Triumphalism has dominated the speech of almost an hour with which Pedro Sánchez has commemorated this Wednesday in the Congress of Deputies, before the Socialist Group, the fourth anniversary of his arrival at La Moncloa after the motion of censure against Mariano Rajoy. The President of the Government has reiterated and emphasized that his is an "exemplary" cabinet compared to that of the PP, which he starred in, has said "a dark moment in Spanish politics" and that he was, in his opinion, conniving with corruption. Faced with this, he assured the Socialist deputies and senators, the PSOE Executive "reinforced the institutions of Spanish democracy" and began to "respect the division of powers", something that, previously, the Secretary General of the Socialists considers, not it happened
At no time in its parliament has there been the slightest mention of its coalition partner for two years, United We Can, which was also decisive with its vote in the 2018 motion of censure going forward. Nor has he mentioned the rest of the groups that gave him their vote, particularly the Catalan and Basque independentists, and with whom he has later agreed on the last two General State Budgets.
His words, on the contrary, have been totally focused on attacking the PP and other opposition groups, whom he has accused of "twitching" the political situation in the face of, he said, an "exemplary social government" like his. In this context, and as he announced this Tuesday from Brussels, Sánchez has announced his intention to extend beyond June 30 the plan of economic measures in the face of the war in Ukraine, of which he has once again highlighted the bonus of twenty cents per liter of gasoline to combat rising prices. Alluding to the opposition to demand their support, he said sarcastically, and received a standing ovation from his supporters: "Let's see if we have more luck this time and those who say they love Spain prove it by approving measures that are good for the Spanish people."
