13 Jan The number of Ministers and the weight of Podemos
How many ministers does Pedro Sánchez require to seem like the wallets of Podemos are few? Today, we know it. 18 ministers and 4 vice-presidencies. A total of 22 members in the Executive.
Of course, last Wednesday was a risky proposal to bet for a government with elephantiasis, especially in the presence of a foreseeable new economical recession, and the need of economical cuts – tax increase, is translated by others – to pay what it was promised.
Perhaps, for this reason, the public presentation of Sánchez’s government began with a truth, an ambiguity and a lie.
TRUTH: the Spanish policy is situated in “the same path of the European one”, where the coalition executives are more common. It’s unexplored territory.
AMBIGUITY: “The government will talk in several voices, but always with the same word”. Ask which is that word, because the word (promise) is very devalued.
LIE: “This will be a legislature of social, territorial and generational dialogue”…”a Spain of moderation”, not of “tension”, a Spain “between collaboration bridges” that steers clear of “vetoes”, “over excitation” and “insult” but in the debate of the investiture everyone put down against the contrary, including the President-in-Office then, and confirmed today.
