Pablo Echenique, spokesman for Podemos in Congress, expressed his surprise after learning that "more than 3,000 people" were following the flight of the "corrupt Bourbon."

This was remarked by Adriana Lastra at a press conference in Ferraz, insisting that she was not going to "say anything different" from what had already been expressed by her fellow party members, collects EP.
"The position of the PSOE is that we believe that the current Royal House and King Felipe VI are taking steps in the direction of accountability," Lastra said. “It is a decision of the King and an issue that only the Royal House can express itself against and we respect any decision made by the Royal House, we have nothing to comment on,” he insisted.
From the PP, after the steering committee held this Thursday, the general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, "welcomed Don Juan Carlos to his country" and wished him "a good stay in what is his home", collects EP. Gamarra criticized the positions contrary to the arrival of the King Emeritus issued by the Government, accusing him of "not leaving alive" any "State institution" "If it is not one part, it is the other part that weakens what is the structure and the institutions of our state," he added.
Gamarra stated that "the Government has nothing to say about whether or not a Spaniard can come to their country." “The only thing missing was that he could not when he considered it appropriate,” he added.
