Cantabria’s acting president, Miguel Angel Revilla, said on Tuesday that, as leader of the regionalist party, he does not intend to “obstruct” the formation of a PP government in the region, following its “spectacular” result in the election. Because the PRC is “not a scavenging party” and so that the community is not “contaminated” with the PP-Vox pact.
“I, who above all have defended this land, I am going to try to make it governable,” he assured in statements to the Espejo Publico program on Antena 3, collected by Europa Press.
However, he did not want to “push forward” his idea about the governance of Cantabria after 28M – where the PP has won the election but without an absolute majority – and he will make it public in the Executive Committee of the PRC which will be held this year. Thursday.
Yes, he has advanced that he will try “by all means” that Cantabria “is not tainted” with the PP-Vox treaty, since Abascal is an “anti-autonomy” party of Cantabria and with other “constituents that are in antipodes”. of PRC”.
After acknowledging that he has done “a good job” for “so many years” in which he has managed to “put Cantabria on the map”, Revilla has stated that he does not intend to “obstruct” the PP government. which he considers “sensible” because in politics “you have to cooperate when you have to cooperate and you have to oppose when you have to oppose.”
In this sense, he has assured that he will return to the Parliament of Cantabria–“It is very worthy to be a deputy”– and that he will make a “transition” to the PRC because “I am not going to attend anymore”. himself again” “to leave a party that can continue to act and collaborate so that Cantabria is a little bigger every day”.
“No one likes defeats but I naturally face them because in politics such things happen and enthusiasm must be contained and defeat must be accepted.”
Choice: “An early resignation”
On the other hand, when asked about what he signs for the PSOE in the run-up to the July election, Revilla assured that President Pedro Sánchez, “is clear that he has lost the election, whether he calls him now or In December.” “This is an early resignation,” he insisted.
“Think: I’m going to lose now and I’m going to lose in December; I save myself this pain of having to put up with the opposition that asks me to change elections and partners to green,” Revilla said. .
And to this is added a fact “that will inevitably happen” such as the “cuts” that have been approved by the European summit, which “are going to put a ban on this open bar that we have in the pandemic.” “Some money is gone, and Sanchez has to announce it as president of the European Union. And then he says, better let Mr Feijoa announce it,” he said.
The regionalist believes that Sánchez “had already thought it out” to push the election past 28M, and that he knows “there is a lot of anger in the PSOE”, especially from regional chairmen and “responsible” positions. , who “complain a lot that it is a person who makes decisions in a circle that hardly reaches anyone”, which “makes them very confused; very angry”, he assured.
When asked about the fact that Sánchez has not contacted the socialist barons after the elections, Revilla has said that he has not called them either, but that PP president Alberto Núñez Feijo has encouraged him. “It is a great thing that the opposition calls you,” he mused.
And, in that sense, he said that Sánchez is “a very special man”. “I’m concerned about how the party leaves, because they’re not only going to lose the election: what’s left is scorched earth,” he admitted, “individualism, arrogance, no good.”
According to Revilla, “it all started with the Catalan process” and the PSOE’s compromise with parties with a “tremendous legacy like Bildu” which “weighed down completely” the Socialist Party. “I understand Pedro’s ambition to become president but he has lowered the PSOE’s expectations.” However, for regionalists, the “weighing down” of socialists throughout the legislature is “the change of Pedro saying he was going to govern alone and then doing the opposite.”
That is why the “tide” of PP is “rising” and with the “stimulating factor” in the case of the PRC that it has been a partner of PSOEs in Cantabria. “The coming national elections have made these (autonomous and municipal) a bipartisanship with a vote for the PP for change”, he noted.
