He accuses him of trying to "boycott" the 'Iberian exception' during the "pulse" with Brussels: "What interests was the PP fighting for?"
MADRID, 6 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has censured that the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, anticipated a recession and has accused him of aligning himself with the interests of the large electricity companies, by trying to "boycott" the negotiation with the European Commission to approve a cap on gas in electricity generation.
In his reply to the leader of the opposition in the plenary session of the Senate convened to address the energy crisis situation and the Government's energy saving and efficiency plans, Sánchez recalled how Feijó assured "that Spain was on the verge of recession", something that "discards the forecast panel of Funcas".
In addition to considering that "the affirmation constitutes recklessness", he has said that with it he sinned in "insolvency and bad faith" because "it damages the foundations of the Spanish economy".
Along the same lines, the President of the Government has charged against other statements by the President of the PP on account of public pensions -- he has reminded him that they do not count in the spending rule, and therefore their revaluation does not have a limit agreed with Brussels --, his confusion about the risk premium and interest rates in his debut in the Senate, or the accusation of leaving the Spaniards "a poof" for increasing the public debt.
On the other hand, Sánchez has criticized that the PP sought to "boycott" the "pulse" of the Spanish Government with Brussels for decoupling the gas in the negotiation of the so-called 'Iberian exception', wondering "what a responsible opposition leader would have done" .
In that position, Sánchez has abounded, in the PP "they were not alone" because "they had the company and the complicity of the large electricity companies that lobbied so that there was no market intervention mechanism."
"I will not say that their position is justified, but it is explained. They were fighting for their millionaire interests. The question is why was the PP fighting, Mr. Feijóo?" Asked the Prime Minister.
