This is a deal that is incompatible with Podemos.
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.
The candidate of Popular Party (referring to Rajoy) is fully aware that we will not facilitate a government formed either by him–either actively or passively–nor by any other PP candidate. We have not reached the Spanish parliament to play the game of [musical] chairs, or to make the traditional political compromises, and everyone must know this. If there are to be new elections, we will face up to that, and I do not think I need to say it but it is very possible that we will win.
The election represents the end of the two-party system and the emergence of a pole lead by Podemos and Pablo Iglesias which is going to change Spanish politics forever.
New political parties, with a substantial vote base, have emerged from the social unrest in Greece and Spain – Syriza and Podemos – why not in Portugal?
Today there is fresh air in the institutions and probably it's the beginning of change in our country. Now we feel more strength, more capacity to win the general elections against the Partido Popular (Popular Party) in November.
If we look at the situation in Europe though, there's also another interesting phenomenon that's taking place. We're seeing Greece moving towards the East, potentially, with the Syriza government. We're also seeing Podemos, which is gaining power in Spain, also in Hungary. Do you see that there is a potential for Europe to start shirting and aligning itself more with Russian interests?
That's great I haven't seen it.
In other words, the Socialists react, produce antibodies to be able to fight Podemos and survive. Not so the People's Party: its immune system is non-existent, isn't working.
