PSOE add pressure on Rajoy over Sarkozy

President Sarkozy’s earlier comments are still causing a headache for the Government which it could do without. This time, the main opposition party, the PSOE are calling on the Partido Popular to reject the French premier’s words and to call him to task.

Soraya Rodríguez, PSOE spokesman in the Congress of Deputies, called on Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to defend Spain and its economy on an international level.

Rodríguez has been quick to capitalise on the discomfort that Rajoy and his colleagues must be feeling about Sarkozy’s blunt turn of phrase. Although public ally they contain to insist the French president means to draw comparisons with the poor economic policies of the previous socialist government, in private many will be wondering why their Conservative cousins and allies in the European Parliament have chosen this difficult time to knock the Spanish economy even further. Many will also be asking why Sarkozy did not chose to air his views on the failure of the previous government ahead of the last election.
