A group of PSOE deputies suffered egg throwing this morning when they were having breakfast in a bar near Congress around 07:30 in the morning. One of the eggs has hit the head of the socialist deputy for Teruel Herminio Sanchowho was the protagonist in the investiture of Alberto Núñez Feijóo after voting ‘yes’ by mistake for the Popular Party candidate.
As EL MUNDO has learned, Sancho was accompanied by PSOE deputies María Luisa García Gurruchaga, Daniel Senderos and Vicent Sarrià, when they were recognized by a group of people opposed to the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. The deputies have been scolded and have suffered eggs being thrown, which have ended up impacting at least the deputy for Teruel, a rancher and mayor of the small municipality of Jarque Mosque.
The deputies were recognized from outside the bar and began to be scolded. After notifying the National Police, the agents intervened to escort the deputies and accompany them to Congress. On that journey the eggs were thrown, which the socialist spokesperson Patxi López later referred to while the PSOE deputies gave Sancho a standing ovation.
The Deputy Secretary of Organization of the PP, Miguel Ángel Tellado, has also expressed “solidarity” with the socialist deputy and has “condemned” the attack suffered this morning. The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has also assured in a tweet that these events “are not admissible.”
The deputies have reported what happened and the Police are already investigating the altercation, which occurred amidst a very strong security device, with more than 1,500 agents deployed around Congress to avoid incidents.
