SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, June 28 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The president of the Socialist Parliamentary Group, Ángel Víctor Torres, has ruled out this Wednesday to present himself to the investiture as the first political force in Parliament, having 23 seats and demanding that the new president, Astrid Pérez, have an “institutional and neutral” role.
In statements to journalists after the opening of the round of consultations to set the investiture debate, he commented that he had reproached him for his speech on Tuesday at the inauguration “amicably” and he was convinced that he was going to “rectify” .
Torres has acknowledged that since election night, when he spoke with the general secretary of the Canary Islands Coalition (CC), he verified the “difficulty” of renewing the presidency given that the CC and PP had an agreed pact even before the elections, something that they certified in the meetings with all the parties and now they already have 38 secure votes by adding the Gomera Socialist Group (ASG) and the Independent Herreña Group (AHI).
Thus, he has said that he will attend the investiture debate with a rigorous, serious, coherent, responsible and demanding intervention”, stressing that the PSOE will be the “main opposition and Parliament party”. “We will defend it as it deserves”, he has aggregate.
Regarding Pérez’s inaugural speech, he has appealed for the “institutional role” that the presidency of the Chamber has had throughout its history to be reserved and to make things “clear from minute zero.”
She has indicated that she does not have “inexperience” and since a “long legislature” begins, she understands that each one “has to be responsible for the role they represent” and she is president of Parliament and cannot “be on the side of any party” – -she is a deputy for the PP– giving as an example that she has seen presidents “recriminating” deputies from their own group.
