About a month and a half ago I was amazed at the relief with which the PNV president bragged about stopping the right. This is a must-see, a party whose theme was Jaungoikoa eta Lagizarra! What will you believe? Andoni Ortuzar What is the right thing to do?
There’s no way to know, although he probably made progress during his visit Carles Puigdemont in his kingdom of Waterloo. The photo from the summit was impressive, a bit exaggerated. They were both a little disheveled, although Andoni was a little worse, in an impossible blue, with a tie hanging down, in style Trump card, to the step. And the shoes, what shoes, my goodness, with white laces that set the tone.
They were accompanied by Jordi Turull and from Joseba Aurrekoetxea. We must give credit to the Basques for the gesture of placing the Ikurriña in the center of the room where families usually have the television, while the signatory, more discreetly, kept the EU flag company. Every time I see this flag, I remember the efforts of the PNV at the time when the Union had twelve member countries and the Jeltzales expressed their pursuit of the “thirteenth star”. You actually meant “the thirteenth,” but it’s so easy to confuse the partitive with the ordinal. ruffian Despite his educational efforts, he still doesn’t differentiate between them Esperanza Aguirre during an appearance in Congress.
A first problem that may surprise inexperienced observers is that, despite the efforts of both parties to impose Catalan and Basque as official languages of the Union, the two have understood each other in Koine, which they both speak, and I would say that one , who speaks best, at least Ortuzar, who was illiterate in Basque until he started learning Basque to take up his post as EITB director. It’s a shame that they didn’t set an example of openness to other languages and, for example, blew the interview in Gomero. With their translators or with their earbuds, whatever you prefer.
Sigma Dos has prepared a poll conducted between September 13 and 15 that gives no reason for optimism to the PNV, which loses six points and six seats (from 31 to 25) in the face of the 2024 regional elections to its main rival EH Bildu, the Had 21 parliamentarians, wins six seats and comes to 27, two above the PNV.
There are a number of overlapping interests in this matter: Hours before he flew to Brussels, Ortuzar had an interview with Room in the Basque Parliament. The main goal of both is investment Pedro Sanchez. The same thing happens when the two meet in Waterloo: both want to support each other and support Sánchez. However, Puigdemont wants to weaken Pere Aragones and Ortuzar wants to do the same with Arnaldo Otegi’s team. The idea that the PNV is the most effective manager of Basque interests in Madrid is being diluted, especially among the youngest. On the other hand, no one guarantees the PNV that next year it will not have an alternative EH Bildu-PSE Podemos that will take it out of Ajuria Enea and approximately repeat the move of Maragall. I have already announced it. I would like to be the first to congratulate Ortuzar if necessary.
