Pedro Sanchez polarizes the marketing campaign to open a spot with Carles Puigdemont and win extensively in Catalonia within the ultimate stretch for the May 12 elections. Aware that Salvador Illa It will not be sufficient simply to win on the polls to achieve the Generalitat, the president of the Government yesterday claimed a snug victory with the identical mobilization of 23-J – in the neighborhood he achieved nearly one million votes, 35.7% – to keep away from a pro-independence majority that erases the PSC from the equation.

The broader Illa's victory, the extra stability and energy she must advance. We should win extensively, way more than within the final elections, Sánchez warned yesterday concerning the outcome 4 years in the past, when the Catalan socialists tied in seats with ERC and had no risk of governing within the face of the advance of secessionism.

Now, the post-election state of affairs appears simply as devilish as then. An advanced arithmetic to which we should add the warnings from Puigdemont himself, who has already threatened to let the PSOE Government fall in Congress if Illa permits herself to be tempted with a method much like the one which introduced Jaume Collboni to the Mayor of Barcelona. because of the help of the PP and the frequent. Also the truth that Sánchez wants the Catalan bastion after the poor outcomes of the municipal and regional elections, a circumstance that can solely be achieved if the PSC leaves the independence motion at a distance on the polls.

There had been two right-wing presidents, in Moncloa and Palau, who led Catalonia to chapter; and we might be two socialist presidents who will make Catalonia advance in rights, alternatives and coexistence, Sánchez stated yesterday about Mariano Rajoy and Puigdemont himself at an occasion in Montmel earlier than 2,000 attendees. A transparent and unambiguous polarization technique, which the President of the Government used to switch his wrestle with the PP to Catalonia and ask for the vote for Illa within the midst of this context.

In truth, the socialists mix a discourse based mostly on administration – extra typical of Illa – with the harangues and proclamations of Sánchez and his mud concept, which he attributes to PP and Vox. In this sense, yesterday the socialist chief went additional, sought direct hand-to-hand contact with the favored folks and even identified the previous president of the Government, José Mara Aznarbecause the hypothetical reason for the harassment that in his opinion the PSOE Government and Unidas Podemos suffers.

An concept that he used, once more, to ask for the vote regardless of having nothing to do with the Catalan debate itself: To Mr. Aznar, who stated that 'whoever can do, let him do', we’re going to reply: whoever can vote , to vote, to vote for the PSC and Salvador Illa as president of the Generalitat. And, after monopolizing the beginning of the marketing campaign along with his menace to resign, Sánchez not solely positioned himself on the middle of the controversy however in contrast the PP with Vox and urged the voters to resolve between democracy or mud.

Sánchez's technique was rapidly contested by Alberto Nez Feijo. The president of the PP defended that the true manufacturing facility of hoaxes is the PSOE and that it’s spreading them in the course of the Catalan electoral marketing campaign with the intention of breaking, dividing, fractioning and subtracting the vote that’s towards the sanchismo. As a final instance, he gave the intense diplomatic disaster that opened with Argentina after the insult uttered by the Minister of Transport, Oscar Puente, to Javier Mileyand demanded that Sánchez resign or go away instantly.

Furthermore, he warned the constitutionalist voters that the PSC is keen to grant Puigdemont the whole lot he asks for in change for Sánchez remaining within the Moncloa. On the opposite hand, the PP doesn’t promote its voters like Illa, nor does it promote its nation like Sánchez, he assured in Badalona (Barcelona) along with the mayor of town, Xavier Garcia Albiol, and the PP candidate for the presidency of the Generalitat, Alejandro Fernndez. In the third metropolis of Catalonia, ruled by Albiol with greater than 50% of the votes, the Popular Party gathered 3,000 folks in its central marketing campaign occasion.

In the midst of this wrestle between Sánchez and the PP additionally in Catalonia, and confronted with the worry that the socialists would consolidate themselves in first place, Puigdemont known as for mobilization from the south of France and appealed to critics of the method: Better to go to vote with doubt than to doubt what Catalonia we can have with Illa. The Presidency of the Generalitat can’t be docile or surrendered to the priorities of those that have pursuits exterior of Catalonia, he warned concerning the socialists.

ERC, one step behind in all of the polls till this midway level within the marketing campaign, redoubled its criticism of Junts and the PSC. So a lot in order that the president of the Generalitat and Republican candidate, Pere Aragons, had to make use of the cuts from a decade in the past to ask for the vote. If you vote for the cuts, the cuts will return. If ERC doesn’t proceed, the initiatives of the previous will return, he assured along with Oriol Junqueras.
