Pedro Sanchez quotes
If no one agrees with Rajoy, that's his problem and his responsibility… I say to him and the right-wing parties that it is up to them to reach an agreement, but the leftists will not support them.
Therefore, I believe that the democratic regeneration that the Spanish people are asking for – with all the respect for the seven million Spanish citizens who voted for the Popular Party last December – needs the Popular Party to turn into the opposition.
Spanish democracy has to conclude the election of the head of the government with a more 'pluralist' and 'complex' Congress. All the parties working for the change have to understand each other, in order to achieve this change. The Socialist party is ready to pull Spain out of the deadlock into which Rajoy put it.
We want a government supported by the Popular Party, the Socialist Party and Ciudadanos. Because these three political forces agree on the fundamentals: the unity of Spain, national sovereignity, the equality of all Spaniards, our position in Europe, in the eurozone, and in the fight against terrorism.
The socialist party rises to the challenge with Spain so that the citizens of this country can have a government more than 40 days after the election and that rules through dialogue and for the benefit of all. It's a new political era, with a parliament with more than two parties, with new dynamics, new problems and new solutions.
If there was something important I learned from my parents, it was that I should keep my word and my convictions.
My position is that if Rajoy and the Popular Party are unable to lead, at this time requiring an ability for dialogue, then the Socialist Party is ready to deal firmly with its legitimate responsibility to offer Spain an alternative government.
And that's why I encourage everybody to have a good electoral day and, above all, I encourage everybody to vote on this historic day.
If you continue as prime minister… the cost to our democracy and the institution you want to represent is enormous, because the prime minister must be a decent person, which you are not.
You should have resigned, assumed responsibility personally and left the premiership, Mr. Rajoy. On December 20, Spaniards will have to choose freely through their votes who will be the next prime minister. But I warn you that if you continue as prime minister, the cost to our democracy and the institution you want to represent is enormous because the prime minister must be a decent person, Mr. Rajoy, and you aren't.
