The former spokesman of Unidas Podemos in Congress, Pablo Echenique, accused against the Congress of Deputies for adapting the room for the swearing-in of Princess Leonor when they did not agree to do so so that she could access it with her wheelchair and pick up. he sat.with the rest of his bench.
Echenique criticized it by publishing a message on his profile on the social network, citing the ‘historical heritage and now another Congress led again by the PSOE breaks the WHOLE TABLE AND TRIBUNE for the monarchy.’
Also, Echenique added that “that’s what it’s like to not have blue blood.” The former spokesman of Unidas Podemos stated that “I am sure that if my last name was Borbón – or if I was a representative of the PP or PSOE -, they would not have called ‘historical heritage’ that puts the rights of a tree bank above people’s rights”.
Echenique repeatedly requested that the chamber be adapted for wheelchairs during his time as a representative. The Lower House has included some changes to facilitate the access of many representatives with physical disabilities, but it is not fully adapted to their needs so as not to change the inheritance value in space.
New decoration of the room that will receive Leonor
Now, at the moment of the impending swearing in of Princess Leonor, the room has been prepared for the occasion. The room will be decorated for the first time on October 31 to receive the future Queen of Spain and see her swearing in the Constitution. The wooden tribune, with its seats and balconies, was dismantled, and the 350 seats were replaced with 600 seats so that the guests could follow the ceremony more comfortably.
