He claimed “They ban plays and comics in Catalan… Go out and vote for diversity in our country” because “Spain is better, we earn more when we are diverse”.
Political agreement “You Catalans will vote”

Catalans to vote.” In this way, the presidential candidate strengthened her commitment to dialogue aware of the campaign without commitment to the self-determination referendum, but only to endorse the agreement that emerges from the dialogue table that is in a state of hibernation.
Feijóo is having a bad week

But he also warned that things are “not going well” for the candidate of the People’s Party, Alberto Núñez Figo this week, as his absence in this debate has something to do with it. As he said, Figo “only knows how to do one thing in politics, lie and lie and lie” and “had a bad week”, so they “will lose the election”. He reiterated, “They are nervous, they thought they would be swept away and that things were not going well for them, and they would lose the elections.”

Barcelona’s candidate, Aina Vidal, explained that Pedro Sanchez could not win without Yolanda Diaz and that they had a heavy responsibility “which is to win”. “The right will not win if we go to vote,” she declared, but he threw the weight of the Catalan Minister of Transport, Raquel Sánchez, to Rodalis: “It is a pity that we had the first Catalan Minister of Public Works and she was so capricious. It was Rodalis, Madam Minister!” I protested.
