The moment of tension in the Congress of Deputies is the one that was experienced when the Minister of Finance and government spokeswoman, María Jesús Montero, criticized Pablo Casado for treating her “with a certain intellectual superiority”.
During the debate on the draft general state budget, the opposition leader questioned Montero’s management as advisor to the Junta de Andalucía (a position he held between 2013 and 2018). “You have already left the legacy in the Junta de Andalucía that we all know and we are recovering it with great effort. Will you leave the legacy of PSOE Finance Minister left by Mr. (Pedro) Solbes and Ms. (Elena) Salgado? ” , it got broken.
Casado also indicted the management that the government of Pedro Sánchez made of the coronavirus crisis. In response, the minister challenged him to talk about college degrees and how each got them.
“You employ a certain intellectual superiority, you question the capacity of this executive, mine, in front of Casado. Are you referring to the titles? Are we starting to remember each other’s qualifications and how we got them? Montero answered in turn to answer.
The bench of the “ popular ” did not welcome these words of Montero with good taste and they began to cause a sensation to the point that the president of the Congress, Meritxell Batet, had to attract the attention of the PP deputies and ask the silence. .
