The so-called ‘Eurodrama’ surrounding the results of Spain’s Objetivo Eurovisión is now at a higher level than ever before. During the Objetivo Eurovisión winner’s press conference that took place on Monday, only Manel turned up to face the press. Both the RTVE head of entertainment and the Spanish Eurovision head of delegation did not appear as scheduled. As escXtra reported a couple of days ago, the deputy of the Spanish Socialist Party has raised the issue in Congress. In addition, he has submitted questions for RTVE to answer. For more on the details of these questions, read our previous article here.
Answers must be given quickly
The deputy of the Spanish Socialist Party is José Miguel Camacho. According to Spanish news website lainformacion.com, Camacho confirms that the president of RTVE, José Antonio Sánchez Domínguez, must answer these questions within 20 days. If this doesn’t happen, stakes would have to be increased further. In addition, these answers must be given quickly because Spain has to make their definitive decision regarding their Eurovision entrant in mid-March.
Results of Objetivo Eurovisión could be annulled
The article continues to discuss what happens if the answers Domínguez gives, assuming he gives any, are “not conclusive”. Indeed, if there is still potential that fraud has take place, the decision to take Manel Navarro to Eurovision may be affected and the results of Objetivo Eurovisión annulled.
Camacho concludes his various comments on the issue with the following statement. In regards to Objetivo Eurovisión, “people voted and paid money for it, in addition to what is already paid from public funds for Spanish TV to operate. It does not make sense that in the end [those votes] serve no purpose.”
It seems as though there isn’t yet an end in sight to our Spanish ‘eurodrama’. The situations has become one of the most dramatic in Eurovision national final history.
