Vox proclaims in Congress that Lorca would vote for his party and Podemos replies by linking them to his execution


The deputy of Vox, Mireia Borrás, has proclaimed this Wednesday in Congress that the poet Federico García Lorca would vote for Vox because he “loved Spain”, statements that the general secretary of the United We Can confederal group, Txema Guijarro, has replicated, linking to Vox’s ancestors with the execution of the poet.

The confrontation took place in the Permanent Delegation of Congress when Borrás reiterated the same words that his party partner, Macarena Olona, ​​wrote in a message on Twitter on the occasion of the 85th anniversary of the murder of the poet from Granada, in which he assured that ” today, Federico García Lorca would vote for Vox “.

Borrás’s words have generated protests in the room and one of the most angry voices has been that of Guijarro, who places Vox on the extreme right and has linked the formation led by Santiago Abascal with the national troops that shot the poet: “You killed him,” he snapped.

In the controversy, the first vice president of Congress, the socialist Alfonso Rodríguez Gómez de Celis, who was presiding over the session and who has asked Guijarro to withdraw his words, has intervened.


But the leader of Podemos has denied that while Borrás did not withdraw his on the vote of García Lorca, which he considers “untimely.” Thus, Gómez de Celis has chosen to make the decision that Guijarro’s comment be removed from the Journal of Sessions.

Compromís deputy, Joan Baldoví, has referred to this controversy in a subsequent debate and has said he agrees with Borrás that Lorca would vote for Vox, “but b”. “Lorca would throw them away,” he said sarcastically.
