The meeting that Alberto Núñez Feijóo had requested from Pedro Sánchez in the framework of the round of contacts to try to gather support for his appointment as Prime Minister will finally take place this wednesday at 10 am in the Congress of Deputies.
As confirmed by the PP, the winner of the general elections contacted the PSOE general secretary on Monday to “raise the suitability of holding a meeting” between the investiture candidate proposed by the King and the leader of the second party. The communication occurred through WhatsApp.
In his first message, Feijóo asked Sánchez have a phone talk to deal with this matter. The acting president agreed on the convenience of holding that meeting, but preferred that the cabinet directors of both agree on the most appropriate date, as specified by sources from the Genoa headquarters.
In the PSOE they point out, in turn, that Sánchez offered three alternatives to hold such a meeting immediately: this Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Finally, it was this morning when it was agreed that the day of the meeting would be Wednesday, August 30, at 10:00 am in Congress.
In the PP they frame this meeting in “the democratic normality that has to mark the agenda after the general elections of 23-J” and “in the institutional framework prior to the investiture debate set for September 26”.
