Juanma Moreno, the PP’s leader in Andalusia, said on Wednesday evening that his party had secured Vox’s support for his investiture as regional president without bowing to any of the latter’s most controversial demands.
Among the measures agreed between the PP and Vox are the formation of a regional family ministry, the scrapping of a historical memory law that helps Franco-era victims search for relatives’ remains, limits on help for undocumented immigrants, and support for bullfighting and hunting.
“Today change commences in Andalusia,” Mr Moreno told reporters in the Seville parliament building.
“The PP has shown an enormous capacity for dialogue. These agreements will help Andalusian families.”
Ciudadanos said it had also done a deal with the PP, but stressed that it had nothing to do with the latter’s agreement with Vox, which will not be part of the government coalition.
“Our agreement binds only the PP and Ciudadanos. It is solely and exclusively an agreement of government.”
Ciudadanos has deliberately kept its distance from Vox under the watchful eye of European political allies from the centre ground, such as the government of Emmanuel Macron, the French president.
