Vicente Barrera, the previous bullfighter whom Vox belief her Vice presidency of the Valencian Government after its pact with the PP, has been characterised in latest months by not lavishing itself on the media. The first time he summoned journalists was to criticize Minister Ernest Urtasun's proposal for “decolonization of museums.” The second was this Tuesday, to cost in opposition to an motion by the Carlos Mazán Consell.

Santiago Abascal's get together thus confirms its change of technique within the relationship with the Valencian PP and, particularly, with respect to its position inside the autonomous authorities. If to this point Barrera had solely had good phrases in direction of Mazán, yesterday he launched for the primary time a direct and unqualified assault in opposition to his administration, to instantly accuse him of “buying the ideology of the left.”

The motive is none apart from the presentation by the Department of Equality – within the fingers of the PP – of the brand new model Community satisfaction. It was carried out inside the framework of Benidorm Festand with the help of Mazn himself, as an initiative to embody all actions concerning sexual variety and in favor of human rights. LGTBI.

Although Barrera publicly framed the criticism in a selected occasion and denied {that a} disaster was going to interrupt out within the Consell, Vox sources guarantee that yesterday's unchecking is not going to be the one one. Mazín and Barrera have exhibited complicity in these first months of the coalition authorities. Now, the target of Santiago Abascal's get together is now to ascertain its personal profile in opposition to the PP. And this contains the motion of the Consell.

The pact between PP and Vox had not prevented each events from publicly demonstrating their variations. They have carried out it in issues of autonomous financing or gender violence, for instance. But the discrepancies had not gone past the parliamentary scene or political positions.

They had by no means crossed the borders of the autonomous authorities. It just isn’t a minor difficulty, since it’s what has allowed Mazón to argue that, past the truth that PP and Vox are “different parties”, his was a “single Government.” We should not neglect that each PP and Vox drew blood from the shortage of unity of the earlier leftist tripartite on a number of points, in addition to from the general public disputes between the PSOE by Ximo Puig and the Comproms by Monica Oltra.

This is what explains why the president of the Generalitat already warned in his investiture speech that he would admit the discrepancy, however “being a government and not a bad show.” Yesterday, Mazón diminished the severity of Barrera's criticism to a “personal opinion”, even supposing the sources consulted admitted that Barrera's name caught the PP unexpectedly.

Barrera himself confirmed that the PP was not even knowledgeable of the brand new LGTBI marketing campaign. “They have not counted on us,” he summarized, to which Mazón replied, to questions from journalists, that Barrera's criticism “is not the position of the Generalitat government nor what the Generalitat is going to do.”
