The controversy and political reactions to the scandal over the conduct of the president of the RFEF temporarily suspended by FIFA, Luis Rubiales, in the final of the Women’s Football World Cup continues. After most political forces have left their opinion on the facts that the National Court’s Prosecutor’s Office is already investigating or those decided by the Sports Administrative Court (TAD), yesterday Wednesday there was still one left to establish positions. Vox.
The formation chaired by Santiago Abascal revealed in a thread published on X -a social network formerly known as Twitter- his opinion on conduct that has been censored by the acting coalition government itself. In tune with other areas that concern the fight against machismo and the advancement of feminism, Vox has downplayed the matter while continuing to condemn Rubiales’ conduct with this unique statement: “With common sense you can distinguish what is a rudeness or bad manners from what is a crime. And we know how to distinguish it.”
“What does VOX think about the Rubiales Case? We denounce the political and media hunt to which Mr. Rubiales is being personally subjected,” said Santiago Abascal’s party on social networks. The ultra party has defended that they refuse to “buy the story of the left that seeks to hide the failure of the Yes is Yes Law and whitewash those who have promoted it, causing the mass release of sexual offenders.”
Bolaños responds to Vox (with carambola to the PP)
Precisely, this Thursday, the acting Minister of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Democratic Memory, Félix Bolaños, was asked about Vox’s position just before visiting the exhibition Intellectual exile in Puerto Rico at the National Library.
In this sense, Bolaños has not hesitated to reproach that this position does not represent today’s Spain, but rather a “sexist and outdated” one of which he is “ashamed.” And he blushes at “egalitarian, free, supportive, plural, diverse and tolerant” Spain. However, Bolaños took advantage of the opportunity to return a question to the journalists.
“What does the PP think of these very sexist statements by Vox regarding the Rubiales case?”

The minister has proposed that “the one to ask is the PP”, a formation that has also ended up condemning Rubiales’ behaviour, but which has taken the opportunity to charge the Government, accusing it of being late in its actions -despite the fact that the Executive continues the legal channels and times to avoid errors that Rubiales could take advantage of at a legal or administrative level.
Bolaños explained that this question should be asked of the popular “because [Vox] He is the preferred partner and with whom he governs in a dozen Autonomous Communities and city councils. What does the PP think of these very sexist statements by Vox regarding the Rubiales case?”
