The president of the People's Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, seems to have lost the geographical compass during his recent election campaign. His lapses and confusions, especially in relation to Spanish geography, have been the subject of debate and humor in the media and on social networks.

Feijóo and his perception of Andalusia

During an act in Badajoz, Feijóo perplexed the audience by referring to its location as Andalusia. "I end with the word illusion because that is what I perceive every time I come to Andalusia," he said, forgetting that he was in Extremadura.

This geographical error did not go unnoticed and became a reason for laughter and comments on social networks. A lapse that shows a certain lack of orientation in the leader of the Popular Party.

Confusion about the capital of Castilla y León

But Feijóo's confusion was not limited to Extremadura. During an act in Valladolid, he referred to this city as the capital of Castilla y León. "After the act we did in Segovia next to the aqueduct presenting the candidates, we return here today to the capital of Castilla y León, in Valladolid," he said.

This comment once again demonstrated his geographical ignorance, since Castilla y León, in reality, does not have an official capital. This is a well-known fact in the Spanish geography, which seems to have escaped the memory of the president of the Popular Party.

Feijóo between controversy and humor

These geographical lapses have led to questions about Feijóo's familiarity with Spanish territory. In turn, they have fueled the comedy on social networks, where users have been quick to make memes and humorous comments about their confusion.

It is evident that these errors, although they may seem minor, can have consequences on the public perception of the politician. As the campaign continues, Feijóo must be more careful with his geographical references to avoid further slip-ups and possible repercussions on his political image.
