Therefore, the scenario of urgency in setting the investiture session in the event that the candidate is Feijóo is removed because “time will be needed to talk to the groups and forcing a candidate to speak to the parties in hours or days would mean starting in an unequal situation compared to other candidates with more time”. Rey will entrust him with the formation of the Government as a second option.

The Galician politician has also highlighted his distance from the PSOE, whose potential pro-independence allies keep their demands on the table and They haven’t even been to the Zarzuela Palace to report their plans. “The Socialist Party is at a distance from an amnesty, from an independence referendum and from making inequality between Spaniards official,” he criticized.
