it is Never too late to smooth things over. At least this is the opinion of the PSOE. The executive of the socialists in Cantabria decided this Wednesday, against all odds, to stay in the coalition Government with the Party's Regionalist Miguel Angel Revilla. The decision is a course correction to the narrative of the last days, after the socialists threaten to break the covenant with the PRC after the vote against the regionalists in the investiture of Pedro Sanchez. “We maintain our commitment to Cantabria,” he said in a press conference the secretary of the Organization of socialists in the Community, Noelia Cobo, although he also said that they feel “disappointed” with its partner. This decision will be evaluated Thursday by the executive of the formation of the president in the autonomous communities.
The socialist cantabrians gathered at its headquarters in Santander for more than an hour and a half. Nothing made it appear that the decision was going to be to maintain the agreement. In particular, after the regional vice-president and leader of the PSOE regional, Pablo Zuloaga, were to blame Miguel Angel Revilla have left to Cantabria, “in uncertainty.” Zuloaga, has not met with the president of an autonomous region since the first vote of investiture on Saturday, according to confirmed to THE COUNTRY on Tuesday, just when the relations were at its worst.
The reconciliation will not be easy. The stability of the coalition began to falter last Friday. That day, surprisingly, the PRC decided to change the direction of his vote on the endowment. The measure took by surprise the own socialists, who already had the support of the formation of regionalism. It was not for less: the PRC had been the only party, in addition to the PSOE, voted in favor of the president of the Government in the endowment failed of July 2019. However, things changed rapidly. For the formation of Revilla, Sanchez had crossed a “red line” by his covenant with CKD. The decision of the socialists now serves to create bridges with the party of Revilla and thus to maintain the investment agreements that they reached last June with the president of the Government. The executive committee of the PRC had already said they would make it possible to meet with Sanchez in order to give you a channel to the commitments in the region.
In the document that was signed by the regionalist with the PSOE national in June of 2019, the Government committed itself, among other things, to connect Santander with Bilbao by rail before 2023. A historic demand of the PRC. The decision of the socialist cantabrians will be a huge relief for the 15 Municipalities where governing hand in hand with the socialists. In addition, it comes at a good time because tomorrow will meet the Council of regional Government, which represents a first contact between the two partners of Government after the crossing of accusations and reproaches. It is contemplated that the regional vice-president and also spokesman of the regional Executive, Paul Zuloaga give this Thursday a press conference after the meeting of the Government, as it does every week. Everything seems to indicate that there will be a conference routine.
