Pablo Casado en rueda de prensa

Casado proposes to Sanchez a "crash plan" with 10 points "urgently needed" to mitigate the economic effects of the coronavirus and keep employment

Is willing to negotiate the proposed measures and others if they benefit the productive sectors, workers, companies and the self-employed.

He announces that the PP will request the appearance of Sánchez in the Cortes to explain this crisis but adds that he understands that he does so when the figures recommend it. "Parliamentary action should not divide the unity of action in the fight against this health crisis," he says.

Ensures that the PP will not behave as did the opposition of the PSOE in the crisis of Ebola and SARS.

Launches a message of tranquility and confidence in the "excellent" Spanish healthcare system and its professionals.

He emphasizes that the Popular Party supports and will continue to support to try to boost the Government's action and shows its concern that the Executive is going behind the events.

Reach out to Pedro Sánchez, offer the loyal collaboration of the autonomous communities governed by the PP and ask for greater coordination after the disagreements of the last days within the Government.

Ensures that the PP maintains the "prudence" regarding the government's performance but believes that it is "good" that public officials transmit a message of tranquility.
