Spanish Parliament rejects Sanchez’s decision on Western Sahara, and the government justifies

Spanish Parliament rejected on Thursday, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s decision on Western Sahara, calling for a return to support for self-determination.

Parliament criticized for the third time in two months the role of Pedro Sanchez, while the Spanish parties, including the leftist Podemos party belonging to the government coalition, are moving to express their rejection of President Sanchez’s recent decisions on Western Sahara

The vote on the Western Sahara file coincided with a discussion about the Spanish intelligence’s use of the Israeli Pegasus program and the spying of foreign parties on government officials, including Pedro Sanchez himself, then Defense Minister Margarita Robles and Interior Minister Grande Marlaska.

The decision was put to a vote in Parliament three times within two weeks, the last of which was Thursday of this week.

The government is trying to convince Parliament of the new position. Before the vote, Foreign Minister Manuel Albares stated that Madrid’s position is not a departure from United Nations resolutions, but rather contributes to the search for a long-running dispute within the framework of the United Nations.

He considered the current circumstances appropriate to search for a solution to the conflict, after the appointment of the Special Envoy for the Western Sahara conflict, Staffan de Mistura.
