The Popular Party made a major decision on the amnesty law in the Senate, where they have an absolute majority. This Tuesday, before Junts ignored the final text of the Congress, the Senate Committee, dominated by the PP, requested a report from the lawyers of the Upper House about the consequences of not accepting the initiative for processing if the rule is acceptable to them. from Carrera de San Jerónimo on the day it was approved there, parliamentary sources indicate. The Popular Party was reluctant from the beginning to the possibility of stopping the rule without even giving it an action, but now it is asking the legal services about the “legal obligations that are on the Table” due to pressure from of Vox, acknowledged by popular sources. Santiago Abascal’s party has repeatedly demanded that Alberto Núñez Feijóo stop the law of his comfortable representation in the Senate. The opinion against the lawyers of the Upper House will support the position of the PP against the ultras, where they are fighting to lead the offensive against the grace measure for the accused in the process.

The PP intends to block the progress of the amnesty law in the Senate as much as possible. The initiative will not reach the Upper House at the moment because this Tuesday Junts voted against the final text, despite the opinion in favor. This will be done in the coming weeks when the PSOE and Junts finally reach an agreement after a new debate at the Congressional Justice Commission. If this happens, the first discussion in which the popular parties must establish a position is to accept or not to process the law in the Senate Table.

More information

Popular sources and those from the Senate presidency are already interested in the beginning of the processing of the law. The Regulations of the Upper House do not specify what are the consequences of stopping a rule, but the decision of the Constitutional Court 97/2002 decided that, if a law approved by the Congress is not processed, it returns to the Lower House that is nothing.

The spokesman of the PP, Borja Sémper, ordered this Wednesday in a press conference at the PP headquarters that his party “will do strange things” in the Senate. “No one expects things that burden the institutions, the rules, the regulations or the law,” he emphasized, reports Elsa García de Blas. The PP leader suggested that the report was requested to “clarify Vox’s doubts” on this matter, given the pressure exerted by the extreme right of the PP to paralyze the law. “When we ask for a report from lawyers, whether on this matter or anything else, whether in the Congress of Deputies or the Senate, it is to clear the doubts of those who have it and so that the action is transparent and normal. ,” said Sémper. “Our position has not changed in this case, we are asking for the lawyers’ reports because it seems appropriate and because we want it to shed a little light if someone is living in the dark,” he added. Sources from The leadership of the PP privately maintains that the party has no doubt that it will not be possible to stop the processing of the amnesty law in the Senate, but they acknowledge that with the report they can “strengthen” their position vis-à-vis that of Vox.

Despite everything, Vox raised the tone against the celebrities, which it pressured the public and asked not to process the law in the Table. “What is unconstitutional in Congress is unconstitutional in the Senate, unless they want to contradict themselves,” said Vox’s parliamentary spokesperson, Pepa Millán, in a press conference on Tuesday morning. The ultra deputy called on Feijóo to “rebel” in the face of what they consider an “extraordinary situation.” Millán endorsed the words of the PP leader himself, who on Sunday asked citizens to rebel against the Government in a new protest against Pedro Sánchez in Madrid. During the debate in Congress, Abascal spoke to Feijóo from the rostrum: “We ask you to correct and join a full-time opposition (…) Use your majority in the Senate to prevent the processing of a law that is totally unconstitutional”.

By asking the lawyers of the Senate, the PP can hide behind the upcoming report one way or another. “Vox asked that the Senate not process the law. There are different opinions and what is interesting now is that there is a solvent opinion, which is that of the lawyers,” explained famous sources from the Table. The battle between of the forces of the right occurred in the middle of the struggle to highlight who will attack the coalition government the most and with the arrival of the elections in Galicia, where the PP will see its victory decrease depending on the votes expressed by Vox .conquered Galicia.

This Tuesday, the Senate Board approved the change proposed by the PP to hold three plenary sessions every month instead of two, as usual. “(The Senate) will be the speaker for the Spaniards who are not served by the Government,” said the famous spokeswoman of the Upper House, Alicia García. The spokesman of the PSOE, Juan Espadas, expressed his disapproval: “The PP does not want the Senate to talk about things like food, about the interests of the citizens.” The new calendar starts next week, on February 6.

The spending ceiling, next week

Budget stability objectives – better known as the spending ceiling – are likely to be debated in next week’s first session of the Senate, according to parliamentary sources. The spending ceiling is important in the design of the General State Budget (PGE), which the Government wants to prepare in April and the negotiations for the Accounts of other parties will take place when it is approved.

But the Senate has full power to decide on the spending ceiling, because the plenary session of the upper house can reverse the norm with full autonomy from Congress, something that does not happen in remaining initiatives. Of course, sources from the socialist leadership indicate that, after the explosion of the Junts this Tuesday, the priority is to resolve the issue surrounding the amnesty law and leave the negotiations on the General State Budgets when this chaos has solution.
