The PP will promote a Senate investigation commission for Félix Tezanos to report on the “irregularities” committed by the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) that he directs. The deputy secretary of Culture and Open Society of the PP, Borja Sémper, announced that the popular party will force the creation of a commission of inquiry in the CIS, where its president will be summoned to appear. In the Upper House, Feijóo’s party has an absolute majority, which will make the commission continue, although Sémper admits that they brought it there because, at the moment, it is the only one “in operation” and they hope it will be will be launched.as a commission, which is “immediately.” “You know that this organization is very important, it is an organization that has been questioned for a long time” – in reference to the CIS where, the famous points out, there are even doubts about “its formula for hire CIS members.”
In this context, Sémper defended that this investigative commission was “reasonable” “given the size and relevance of this body” and in the face of “suspicions and doubts that exist about its professional functioning.” “It makes sense to investigate and find out in detail and in depth how it works, what differences exist and, if appropriate, the irregularities that may exist,” insisted Sémper.
Regarding the list of those who appeared, Sémper considered “fundamental” that Tezanos “provides an account of the functioning of the institution and responds to reasonable doubts.”
“Settings” in the game
The celebrities are prepared no matter the scenario that comes up. If the investiture of Sánchez finally takes place, they are already working on the scenario of using the opposition and also ready in case of repeated elections. Regarding whether there is a four-year term, Sémper’s opinion is that the socialist candidate is not a president of the government but has power and considers that for this reason, if he achieves the investiture, he will stay for four years even knowing that. the term is not easy.
Feijóo confirmed earlier this month that there would be “adjustments” to his team, a decision PP leaders had been waiting for since election night. The changes, as reported by the party, are subject to the clarification of the Spanish political panorama and whether the PP leads the opposition.
On November 6, Feijóo convened the National Board of Directors, but “ordinary”, the largest group between congresses, but it was not expected that the scenario would be clear then and many barons ordered that the re-organization – also the team will be on that date. In addition, another body, the Executive Committee, is responsible for validating Feijóo’s proposals in this regard.
The most widely expected of the PP is that Cuca Gamarra will be one of the protagonists of the reorganization. It is expected that I will no longer hold the position of Spokesperson of PP in Congress. The decision depends on Feijóo, although many are betting on his continuation as the party’s number two.
Feijóo is also expected to end the tricephaly of Genoa, where Elías Bendodo, as general coordinator, and Miguel Tellado, deputy secretary of the Organization, share similar functions with Gamarra. Pedro Rollán joined them, leading the Autonomous and Local Coordination.
The spokesperson of the PP criticized that the acting president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, and the vice president and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, made their agreement with the government for the investiture without answering the questions of journalists, something he described which is “very serious. ” and “very worried” because it “undermines democracy. In addition, he ridiculed the announcement with an example: “You announce when you get married, when you divorce, but not that you are still married, ” in relation to the agreement between Sánchez and Díaz that has not been broken and that. they announced that it continues.
In a press conference after the steering committee of the party, Sémper criticized the “obscurantism” and the lack of “transparency” in which the negotiations with the independents for the investiture were carried out. And he explained that in the case of PSOE and Suma “everyone already knows that they will stay married.”
Therefore, he emphasized that the Spanish were “in the dark” about what the independents were talking about and stressed that it was “not only unprecedented” but a “scandal”, especially if, in his opinion, “it relevant. for Spanish politics” is to know what was negotiated with the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont. “What really matters is what Sánchez is willing to give up to become the president of the Government and what he gives to this end,” said the spokesperson of the Popular Party.
