The afternoon was very calm in the political field, despite the new storm in the morning due to the upcoming Amnesty Law. In that tense calm that precedes any chaos, it is Esteban González Pons, Institutional Deputy Secretary of the PP and national deputy, who opens a new front by saying that the Constitutional Court is “a cancer of the Rule of Law.” In addition, he added that famous people would think not to go to him again, in severe criticism for considering him in the service of the current government. Hours later, he had to ‘pull the cord’.
But his first message did not take long to receive a response. The PSOE reacted with an emergency statement in which they assured that the statements were “unbecoming of a democrat,” and, knowing the correction of González Pons, they added that “there is no step back to hide” the seriousness of them.
That’step back’ came in the afternoon, when the famous representative himself assured that “the comparison between CT and cancer is not lucky.” “I want to withdraw it and apologize, especially to the people who suffer or are suffering from this disease. In PP, we know how to recognize a mistake,” he added.
Entering the depth of the message of the Valencian representative, Ferraz Ferraz it is a sign “that the Popular Party does not support what it does not control” and added his words to other criticisms launched by Núñez Feijóo “in the same definition of harm” in the Constitution
“The populist and reactionary drift of the Popular Party is very worrying and dangerous for the policies of the state. A party that wants to govern this country cannot do so at the cost of dynamiting all consensus, destroying all bridges, and denying legitimacy to all that do not have them. under their control.”
From the socialist headquarters, they drew up a list of popular’resistance’ to the institutional consensus. Therefore, the statement reads, “They do not like the Congress of Deputies and announce that they will do their political action in the Senate, where they have an absolute majority; they do not like any change in the General Council of the Judiciary, which means the loss of the conservative majority; and they blocked him for five years; he failed to govern, and the Government of Spain for them is not legitimate; now it is the turn of the Constitutional Court.” “Ignacio Cosidó said it the other day, that we will ‘control’ the second room from the back”; end of the text.
The first and third vice presidents of the government, as well as the spokesperson of the Congress, joined the ‘corporate’ message in different interventions after hearing Pons. Therefore, adjectives such as “unbearable,” “irresponsible,” or “an anger like the top of a pine tree” appear in their qualifications.
The PP will go to the Constitutional Court on future occasions (starting with the amnesty)
The initial message of González Pons on Tuesday refers to the fact that, according to Génova, the Constitutional Court is “contaminated by politics” and acts as “the arbitrator who decides the outcome of the game,” which means that “our entire constitutional architecture is collapsing.”.
“There are parts of the body that can be contaminated, and nothing happens. But if the brain and the heart are contaminated, the body collapses. The cancer of the Rule of Law is called the Constitutional Court led by Cándido Conde-Pumpido,” he added before raising the possibility that the PP may consider stopping going to that high court.
In PP we know how to identify an error
Esteban González Pons, after apologizing for his words about CT and cancer
A few hours later, and after apologizing for his “deplorable words,” the same charge retracted its alleged ‘withdrawal’ from TC. “The PP will not leave any political, social, or judicial avenue unexamined to avoid what it perceives as an illegal and unjustified measure. Therefore, we will take the Amnesty Law to the Constitutional Court once it is approved.”
“No matter how the PSOE manipulates them, no democratic institution can be considered obsolete or useless. We will not cooperate with the evil of the institution created by Sánchez through his actions. We will go to the TC to clarify if he participated in the opinion of the lawyers of the Congressional Justice Commission and therefore determined that it is unconstitutional,” he concluded, in another note shared by Génova.
