Pedro Sanchez does not think about the blockade and the re-election after that The result of the July 23 election. Spain is a parliamentary democracy with its dates and procedures. This democracy will find the formula of government “, this is what the leader of the Socialist Socialist Party took for granted, according to socialist sources, during the meeting he held with the party’s federal leadership. However, the scenario facing the country is one of possible institutional blockade: the winner of the elections, the People’s Party, will not reach an absolute majority even with the support of Vox, UPN and the Canary Islands coalition, while the Socialists, in the event that they receive the support of the ERC, PNV and EH Bildu, will count on the abstention of Juntz About the Vote – an independence party from the party’s executive, Carles, its leader About Justice.
The general secretary of the Socialist Workers’ Party celebrated that “11 million people have voted for Progress,” referring to the 7.8 million votes his party received and the 3 million votes for the Somar project, Yolanda Diaz. After the disaster of the municipal and regional elections of 28 AD, Sanchez has improved the result of the general election in April 2019, It won 7,513,142 votes and 123 seats, more than one seat pending the recount of foreign votes.
“Spain said no to regression and regression and PSOE is a reference in Europe and the world. It is not that we have reached 30% of the vote, we have reached 32% “, the president emphasized, according to the same sources, in a closed meeting that lasted two hours. Sanchez predicted a “quiet August” and Ferraz’s leaders believe that the next month should be used for all parties to make a calm reading of the result, “from PP to Junts”. “Let the people rest and enjoy the holidays,” Sanchez concluded in a brief intervention, in which he indicated that the Cortes would be formed on August 17.
Waiting for the steps you take Alberto Nunez Figo, The Socialist leadership sources consulted believe that the People’s Party candidate will not present himself for a failed position. The PSOE is not, in any case, considered to facilitate this installation of Feijóo, although it does use the fact of being the most voted list. Although this issue, according to these sources, was not touched upon in the executive meeting, the most important critical figures agree to dismiss this possibility. Both Ferraz and the PSOE’s regional leaders are aware that the People’s Party did not allow them to rule in Extremadura and the Canary Islands, even though the PSOE was the first power there in 28-M, as in provincial capitals such as Valladolid, Toledo, Burgos and Hundred Municipal Councils.
Another argument used by the PSOE is that the PP did not facilitate the inauguration of Sanchez in the summer of 2019 – there were repeated elections in November – in contrast to what the Socialists did in 2016, when they facilitated the inauguration of Mariano Rajoy (with Pedro Sánchez in opposition). The decision to open the channel to the PSOE was the source of the worst of its recent crises, with Sánchez’s resignation as party leader in a convulsive Federal Commission on October 1 of that year. And his re-election with more than half of the socialist struggle votes after seven months. According to socialist sources, one of the chief executives said, “Now the People’s Party has to face its own contradictions.”

The PSOE leadership, who started the meeting happily pounding the table and celebrating the outcome, did not do a detailed reading of the results in each community. Dozens of members who asked to speak after the secretary general highlighted numbers achieved after the legislature marked by the pandemic, the economic impact of the war in Ukraine and the attacks Sanchez has suffered from the opposition in a deeply polarized climate. “Today there was nothing but enthusiastic euphoria and a desire to celebrate,” summed up a member of the executive staff, as former President Jose Luis Rodríguez Zapatero was thanked for the campaign’s contribution. Zapatero made 14 marches and traveled 6,000 kilometers. Nobody said anything about the non-participation of Felipe Gonzalez, who did not explicitly ask to vote for his party. The meeting ended with applause.
The Socialists were the most voted party in Catalonia, the Basque Country, the Canary Islands, Navarra and Extremadura. PSC’s strength in Catalonia was decisive (rising from 12 to 19 seats). They also achieved more MPs than in 2019 in the Canary Islands (5th to 6th), the Balearic Islands (2nd to 3rd), Cantabria (1st to 2nd, attracting PRC voters), Madrid and the Community of Valencia (10th to 11th), the Basque Country (4th to 5th) and Navarra (1st to 2nd). PSOE retains the seats it had in Castilla y León (12), Murcia (3) and La Rioja (2) and loses four in Andalusia (25th to 21st), three in Galicia (10th to 7th), two in Aragon (6th to 4th) and one in Asturias (3rd to 2nd), Castilla-La Mancha (9th to 8th). In a seat in favor of the Valencian Community due to the fall of the population.
