PEDRO Sanchez refused to apologise for the tone and content of his attack on Mariano Rajoy during Monday night’s head-to-head general election debate.
During the heated exchange, Sanchez slammed Rajoy for his links to disgraced former PP treasurer Luis Barcenas.
Barcenas was placed in prison in 2013 over a corruption and money-laundering scandal.
He claimed he had diverted funds to PP officials from a fund of business donations.
“I had to expose Mariano Rajoy’s lies and gave the voice to millions of Spaniards who think that he should have resigned,” said Sanchez.
Meanwhile, a poll commissioned by Llorente & Cuenca revealed what hot topics Spaniards were debating on social media during Monday’s debate.
Of the 1.5 million messages about the debate on social media, 23% were critical of Rajoy, 21% discussed the end of the two-party system and 17% were about corruption.
Next down the list of topics were the economy and employment (15%) and violence against women (12%).
