Santiago Abascal (Vox): “ETA and the Basque separatist party have won the elections”

  • Santiago Abascal and Amaia Martinez go on stage to make the assessment of Vox, and it is clear who commands from the first second: “I will speak the first”, said Abascal, and when Martínez has made the invention to leave the stage, he has said it firmly, “no, no, stay here”.

Abascal responds first to the person who shouts “mission accomplished” (“we have met the goal”) when he goes on stage: “They will forgive me if we are not happy, but the first thing we want to say is that ETA and the Basque separatist party have won the elections”. It also stresses that it has achieved this with the help of the Spanish political class, not least because it opposes the legalization of EH Bildu.

He states that there is no freedom in the Basque Country and that there is still fear. Vox gets 20% more than in previous regional elections. He reminded the 21,000 citizens who voted that “Vox is not going to be a fashion, they are not going to destroy it, and in the reconstruction we are going to undertake in this land you are also the seed of reconquering”.

Then Martinez spoke briefly and thanked the voters and the militants who pushed the campaign. He recalls that in the election campaign they have also had to deal with the “usual attacks”. “Before the worst government possible, we don’t leave you alone,” concludes Martínez.
