He did this in an interview with Servimedia hours after the Congress of Deputies rejected the current wording of the PSOE bill, which was included in its processing of the presentation and commission changes from the ERC and Junts per Catalunya but without include, due to rejection. of the Government parties, the latest request of this last parliamentary group.
Junts does not want to leave from amnesty any crime of terrorism or treason against the State, namely those who threaten not to exonerate the former president of the Generalitat of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont according to the latest judicial order which affects him and has been done. which was issued by the judge of the Manuel García-Castellón National Court and the Barcelona investigator Joaquín Aguirre. This non-participation led the seven deputies of the group to vote against and therefore return the opinion of the bill to the Congressional Justice Commission.
Specifically asked if the PSOE should agree to this request from the Junts to include changes that neutralize the said judicial processes or not, Bustinduy clarified that “it is not a question of a actor or other actor”, not even PSOE and Junts. , but that “all the political actors that make up the parliamentary majority supporting the Government must keep in mind that the mandate that comes from the polls is to understand, it is to overcome conflicts.”
The minister insisted in defense that “the amnesty law will be positive over time”, that “it was done in an impeccable, irreproachable way, in accordance with the parliamentary procedure and in full respect of the principles of our parliament democracy.” At the same time, he admitted that with him “we are in a way trapped in a kind of daily soap opera, where every day someone speaks, one day something is requested and another day another was asked, a judge intervened, where He said, he said, he said, “Diego…”.
Faced with this chaos, he proposed to “give us a certain normality”, “reduce tensions”, “dialogue with general normality” and “establish agreements that must include concessions to all parts but must happen to progress, to inaugurate a new period. and to leave “behind a period characterized by conflict, by lack of understanding, by irrational abuse, in a culture of self-interested confrontation.”
Bustinduy wants to condemn that “there are political actors who have a clear and obvious interest in continuing the conflict in Catalonia,” because “they live in this confrontation and therefore want to keep it alive.” And, at the same time, he confirmed that “Junts has a very clear agenda of priorities and puts them before everything,” but predicted that “Junts, like all other actors, must have a principle of truth.”
That is, “that we are obliged to understand each other, we are obliged to agree, and that, as always happens in politics, agreements are never completely satisfactory for any of the parties” and “it must be something that leaves the parties dissatisfied or leaves the parties abandoned,” but it means an opportunity for improvement.”
