Garamendi believes that the formation of the government should not depend on minorities

Date: September 26, 2023 Time: 08:57:45

The consequences of last Sunday’s elections resulted and the general reactions from different political and business areas have not been long in coming. This time, Antonio Garamendi, the president of the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE), has come out and criticized the fact that the formation of the Government will depend on minority parties. For this reason, he has urged to speak with the two parties that have made up 73% of the seats in these general elections (PP and PSOE) in order to form a stable government.

“When you see and analyze these elections and see that 73% of the seats are in the hands of the PP and PSOE, it really surprises you that we have to be aware of minorities that can influence such a decisive and important moment for our country.

The business leader has stressed that the word “blocks sounds like a blockade” to him and he believes that Spain “should be on another wave”, for which he has once again appealed “to social cohesion and responsibility” since the two big parties sit down to negotiate a stable government for Spain.

Yolanda Diaz’s response

Garamendi’s statements have been answered by the second vice president and acting Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, who has reproached the business leader “for having a problem with democracy and institutionality.”

“In a democracy, you have to look for the votes where you have them and it is clear that there has been a campaign with two blocks: the PP, in which we clearly knew that he was going to govern with Mr. Abascal, and the PSOE and Sumar block (…). Sometimes, in democracies, a small group decides many things. This is democracy”, Díaz replied in statements to La Sexta collected by Europa Press.

In this sense, Díaz has urged Garamendi to “respect democracy and the votes of each political formation” and “not to diminish democratic voices.” “Let’s respect article 99 of the Spanish Constitution, which says that we are not a presidential country and that we need to seek votes through political negotiations,” insists the acting second vice president.
