With this invitation, Figo will begin the round of contacts he will maintain with all parties with representation in Congress, with the exception of the Basque independents from Bildue, who have been excluded because the People’s Party considers that they still believe “the killing had an effect”. political justification.”

According to sources PSOEWhile Figo remained “holed out in the noble floor of the Genoese headquarters”, he would send third parties to meetings with the various political groups.

The numbers do not close
Feijóo was appointed as a candidate for the post last Tuesday by Spain’s King Felipe VI, as he was the force with the most votes in July’s elections. but The leader of the People’s Party must obtain an absolute majority, 176 out of 350 deputies, to be invested in the first vote. The People’s Party has 137 seats plus 33 for the far-right Vox and two regional parties, the Pueblo Navarro Union and the Canaria Coalition, which have announced their support, bringing its number of seats to 172, four out of a long-awaited majority.
If the necessary votes are not obtained on that first attempt, a second vote will take place 48 hours later, in which the candidate will need only a simple majority to be appointed president. And if Figo does not get the election by a simple majority as well, there may be other subsequent votes, which would open the door for the acting head of the Spanish government, Pedro Sanchez, to present himself later for the position.
Sanchez says he has more support from conservatives Since he assumed the presidency of Congress last week With the voices of socialismAnd Sumar’s coalition and the Catalan, Basque and Galician pro-independence and nationalist forcesUntil it reached 178 seats. However, some of these groups cautioned that it is not guaranteed that they will maintain their support for Sanchez’s investment. If, two months after the first vote, there is no elected head of government, new elections will be automatically called in Spain.
