  • He reproaches Sanchez for not seeing "the purple elephant with a big yellow ribbon", in clear allusion to Podemos and the pro-independence supporters, whom he has not named during his speech, and calls him "a wild card in the deck that has too many creditors with the that he will not be able to fulfill. "
  • He extends his hand to Sánchez for questions of State, but not "to forge a government against the State, nor to influence the differences and the scars." "We extend our hand to seek progress in Spain, not to vindicate the failed policies of the left, to begin to govern and have a loyal opposition, but not to revalidate, as it did in the motion of censure, one of the darker stages of our recent history, "he says.

  • He blames him for having so many metamorphoses that the citizens do not know exactly if we are in the phase of No means no, or the Yes because yes. "In him it is not no, they came to talk about the moral rottenness of the party that now demands support," he added.

  • He wonders if he really wants to be president of the government after spending three months "playing cat and mouse" and reaching a debate without a government program, "ignoring his partners with a medley to save the news".
  • He asks Sanchez who he really is, where his supports are, what he is presenting for the investiture, or until when he is going to put on false moderation. He reproaches him for not having dedicated a single mention to Catalonia, the words of praise of Otegi and that he has governed all this time, with alliances "installed in illegality".
