Spain prolongs state of emergency: opposition and civilians angry Abroad

The parliament in Madrid with a narrow majority on Wednesday evening adopted a proposal for an extension of the left government. The state of emergency, which has been in place since mid-March, with strict entertainment restrictions, will now last until at least June 7.

Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez’s minority government wanted to extend the ‘Estado de alarma’ by a whole month. But she didn’t get enough support for that. On Tuesday, however, a compromise was reached on the eve of the vote on a two-week extension with the liberal party Ciudadanos.

The support of the ten liberal MPs, who are now trying to distinguish themselves as representatives of the political center after a shift to the right and the election debacle at the end of 2019, proved decisive: the proposal received 167 votes in favor and 162 against.

Hit hard

With more than 230,000 cases of contamination and nearly 28,000 deaths, Spain is one of the countries hardest hit by the pandemic. The situation has improved in recent weeks. The newly recorded deaths, on Wednesday, 95, were below 100 for the fourth day in a row. The decline is “greater than in other countries such as Italy,” said Health Minister Salvador Illa.
