Alfonso Rueda becomes president of Xunta, calling political moderation “an antidote to polarization”.

This Saturday, Alfonso Rueda swore on the Statute of Autonomy of Galicia with his position as President of the Xunta and opened his mandate with a call for moderation in politics as “the best antidote to the intransigence, fruitless divisions or polarization that aggravate coexistence.” These elements, he says, already characterize politics “in other places, not in Galicia.” He insisted on continuing his speech from the position of his predecessor in office, Alberto Nunez Feijoo, and argued that the social and economic context makes “moving away from stability more of an obligation than a simple version of government.”

In his speech, he dedicated the recognition to the five politicians who had preceded him as president of Xunta and was moved to thank his father, now deceased, and the rest of his family. After Rueda was accepted in Parliament for the traditional interpretation of the Antergo Reino de Galicia Anthem by the Deputación de Ourense bagpipe orchestra, he confirmed that his experience as number two in Feijóo for 13 years in the Galician government “does not neutralize” “great emotions”, which he says he experienced when he took command. Little known, despite his experience in the regional executive power, he justified himself by the fact that until now he was “little concerned about social significance.” He comes to power after the president resigned for the first time in 40 years of autonomy, in this case heading the Spanish PP.

In front of a large audience, which was attended by all the autonomous presidents of the PP – Alfonso Fernandez Manueco, Isabel Diaz Ayuso and Fernando López Miras, with the exception of the Andalusian Juanma Moreno; former government president Mariano Rajoy; and Alberto Nunez Feijoo, Rueda switched to Spanish to defend “loyalty to the strengthening of Spain and the common European project” and a promise to “never” hide behind plurality in order to “deep into decay”. “We will confirm this – plurality – as a necessary condition for unity.” Without quoting them, he sent a message to the nationalist parties, which he assured that “they use the resources of the state to wear out institutions.” He also defended the figure of Felipe VI and a model “based on cooperation and loyalty to the given word”.

He also responded, without naming them, to opposition parties in the Galician parliament, who criticized his speech at the plenary session on investiture for lack of “fresh ideas” and called him “an accidental president.” Rueda insisted on the idea of ​​stability, which he defined as “a necessary condition for the priority of the real needs of Galicians over dogmas.”

The new president of Xunta, who participated in the 2009 mobilization organized by Galicia Bilingüe, an organization opposed to the teaching of Galician in public education, confirms that he is guided by a “conciliatory and non-conformist Galicianism”.

Feihoo, who was seen flustered during his inauguration, later told the media that the PP should adhere to the model of “coexistence, cordiality and good politics for citizens” despite the fact that in the weeks since he arrived in the presidency The PP has not reached an agreement with the Government and supports the refusals of the previous team. He asked Rueda for “work, dedication and dedication”. This was one of the last actions of the former President of Xunta in Galicia, who is still awaiting the resignation of his act of deputy and the election of a regional senator in the Galician Parliament.
