The first vice president of the Government, Carmen Calvo, has stated that “it is not understandable or acceptable” the vaccination of infantas Elena and Cristina, because “Being the Infanta of Spain has obligations that entail exemplary“.
Calvo has made these demonstrations in an interview in La Sexta in which he has also remarked that the position of infanta is also “to unite your destiny to the rest, what is it to wait each one until our turn “.
Some statements that have their foundation after the infantas Elena and Cristina admit they got vaccinated against coronavirus in the United Arab Emirates when they came to visit their father, Juan Carlos I.
The first vice president of the Government has reviewed the current situation and, following with the Royal Household, has defended the position of her party of oppose an alleged appearance of King Felipe VI in Congress, because “constitutionally it is not possible”; and has also valued the fiscal situation of the king emeritus with a blunt: “We all have to comply with the law equally. He does too.”
On the situation of the pandemic in Spain, he recalled that the “crucial” thing now is to keep doing things “as up to now, with a lot of responsibility” to avoid a new rally or a fourth wave.
In that sense, she has focused on Holy Week, for which she considers that the most prudent thing “is that we are without moving anything more than what is essential” to face, together with vaccines, what she has described as “the final stretch” in the fight against the pandemic.
Precisely, regarding the vaccination process that is being carried out in Spain, she has been very optimistic when assuring that “although there are some problems with some of them -vaccines-, which will be corrected, I am firmly convinced that throughout the summer we will reach 70 percent protection in our country “.
Prohibition of demonstrations of 8-M
Another current topic that has been addressed in the interview has been the controversy generated after the prohibition of all the demonstrations called by 8-M in Madrid and has defended the “balanced and weighted” position of the Government Delegation.
“Madrid is not just any city. The demonstrations of other years have been spectacular and that is why we have to be cautious. The power of the 8-M is unmatched by anything. The great demonstrations that Spain has seen in recent years are those of 8-M, which is why it cannot be compared with the going out of a group to the streets for any purpose. This is different and you have to be cautious “, he emphasizes.
Calvo has also sent a message, above all, to “the radicalized right-wing opposition.” “One thing is that we cannot encourage in a city as important as Madrid and another is that we are not being singled out, women, equality policies and feminism by the extreme right. The Spanish extreme right has targeted equality policies of sex and advancement in women because they are the ones who are transforming society, and they don’t like that. ”
He has finally defended the “good relationship “existing within the coalition government, and on a hypothetical electoral advance he has also been blunt: “One thing is false news and another is these delusions invented without foundation.”
