Sánchez praises the coalition government after the abstention of UP with the audiovisual law

The Chief Executive, Pedro Sánchez praised his partners at United We Can and the coalition government this Fridaywhich he has defined as a “great team”, one day after the minority partner of the Government avoided supporting the audiovisual law approved in the Council of Ministers by voting differently from the PSOE.

To date, they had differed in the sense of vote in other initiatives, such as proposals not of law or admission to processing of legislative projects at the proposal of the groups, but no normative texts from the Council of Ministers in which both parties sit.

However, the government has denied that the coalition is at risk. In his intervention during the presentation of the Strategic Project for the Social and Care Economy in La Moncloa, Sánchez dedicated a few minutes at the beginning of his speech to praise the work of all members of the Executive and has made multiple mentions of the “Progressive Coalition Government.”

The Chief Executive has indicated that “the progressive coalition government” works “above any adversity and difficulty” that Spanish society is going through with empathy, social dialogue and proximity. “It is evident that neither Spain nor the first progressive coalition government in the country’s democratic history have made things easy for them. First the pandemic and now the war,” Sánchez said.

For its part, United We Can has expressed that it voted abstention this Thursday as a result, since “it did not want to reverse the PSOE amendment that hands over Spanish audiovisual production to large private television stations and that puts independent productions at the feet of the horses”. However, they argue that the party was “loyal and responsible with the Government” allowing with his abstention that the law went ahead.

Sources from United We Can admit to TVE that they hesitated until the last moment and that they decided to abstain when they saw that the law was no longer in danger due to the abstention of the PP. Minister Alberto Garzón has lamented the lack of agreement with the PSOE, although he points out that “these differences must be normalized.”
