The IU’s spokeswoman Sira Rego said that the PSOE, of Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez has a “golden opportunity” on Tuesday in the session of Congress and can still “rectify and place itself in the position of great common sense existing in the country around solidarity with the Saharawi people”.
The initiative promoted by the United We Can bloc, part of the government coalition, will be discussed in the format of a non-law proposal, which seeks to “ratify a solution to the conflict in Western Sahara within the framework of United Nations resolutions”.
This will be the first vote on this issue in parliament after the abrupt turn of the government of Pedro Sanchez to support Morocco’s position, so “we will have to see what the PSOE’s position is and if it continues to insist on abandoning Spain’s historical position about it,” Rego stated.
In an interview with El Mundo newspaper, the leader of the Polisario Front, Brahim Ghali, denounced the “radical turn” taken by Spain, which recently supported the Moroccan autonomy plan for Western Sahara.
The President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sanchez, will make an official visit to Morocco in the middle of Ramadan on Thursday and Friday, Foreign Minister José Manuel Albares announced.
Besides having the traditional Iftar dinner with the King, Sanchez and his delegation will talk business and ways to expand economic ties.
