SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, March 21 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, stated this Tuesday that the “best news” of today is that the “surreal grotesque” that is the motion of censure presented by Vox, and that is being debated in the Congress of the Deputies, “is going to fail”.
In statements to the media, the Canarian president has said that motions of no confidence are a legitimate instrument and tool that have to be justified and presented with enough votes behind them so that they can move forward.
However, Ángel Víctor Torres wanted to make it clear that “there are motions of censure and motions of censure.” Thus, he pointed out that the motion of censure that made Pedro Sánchez reach the Presidency of the Government served to “regenerate political life in the face of a conviction for corruption of a political party -the PP- that governed this country.”
Torres stressed that this motion of censure allowed that, in the face of the “tremendous” economic crisis produced by the pandemic, there has been a Government that has prioritized the most disadvantaged, applying measures such as the increase in the minimum interprofessional wage, the minimum vital income, the revaluation of pensions or the fight against sexist violence, among other achievements.
Faced with this, the president of the Canary Islands said that there are other motions of censure such as the one being debated today in the Lower House; a “money doomed to failure presented by a far-right party in which it uses a former representative of the left – alluding to Ramón Tamames – that we do not know what he says, what he thinks and what he shares”.
According to Torres, the most important thing is that “luckily” this motion of censure will not go ahead, because if it did, “what we would have in the Government of Spain would be the proposals of the extreme right, which would mean defending the private sector against the public , eliminate autonomies, put an end to self-government and the pillars of the Welfare State”.
