The commission also discussed approving the vote of Juntos’s deputy, Eduard Pujol, who voted yes for Vigo, by mistake. If it is counted as “yes”, it will be 173 “yes” versus 177 “no”.
This time, Feijóo had one less vote against him because the vote of a lawmaker from the separatist party Together for Catalonia (JxCat) was deemed invalid.
Speaking at the beginning of the inauguration session in the House of Representatives, Vigo admitted this He attempted to introduce “a first-party government supported at the ballot box”, in which he suggested that “no one can be more powerful than anyone else”.
“I offered you six state charters, I proposed a new process of understanding and we discussed almost everything respectfully in this room, but I did not ask you to abandon your commitments or principles to your constituents.”He continued to be his candidate for prime minister.
“Some MPs in this chamber are criticizing me for being the same supporters I had months ago, the same people who cannot stand behind what they said then.”He also criticized.
He also noted that “the first glaring mistake would be to form a government based on lies,” referring to the Socialist Workers’ Party led by Pedro Sánchez.
However, he admitted this even before the vote There is no longer “the possibility of any candidate winning because there is no longer the possibility of deception or lying.” “Given the assumptions of minority and the privileges and dignity that all Spaniards enjoy, I conclude by addressing the citizens. Today I will not be able to give them a government, but I believe that we have succeeded in giving them security and hope.”
In the first vote, on Wednesday, the plenary session failed to install Figo by 178 votes against and 172 votes in favor from 350 Spanish deputies.
It should be noted that the leader of the People’s Party received the largest number of votes in the July 23 elections, but without an absolute majority, and in Wednesday’s vote he only received the support of 33 other deputies from the far-right Vox party, in addition to two deputies from the People’s Party. Two regional parties in the Canary Islands and Navarre.
Deputies from left-wing parties, as well as nationalist and independence forces from Catalonia, Galicia and the Basque Country, voted against Figo.
With the new failure of Vigo’s election, the King of Spain, Felipe VI, must then nominate a new candidate for the position. The current head of Spain’s government and leader of the Socialist Party, Pedro Sánchez, has assumed over the past few weeks that he can muster the support necessary to lead the executive branch again.
The House of Representatives has until November 27, two months after the first vote on Figo’s nomination, to elect a new prime minister and avoid a repeat of the legislative elections in January.
