UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
Spanish Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez promised on Sunday that his coalition government with the leftist Radical party Bodemos would adopt “one speech” after previous conflicts between the two parties.
“This is a diverse government, a coalition government, but it is determined to be united,” Sanchez told the press, after King Felipe VI was officially informed of the composition of his government.
Sanscher said that the first coalition government since the end of General Franco’s dictatorship in 1975 will “take advantage of different ideas but it is going in one direction. It will speak with many voices but always with one speech.”
On the other hand, he promised that Parliament would focus on “social, regional and intergenerational dialogue” so that the country, which has suffered from years of crisis, demanded the secession of the Catalonia region, “Spain is based on coexistence, not disharmony.”
Sanchez was forced, after his modest victory in the November legislative elections, to agree with the Podemos party despite his statement in September that having ministers in his government from this organization would deprive him of sleep, and he then shed light on the nature of his positions on the Catalan issue, which He represented an obstacle.
Bodemos will be one of the four deputy prime ministers, and will be charged with social rights.
The government, which will be sworn in on Monday, won the confidence of deputies in a narrow margin on Tuesday, following the abstention by the Catalan Republican Party, which supports the secession of the region.
In exchange for its abstention, the Catalan party obtained a promise from the Socialists to start negotiations between the central and regional governments to discuss a solution to the “political dispute” in the affluent region in northeastern Spain.
The far-right and far-right deputies of the “Fox” party rejected the agreement between Sanchez and the separatist party.
On Sunday, thousands of “Fox” supporters demonstrated in Madrid and other cities to denounce a government “in the hands of the separatists.”
