The president of Cs announces the reform of the Spanish law so that those fled from justice can not attend the elections

"It seems a mockery to democracy that Spain has to pay more than one million euros to Puigdemont to finance his candidacy." This has been stated by the president of Citizens (Cs), Albert Rivera, during a hearing held at the headquarters of the European Parliament in Brussels. "One of the first initiatives that we are going to take to the Spanish Chamber is the reform of the electoral law so that those fugitives from justice prosecuted for certain crimes can not attend elections until their situation is resolved," the president of the orange formation.

Rivera has appeared accompanied by the head of the delegation of Cs in the chamber, Luis Garicano, and the MEPs who will compose the delegation, who reminded that they must "defend in Europe what we have defended in Spain, the good image of our country , in addition to the interests of a reformed and modern Europe that defeats populisms. "

The Spanish liberal leader has been invited to a meeting of liberal prime ministers of Europe, "to discuss what decisions the liberals are going to make and explain that our position is that of the pro-European majority." "The strength of the Liberals will be decisive in electing the European Commission and the European Council, because the European bipartisanship continues to lose support as the liberal family emerges from the political center with 114 MEPs and an unprecedented growth," Rivera concluded.

El vicesecretario de Organización, Javier Maroto.


Maroto defends that the coalition government model of the PP "is predictable" and that its first interlocutor will be Citizens. Add that in those places where it is necessary to expand the majority, the PP will be willing to seek agreements as long as their model of government is respected.

He thinks that the pacts have to be "coherent and understandable for the people who voted for us" and they need to be "humble and generous". "An agreement must be able to be explained with clarity and transparency and in it, everyone has to feel like a winner". He insists that in the Community of Madrid and the City Council the first force of the center-right bloc is the Popular Party and that "gives us all the legitimacy". Díaz Ayuso and Martínez-Almeida are therefore "the reasonable option".

It puts in value the harmony between the territorial leaders and the national leadership and emphasizes that the ideological contract of the National Convention is with which the PP is negotiating the investiture pacts.

Finally, Maroto applauds the investiture pact for the change of government in the Junta de Andalucía and affirms that "the key is not with whom you agree, but what and for what you agree".

The president of our party, Santiago Abascal, analyzed from the podium the electoral results in the company of the rest of the members of the VOX board, among which stood out the already MEPs Hermann Tertsch, Mazaly Aguilar and Jorge Buxadé.

He affirmed that a new political stage had been opened in Spain in which VOX has been fully consolidated in the vast majority of institutions despite the attempts of the stigmatization of the vote by the left, the media and the " right coward ", which appealed to the useful vote. In this way, our voice is assured, without intermediaries or interference, in a clear manner, and without the mediation of the major media.

In addition, VOX representation was emphasized in a large number of Autonomous Communities, which now includes the 24 deputies, the three MEPs and the presence in the Senate. To these numbers it is necessary to add the votes of VOX thanks to which our formation is decisive in 30% of provincial capitals when it comes to choosing future mayors.

Abascal continued his speech saying that VOX will enforce their votes, that no insults or stigmas about the formation and their voters will be tolerated and that we committed ourselves to maintain a respectful and flexible line of party with the rest of the formations.

The statement ended with a premise that has remained firm since the formation of the party: "We will fight every day and in all institutions to prevent the left and separatism from destroying Spain and our freedoms."
