This episode comes just hours after the same venue also saw the debate cut short when Vice President of the Council Juan García-Gallardo (Vox) called the former Vice President and current Cs lawyer “idiot”. and “alleged criminal”. Francisco Igea, while he was in the speakers’ gallery.
A little before two o’clock in the afternoon, when the last point on the agenda had already been debated, amid the existing murmur, and just after United We Can spokesman Pablo Fernández had finished speaking, interrupted by several members of the government and by the spokesman of the PP, Raúl de la Hoz, the vice-president of the Cortes, Francisco Vázquez (PP), consulted the lawyer when he was heard saying in background: “I’m about to adjourn and we’ll resume in the afternoon, who the fuck….”.
“I am about to suspend the session and we will resume it in the afternoon, screw them…”.
Francisco Vazquez (PP)
“The session is suspended for 15 minutes”, declared shortly after Francisco Vázquez, who after closing the microphone said in a low voice: “fuck it”.
This led to the confrontation between Pablo Fernández (UP), García-Gallardo (Vox) and the spokesman of the Popular Group, Raúl de la Hoz. Fernández ha cuestionado que el nuevo modelo de elección de senadores will derivar en casos como el vicepresidente, al cobrar “sin hacer nada”, que va a las Cortes a hablar “cuando le quitan el bozal” y se dedica a “insultar à la la people”.
Given these remarks, García-Gallardo reprimanded him from his seat and Pablo Fernández challenged him to stop speaking “for the bottom” and to take advantage of the fact that as a member of the government he may request the floor to intervene. “Courage and courage”, he challenged him, persuaded that PP and Vox are trying to make the Cortes their “farm” and a “pigsty”.
From his seat, the PP spokesman told Fernández to leave the speaker’s platform because he had already made the “videos” to use on social media, to which the United We Can representative replied that he didn’t need videos: “You’re nobody to command,” he added.
“Stop fooling around,” we heard from a seat in the hemicycle, which generated even more tension and ended the temporary suspension.
Pollán returns and asks to speak García-Gallardo
After the announced quarter of an hour, already with the president of the Cortes, Carlos Pollán (Vox), at the controls after having been relieved by Vázquez (PP) at the time of the interruption, the session resumed with a call for “respect” and to “order”, in the words of the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly.
Then the vice-president of the board of directors, Juan García-Gallardo, asked to speak “due to personal references” and complained about the “insults” and “attacks” directed against him and his party by the mixed group and the PSOE and defended that they have the “right to exist” as a party.
without alluding to his confrontation yesterday with Igea, whom he called “idiot”, García-Gallardo said: “As a coalition government, as a party and I as vice-president, we have suffered ad hominem attacks, provocations and insults from the mixed group and the PSOE which are totally unacceptable and deeply embarrass me. “
“Let’s start making it the house of the word again,” said the vice president, who asked to admit the debates his party raises on issues such as “gender ideology” and to avoid transforming the Cortes in “a pigsty”.
Then he asked for the word Iga (Cs), to recall that “only one person insulted a prosecutor and it was the vice president”, while in a later shift, with calmer spirits after the pause, the socialist prosecutor Luis Briones He resumed the discussion on the forms used in the hemicycle to ask the president of the Cortes “respect and fairness” towards all the parliamentary groups.
“What happened here is an embarrassment and a discredit for this Chamber”, he summarized, convinced that the vice-president of the Cortes had not been “up to what is presumed” and that it is the Vice-President of the Council who must analyze “what he does” because “he is largely responsible for what is happening”.
