“I am convinced that now, or later, the next government in Spain will be from the PP.” This is how sure of his project and his game Alberto Núñez Feijóo has shown himself this Sunday. One month after the most complex investiture debate that the Popular Party has faced so far, its leader has opened the new political course surrounded by her territorial barons except those of Madrid, Valencia, cantabria y The Riojawith the conviction that it will be the year in which he becomes Prime Minister.
Feijóo returned to his land and to a place marked by symbolism for the PP, the Castle of Soutomaior who rehabilitated Mariano Rajoy being president of the Provincial Council of Pontevedra, to launch a frantic countdown to get the investiture. For this, he has surrounded himself with his hard core and the bulk of the territorial barons, Juanma Moreno, Alfonso Fernandez ManuecoFernando López Miras, Maria Guardiola, Jorge Azcon y Marga Prohens.
Significant were the absences, however, of the regional presidents of two of its main strengths, Madrid and Valencia, Isabel Diaz Ayuso y Carlos Mazonas well as the leaders of Cantabria and La Rioja, Mary Jose Saenz of Buruaga y Gonzalo Capellan. In his absence, he was supported by former Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and members of the National Steering Committee, Borja Semper o Cuca Gamarra.
Feijóo wanted to make a show of force and it came out round, with a security in his political project that does not make him forget that the investiture of the days 26 y 27 of September can be unsuccessful in the absence of four supports to add to the 172 already guaranteed. In any case, “although it is not an investiture in the short term, it will be the first stone of the next Government of Spain.”
Núñez Feijóo will begin a round of contacts this week to guarantee the investiture that he has been commissioned Philip VImeeting “with the political groups who want to speak” and “with all the regional presidents who want to contribute”, with the intention of being “the president of all Spaniards and not the president of some Spaniards in conflict with the rest”.
