Alejo Vidal-Quadras, the founder of Vox and former leader of the Popular Party of Catalonia, appeared again on social media to attack “Sanchism” eight days after being shot in broad daylight in the center of Madrid. In a message on the social network
“Democracy can be consensual (EU) or more or less confrontational (Western countries). Sancismo escapes both categories because it turns the electoral adversary into an enemy to be expelled from the system through the destruction of basic constitutional consensus,” said the founder. in Vox, a message to which many politicians reacted, like Feijóo, giving him a “welcome”.
Precisely this Saturday, the leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, reported that he requested a meeting with the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, to “coordinate the institutional response” to the “coup” of the president of the government, Pedro Sánchez, who is subject to the amnesty law. “I asked Mr. Feijóo for a meeting to coordinate this institutional response, the regions, and the Senate,” Abascal explained in the media statements of the demonstration highlighted by Vox.
Abascal explained that there are “legal differences” between Vox and PP on the road where the Senate will proceed with the amnesty, but he emphasized that the two parties should “sit down and talk” about it because it is time to “try to all possible.” “Furthermore, we must consider that we need to take personal risks,” he said in a message to Feijóo.
Regarding the differences, Abascal indicated that while the PP thinks that what it can do in the Senate is “just a procedure”, Vox has “other legal information.” “We believe that the senior lawyer of the Senate can be asked for a report on the constitutionality of the amnesty law, and if the said law is not constitutional, we understand that it should not be processed by the Senate,” he detailed. Therefore, he asked the PP to “sit down and talk about it.” “What we want is to compare it to see who is right, but we believe that we have to try everything possible. It is important for Spain,” he insisted.
The Vox leader also assured that Vox will continue to support “all the mobilizations called by the Spanish” in a “peaceful” way against the amnesty law that represents “the beginning of the end of the separation of powers in Spain and the end of democracy”. “This is an attack on the equality of the Spanish before the law and, therefore, an attack on the country,” warned Abascal, who regretted that Sánchez did not dedicate “not one moment” to the debate on investiture “to explain his change of legal opinion” regarding an amnesty he previously considered “illegal.
“We are facing a president who does not have any kind of doubts and is ready to ignore the Constitution and the country,” criticized Abascal, calling “not to leave the war lost.” To continue this “fight”, he advocated “continuing the resistance with continuous social mobilization”, “attempting a coordinated institutional response” and “talking to everyone about what is happening in Spain with the attack on the independence of the powers and the equality of the Spanish and the Constitution”.
“Vox is doing everything that needs to be done to protect the legality of Spain, national unity, and to stop this coup,” he said.
