Spain In Grasp Of Far-Left Socialist Pedro Sanchez

Spain is once again in the grip of far-left radicals as four months of stalemate ended Thursday. The controversial Pedro Sanchez secured another term as prime minister when a majority of lawmakers approved the formation of a new government.

Despite widespread opposition that drew millions to the streets in protest, Sanchez cobbled together enough leftists to get 179 votes of support. That was out of 350 members of parliament.

He included separatist leaders willing to fragment the country in his coalition. All seven members of the Catalan Junts party came to his side after holding the power to either put Sanchez back in office or force new elections.

With his contentious promise of amnesty for separatists and communists, Sanchez emerged victorious. Millions consider his actions a coup against the wishes of the people.

All parliamentary conservatives voted against the socialist leader.

His leftist colleagues suffered embarrassing losses in national and local elections in May, leading to Sanchez calling for snap elections. He declared that his countrymen must decide which forces will lead the nation, though his later actions took the choice out of their hands.

Voters responded to the opportunity to change directions with a split decision. Neither the left nor right secured a majority, leading to the stalemate that was ultimately decided when Sanchez cast his lot with anti-Spanish separatists.

The amnesty deal he reached would cleanse the records of hundreds of Catalan separatists after the region’s illegal 2017 secession effort. Former Catalan regional President Carles Puigdemont is a hated figure by many Spaniards and is a fugitive from justice. 

Both the Catalan and Basque parties agreed to support Sanchez but said they will force him to honor his promises to them. If not, they will withdraw their backing and throw the country into further turmoil.

The Basque separatists further declared their intention to keep conservatives out of government through a second Sanchez term as prime minister.

Sanchez previously declared he would not allow a vote that would divide Spain into multiple nations. However, the deal with the Catalan separatists included permitting talks on holding an authorized referendum within the country’s constitutional framework.

The European Union is reviewing the agreement Sanchez reached with separatists, and Spain’s judiciary is heavily critical of the arrangement.
