After being invested by Congress and pledging his position before the king, Pedro Sánchez has finalized the composition of his new coalition government, where Yolanda Díaz aims to be one of the vice presidents of the Executive.
Pools suggest Sánchez will continue to rely on his hard core, with a smaller and more politicized cabinet. On the part of Sumar, Díaz has the confidence to maintain five wallets for those who look like names like Monica Garcia or Ernest Urtasun.
Meanwhile, this Saturday, the demonstrations against amnesty, as happened in the Plaza de Cibeles in Madrid, were convened by a hundred civil society associations and attended by ten thousand people in the presence of prominent PP and Vox leaders.
Some of these protesters later headed to Ferraz and also towards Moncloa Palace, which disrupted traffic on the A-6 at the entrance to Madrid, although the police prevented them from reaching the vicinity of the Executive Headquarters.
To survive, Pedro Sánchez must write his new Government
The Board of Congress, which met on Tuesday, has an intense agenda focused on finding acceptance for the processing of the amnesty law in TRIALS, where the PP was previously opposed but could be qualified on the same day supported by a favorable report from lawyers. The new senior lawyer, Fernando Galindo, will sign the legal annotations that will accompany the law, which was registered on Monday only by the PSOE, but it will continue with the support of Sumar, ERC, Junts, Bildu, PNV, and BNG.
The pools continue the composition of the new coalition government of PSOE and Sumar, which could be announced on Monday. On the socialist side, Ribera, Bolaños, or María Jesús Montero are expected to follow, while there are doubts about the permanence of Marlaska and Robles. Regarding the formation of Yolanda Díaz, names like Mónica García and Urtasun are very strong after the controversy with Nacho Álvarez, who left his positions in Podemos after not receiving the support of the ‘purple’ for Sumar’s proposal, who is a minister.
About 1,500 people, according to the government delegation, protested on the sixteenth night of Ferraz, where six people were arrested for assault, public disorder, disobedience, or threats.
Tens of thousands of people protested on Saturday against the amnesty in Cibeles in a demonstration called by civil society and supported by the PP and Vox. Several hundred people also blocked the A-6 to go to the Moncloa Palace, but the police prevented them from passing, and the traffic was restored.
