The Spanish Prime Minister has exceeded in winning enough votes to extend the emergency lockdown in Spain by a further 15 days.
THE government had initially renounced the one-month extension of the alarm decree at the risk of a parliamentary defeat in the vote that took place today in Congress but instead voted in favour of a new two-week extension, until June 7.
“The alarm state and the de-escalation plan did work. It will not last a day longer than necessary,” said the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez. No one has the right to waste what we have achieved among all.”
Minister Adriana Lastra added: “We still have many uncertainties, but also many certainties. We know that without our responsibility, all that sacrifice will not be enough. We have already seen outbreaks in some territories.”
