The PP maintains its commitment to use as an electoral argument the controversy over the words of Minister Alberto Garzón on livestock, which the president of Castilla y León, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, began with a tweet with clipped statements about the macro-farms.
Pablo Casado has reiterated this Sunday in León, at the closing of the regional congress of the PP that approved betting on extensive livestock, his request for the resignation or dismissal of the head of Consumption: “We demand the immediate dismissal of the Minister of Consumption, Alberto Garzón cannot not be one more day at the head of the ministry”. He has pointed out that “if Sánchez does not do it, he is responsible”.
The popular leader has pointed out, when asking for more explanations about the controversy, that “it has become clear that Sánchez is not going to dismiss Garzón, but I have my doubts that those of Garzón will not end up dismissing Sánchez. How can you have such a president? weak that he cannot cease his ministers?”
Casado has explained to his party colleagues his commitment to measures for the Empty Spain, rejecting the concept of ’empty’ and pointing to support for the countryside as a fundamental measure, “it is full of wealth, of people who want to stay in their towns, but you need help to do it.
For the president of the PP, “Spanish meat is the best in the world” and “Spanish farmers are the best in the world.” Thus, he has once again insisted that “there are no macro-farms here, there are small and large farms, but they all comply with all guarantees.” For this reason, he has assured that “we will not tolerate anyone pointing them out” and has criticized measures such as the prohibition of wolf hunting north of the Duero, which according to him affects livestock. Casado has accused Pedro Sánchez of mistreating Castilla y León: “this land has been mistreated by Sánchez’s policies for too long, which is not present on farms and in livestock.”
Before Casado, the PP candidate to continue at the head of the Junta de Castilla y León, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, has also once again attacked the Minister of Consumption. “The meat sector is honest, responsible and of quality and Garzón’s statements are irresponsible, he ignores reality. But what is least understood is that Spain is spoken of abroad abroad. Sánchez must dismiss Garzón now, he cannot wait not one more day”, he has insisted on the livestock controversy that he himself started.
Among the allusions at the beginning of the congress of the absolute issue of the PP pre-campaign, the first was made by the spokesperson in Congress, Cuca Gamarra, who attacked the Government considering what happened with Garzón as an ‘anecdote’ in his lousy global management. The mayor of Madrid and national spokesperson for the PP, José Luis Martínez Almeida, for his part, later pointed out that “Alberto Garzón is not an anecdote, it is a misfortune” also pointing out that “the problem is not Alberto Garzón, the problem is the one that maintains him”, alluding to President Pedro Sánchez.
Also Javier Maroto, spokesman for the party in the Senate, followed the path against Garzón, describing him as “the worst minister, because putting a minister on consumption is also an occurrence” and indicating that “Garzón is responsible but the guilty party for allowing it is Pedro Sánchez, who from so much flying so high does not know what happens at the foot of the grass in this land.
