Borja Sémper assures that in the pact of the Extremaduran PP with Vox “there is express mention of sexist violence”
Borja Sémper, spokesman for the PP campaign, defended in an interview with public mirrorthe agreement reached on Friday morning with Vox in Extremadura. In the absence of knowing the details of the agreement, the leader advanced that “there is express talk of sexist violence and women’s rights. Policies on equality, in defense of our civil rights, reside in the members of the PP”. And he underlined : “They are red lines, they are containment dams, not a step backwards in defending these policies that have allowed us to be a better country. “Although in places like the Valencian Community they have accepted an agreement which speaks of “domestic violence ” and not gender.
On the 20th the leader of the Extremaduran PP, María Guardiola, blew up ties with Vox, after the lack of agreement between the two formations handed over the presidency of the Assembly Table to the Socialists. On that occasion, Guardiola maintained his position of refusing the entry of Vox’s ultras into her cabinet, and responded to the threat from Santiago Abascal’s to return to the polls: “I don’t give advice. If it is necessary to go to new elections, he leaves”.
Guardiola finally backed down under pressure from his party from Madrid and allowed the far right to enter through the Ministry of Forest Management and the Rural World, which Sémper himself reduced in his statements to Forest Management. When asked about the change of position of the popular leader in Extremadura, the spokesman defended that “there will be no change in the fundamental principles that María Guardiola has defended”. Sémper assured that “they are adamant and will be respected”. “This is good news for the PP and for the citizens who will not be forced to repeat the elections.”
Sémper has criticized his government partner in Extremadura, Valencia and Castilla y León for the moment: “The lack of respect to which the leaders of vox have accustomed us is public and notorious, I do not deny it. Fortunately we are not Vox, we defend very different policies.
