One of the answers to the amnesty law made by the PP is to deflate only because of external rejection, if not because of internal rejection. This is the proposal of the Popular Party to reform the Penal Code to include a series of crimes of “constitutional disloyalty,” which in practice seeks to ban pro-independence parties. However, poor communication of the proposal and its gaps did more harm than good to the training. For example, when the famous leader of Onda Cero was interviewed and stated that parties convicted of corruption should be made illegal, the presenter pointed out that this is the case for the PP. After such slippages, critical voices within the party grew louder. According to reports from The Trust, PP shelved the proposal and left it in the drawer. “It’s a mistake holding a party fountain in front of the digital.
“It’s a mess, it’s poorly explained, and, more than that, it’s not taking us anywhere,” assessed a member of the party’s steering committee. Feijóo himself acknowledged his mistakes in announcing his training proposal. Given this context, the party compiled the cable, although it did not close the door to withdrawing the proposal when the “time of the procedure” came.
A rough road
From the first time that the proposal was announced in a press conference by the PP spokesperson of the Congress, Miguel Tellado, it was already on the wrong foot because only 24 hours later, the media was called again to differentiate the popular proposal of Vox. The celebrities want to make it clear that their purpose is not to “perpetuate ideas” but “criminal acts,” and they pointed to the example of the referendum on October 1. However, the criticism did not stop. Shortly after, Feijóo joined Onda Cero, and the project became more fruitful due to the group leader’s inability to communicate. After this Via Crucis, the proposal caused discomfort in Genoa.
Support for the move from socialist voters
Although it has been scrapped, the proposal to ban pro-independence parties if they promote illegal referendums has attracted a portion of socialist voters, according to a survey by The World. Concretely, 34% of Pedro Sánchez’s voters are in favor of the PP’s proposal, while 55.2% are against it. There were 11.1% who did not choose any option. In addition, 53% of Spaniards are in favor of banning independence parties in these circumstances, while 39.7% are against the move.
