The general secretary of the Popular Party, Cuca Gamarra, accused Pedro Sánchez of “submitting to the dictates and programs of the fugitive Puigdemont.” “PSOE changed Suresnes for Waterloo todaywas criticized by the leader, referring to the French city where, in 1974, the party joined the social democratic current and referring to the Belgian town where, since his escape, the former president in Catalonia.
The PSOE is celebrating its national convention this weekend in La Coruña. For its part, the Popular Party convened its interparliamentary meeting in Orense, where it expressed its support for Alfonso Rueda, the current president of the Xunta de Galicia and party candidate for the next regional elections.
There, Gamarra criticized the “total surrender” of the government to the “dissolution of the interests” of its partners in independenceat the cost of unity, separation of powers, equality…”.
The general secretary of the PP warned of “democratic corruption,” which includes political decisions such as the transfer to Catalonia of the central state’s powers on immigration, something agreed upon between the PSOE and Junts to get the votes of Puigdemont’s party in Congress.
“It pays the exclusive powers of the state that they themselves call the Spanish Le Pen,” he criticized the xenophobic speeches of the right-wing independence party. Next, Gamarra demanded that Pedro Sánchez explain “what will be given,” since the management of immigration is an exclusive competence of the state, which, on the other hand, can be given, to some extent, to the autonomy of that community.
The general secretary of the Popular Party also charged against the upcoming law that would grant amnesty for the crimes involved process, a rule negotiated between the PSOE and Puigdemont and which he wants to make more ambitious. Cuca Gamarra recalled, however, that this week the report from the lawyers of the Congress of Deputies was made public, warning of the unconstitutionality of the bill presented last November by the PSOE and that the Junts will further expand and favor For example, the all terrorist crimes. .
In fact, the Riojan leader urged Sánchez to declare “How do you explain amnesty for crimes like terrorism and corruption in Europe?”. Gamarra called that law the “law of impunity” and called it “immoral, unjust and illegal.” “Is this your constitutionalism?” he asked about the processing of the law, which continues, despite the warnings of these congressional officials, legal experts with a lot of experience.
Likewise, this Saturday, Gamarra criticized the words of Minister Teresa Ribera, who accused Judge Manuel García-Castellón of instrumental in the investigation against Puigdemont in the amnesty torpedo. He attacked “the statements of a full vice president (…) accusing a magistrate of prevaricating.” “It is unbearable,” he criticized, before predicting that Pedro Sánchez, far from rejecting Ribera, “will reward him.” “Arriving at Sanchismwithout a doubt,” he predicted.
The leader of the PP also criticized that the PSOE assimilated The rhetoric of Podemos, who went on to call some of the judges “toga faces.” “They criticized it and they themselves (PSOE leaders) assumed it,” he stressed.
“Puigdemont ordered and Sánchez followed,” Gamarra concluded, warning from Galicia that if the PSOE, “a historic party,” approaches “the independence movement, it moves away from the common project that is Spain and the Spanish.”
