The president of the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, maintained this Monday that if the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont decides to reach an agreement with the acting head of the Executive, Pedro Sánchez, his people would call him “botifler”.
“When I can agree with others, I do so and I also say it very clearly, without being a collaborationist. If tomorrow Puigdemont, let’s say a case, makes an agreement, his people are going to call him a collaborationist, well, ‘botifler’,” he proclaimed in a event from Alarcón (Cuenca).
During his speech, the Castilian-Manchego president denounced the “great fallacy” that consists in Spain of “exaggerating plurality, diversity, to break unity”, while defending that “the plural, the diverse, can only be preached regarding a unit.”
However, García-Page believes that the fact of speaking between different parties should not be seen “as a negative fact.” “Agreeing should be the general rule and not the exception and today unfortunately the opposite happens in this country of ours and I am very sorry because many things come from all of this.”
García-Page has assured that in this country, every time someone talks about plurality, they “start to tremble” because “they say it to have more money, to have more privileges, or to break unity.” “Plurality is based on unity.”
