Vox capitalizes on Spanish government’s mishandling of Corona crisis
Spain's government led by Pedro Sanchez has been severely criticized for the choices made during the Corona crisis. Sadly, the country has been singled out in Europe for the high number of victims with 28 000 deaths and 234 000 cases.

It is therefore impossible not to find errors in the initial management, such as the unfortunate and and dramatic decision to allow celebrations for Women’s Day, despite the known dangers.
The weak government led by the Spanish Socialist Party and Podemos risks losing the already limited support of the population, not to mention the discontent within Parliament, especially from independence parties. At least one party in Spain, Vox, has followed the public mood.
Thousands of Spaniards protested against the government’s handling of the Corona crisis and the subsequent lockdown measures this weekend, demanding Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s immediate resignation. Around 6 000 people waving Spanish flags and led by Vox, came together in their vehicles to abide by social distancing measures.
The party’s leader Santiago Abascal denounced the Sanchez administration: “This government is directly responsible for the worst management of this crisis on the entire planet. We will never forget what they have done.
“It is time to make a big noise against the government of unemployment and misery that has abandoned our self-employed and workers. Let your desire be heard for the resignation of the government.”
Vox was initially configured primarily as a cultural movement, interested in giving a vision of the country that has freed itself from the progressiveness of the left to bring to the attention the issues of deep Spain, between rediscovering traditional values and the struggle against immigration.
Vox seems to have every chance to emerge victorious from this health crisis with his own politicians still “clean” and unassailable and with a government repeatedly put in difficulty as a result of its choices.
The people of Spain increasingly distrust the executive’s moves, while Vox has been proposing solutions and benefitting from every – even slightest – mistake.
