedro Sánchez to call a full investiture session.”
This date is not important because the investiture of Pedro Sánchez will be reached after a failed attempt by the PP candidate, Alberto Núñez Feijóo.
The king proposed Feijóo as a candidate on August 22 and a day later the president of the Congress, Francina Armengol, announced that the plenary session would be held on September 26 and 27. However, in the case of Sánchez, the deadlines are running different
Felipe VI proposed the socialist leader on October 3 and after three weeks it is not yet known when it will be submitted for approval or not to the Chamber. Perhaps with this agreement, time will speed up because the deadline of November 27, the day that if no president has been appointed, the Cortes will be dissolved.
