“We have a case for a while.” The PP believes that Ximo Puig must give immediate “explanations” about the “corruption” case revealed this Monday by EL MUNDO. After knowing the appearance of dozens of invoices that reveal bribes to positions of the Valencian PSOE and a possible illegal financing of said party, the general coordinator of the PP, Elías Bendodo, has demanded that the president of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, detail “today ” the details of “this situation”.

Feijóo’s number three has also called on Pedro Sánchez to make public “the position of the PSOE at the federal level.” This newspaper has published that the businessman Jaime Febrer allegedly bribed political officials for years to get urban developments. In addition, there is the circumstance that Febrer has Manolo Mata as a lawyer, a former strong man of Ximo Puig.

“If the PSOE wants to talk about corruption, it already knows where you can talk about corruption,” said Bendodo. “This case at least requires explanations. With the plots that affect the Socialists, I only ask them to be as quick in asking for explanations as in other cases. More transparency, clarity and many explanations are needed,” he stressed. Above all, to account for “how deep this case is.”

As this newspaper has revealed, the case has had an important advance when the dozens of invoices that appeared in the records were revealed in the summary. The Prosecutor’s Office believes that they are false and that they cover up bribes to socialist officials in exchange for urban awards and possible illegal financing of the party.

In a press conference at the headquarters of the PP, Bendodo has made the socialists ugly who talk about the past scandals of the ‘popular’ and not their own. “This weekend up to nine ministers have been in Andalusia and they have spoken, among other things, about corruption. In Andalusia. You have to have courage for a socialist to come talk about corruption in Andalusia: the ERE, the Faffe, the courses of formation, 700 million defrauded, condemned with a final judgment and two former presidents of the Board awaiting sentence”. “You have to be daring,” stressed Bendodo, who has given a long change when asked about the PP scandals.

In the so-called Azud operation, the former sub-delegate of the Government in Valencia, Rafael Rubio, and the one who was responsible for finances of the José María Cataluña party have already been involved. Meanwhile, the lawyer of the main person under investigation is Manolo Mata, who until a few weeks ago was Ximo Puig’s number two in the party as deputy secretary general of the Valencian PSOE (PSPV) and spokesman in the regional courts.

On the other hand, Bendodo has announced that Feijóo will hold rallies on his own and will only coincide with Juanma Moreno in the central act of the campaign, in Antequera (Málaga), on June 12. The president of the PP will visit six provinces before 19-J and the general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, the other two: Córdoba (June 13) and Huelva (14). Feijóo will be in Malaga on June 3, in Granada on June 4, in the afternoon of the 11th in a place to be determined in the province of Cádiz, in Jerez de la Frontera on the 12th, in Jaén on the 15th and in Almería on the 16th, according to PP sources.

For now, no national leader is expected to participate in the closing of the campaign. And the barons will not hold a second round of rallies: “The strategy designed by the Andalusian PP was to have the regional presidents in pre-campaign,” Bendodo assured. On Tuesday, Isabel Díaz Ayuso will visit Cádiz, the province that elects the most deputies: 15.

“The national PP is at the service of Juanma Moreno to achieve a large majority that allows him to give peace of mind to Andalusians as a whole”, insisted Bendodo, who has criticized the Government for being “doing business with the desperation of the people”, for collect more thanks to the inflationary spiral and not return it to the citizen’s pocket, in his opinion.

In Andalusia, the PP has “a vocation to govern alone”. “We aspire to a broad majority, which gives Andalusians peace of mind. As broad as possible”, so as not to depend on Vox and not have to give it entry to the Andalusian Government. The polls are flattering, but Feijóo’s ‘number three’ conspires against relaxation: “The polls have to serve as an incentive to continue working. Much less has he won anything.” “A survey is a PCR of a moment, nothing more,” Bendodo has metaphorized.
