SPANISH Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez used his platform at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday to warn against allowing far-right political parties into government institutions.

The leader of the Socialist Party (PSOE) said that the extremist parties were a “very real threat” to democracy, and went so far as to say that they could destroy “the European Union from within” in statements that were collected by the Spanish news agency EFE .

Sánchez commented in English on a day in which there was a dispute between the Junta de Castilla y León and the central administration in madrid on the right to abortion.

Last week, the deputy prime minister for the northern area of ​​Spain, Vox politician Juan García-Gallardo, announced that all women seeking termination in the region You would be offered the opportunity to listen to the fetal heartbeat and view a 4D ultrasound before proceeding with the procedure.

The announcement, however, was quickly denied by the president of Castilla y León, the Popular Party politician Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, who stated that no additional measures of this type would be taken.

In Davos, Sánchez stopped short of calling Vox by name. However, he said the threat from extremist parties was especially dangerous for “countries where these far-right forces have the support of the main conservative parties.”

This was a veiled reference to the coalition between the PP and Vox in Castilla y León, an agreement that seems to be under threat since the abortion dispute broke out. Vox threatens to suspend him if the PP does not fulfill its ‘promises’ to act to reduce the number of dismissals.

Castilla y León is currently the only region where Vox is in power in coalition with the PP. Since the far-right group began to gain popularity in Spain – it is currently the third party in the Congress of Deputies after the PSOE and the PP – it has supported the formation of PP-led administrations in Madrid, Murcia and Andalusia, and It has also had a presence at the local level.

No working majority

However, it could play a key role in the upcoming general elections, which will take place at the end of this year. The current government is a coalition of the PSOE and its junior partner Unidas Podemos. But the administration lacks a working majority, so it must negotiate with smaller parties to pass laws.

In the upcoming elections, one possible outcome is a coalition agreement between the conservative Popular Party and the far-right Vox.

The latest survey by the CIS public research institute, released this Wednesday, shows that the PSOE would win an election if it were held today, with an advantage of 1.7 points over the PP.
