Sanchez said the Spanish government has had to contend with a number of critical situations over the past few years, such as the worst pandemic in the last century and the war in Ukraine, the only thing missing is a zombie invasion.
Sanchez explained that since taking office in 2018, his government has had to deal with a number of problems, including the COVID-19 outbreak, the eruption of La Palma volcano, Storm Filomena, monkey pox, the conflict in Ukraine and subsequent events.
When asked about the low poll numbers for his government, the Spanish leader said he understands the public’s frustration and anger and is working to “turn the polls upside down”.
Of all the EU countries that have suffered from price increases over the past year, Spain has been particularly hard hit by the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and the Ukraine conflict.
According to Spain’s National Institute of Statistics, consumer inflation in the country rose to 10.7 percent in July, while electricity prices increased by 49 percent, fuel and gas prices by 23.9 percent and food prices by 13.5 percent in the last 12 months.
