Feijóo: “I ask the postmen, regardless of their bosses, to distribute all the votes before the end of the mandate. If they are not paid, we will do it in the first Council of Ministers”
The PP candidate, who was in charge of the Post Office, has promised that if he gets to the government he will pay “overtime for all the postmen in Spain” in his first Council of Ministers. Alberto Núñez Feijóo called for a large turnout and reminded that this Thursday is the last day to vote by mail. “I ask the postmen of Spain to work at their maximum, morning, afternoon and night, and even if they do not have sufficient reinforcements and know that they keep something sacred for the Spaniards, which is their vow. I ask that, regardless of your bosses, distribute all the votes before the deadline expires, so that we Spaniards can vote.
Correos said today it has hired 19,400 workers to boost mail-in voting. The public company said it would continue to hire as many staff as needed.
Feijóo and former president José María Aznar shared a demonstration in Murcia where they joined forces to demand a useful vote for their party and criticize Vox, sometimes without mentioning Santiago Abascal’s ultra party, for blocking the investiture of the popular Fernando López Miras in the region. “If Sanchismo and Vox want to continue as allies, leave them be. If Sanchismo and Vox want to continue demonstrating that they have the same interests, so let them. If Sanchismo and Vox want the Sanchista government to continue, let them say so,” said Alberto Núñez Feijóo. “If they keep putting sticks on the bike’s wheels, the bike will go forward and the sticks will fall off! This is not the time to put the sticks, whoever put them is wrong!” He accompanied Aznar.
López Miras was left two seats short of an overall majority on 28 May. Vox’s abstention is enough for him to govern alone, but the far-right has voted against it on two occasions because it wants the popular people to put them in government, in addition to signing an agreement with which they intend to repeal, among other issues, the law protecting the Mar Menor.
