Today the first Council of Ministers of the new government of Pedro Sánchez met. The new charges paraded past the doors of the Moncloa with their wallets under their arms and a family photo has been taken which illustrates the changes of the new executive.
Just a day after promising the post in front of the king and exchanging portfolios with their predecessors, Félix Bolaños, Diana Morant, José Manuel Albares, Pilar Alegría, Raquel Sánchez, Isabel Rodríguez, Miquel Iceta and Óscar López posed with their new wallet and they took their places at today’s meeting with the other members of the government.
Despite the revolutionary reshuffle, the parties that supported the investiture of Pedro Sánchez wished to remind the president of the commitments he made when he came to power.
This is the case of Joan Baldoví, who insisted on the problem of funding in the Valencian Community and said that he hoped that “the Minister of Science, who is from Valencia, will be much more belligerent”. This was expressed in Congress after the Council of Spokespersons.
“One of the triggers of this remodeling is the terrible motion of censure in Murcia. I hope that the PSOE will learn the lesson and will know where its majority is and will respect its agreements”, underlined in this regard the deputy of Comprom .
For Unidos Podemos, one of the obstacles remains the housing law, which could not go ahead with José Luis Ábalos in charge of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. Thus, they hope that the arrival of Raquel Sánchez will give a boost to these negotiations.
The spokesperson for En Comú Podem in Congress, Aina Vidal, wished good luck to the new members of the Executive and admitted that she hopes that “with the accommodation and the Minimum Interprofessional Salary (SMI)” the same thing happens with graces.
Regarding possible changes in United We Can, he stressed that “nothing can be excluded” and that the cycle which began “with Pablo Iglesias” could now be closed. A line on which the vice-president and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, also pointed the finger.
For the pro-independence politicians who allowed Sánchez to be inaugurated with their abstention, the main problem remains the territorial crisis. The executive has already approved pardons for the leaders of the trial and continues to bet on dialogue, although it has already made it clear that there will be no amnesty or self-determination, as demanded by the sectors. separatists.
The direction the new government will take in the face of the challenges ahead remains to be seen, even if these changes will shake up the legislature. For the moment, Pedro Sánchez has opted for a more socialist, younger and more feminist executive to face the two years that remain until the next legislative elections.
