The PSOE called this Saturday an extraordinary meeting of the Federal Committee at the Ferraz headquarters in cConsult the government’s agreement with the militant reached Sumar because of a possible Executive of the coalition.
In a note, the highest socialist body called on the bases to go to the national headquarters at 10:30 am on October 28 to consult the adoption of the agreements with the PSOE government and the ratification of the socialist candidates for the Presidency in their respective autonomous communities.
The call comes after this Tuesday the highest officials of the PSOE and Sumar, Pedro Sánchez and Yolanda Díaz, sealed a coalition agreement where they intend to complete a four-year term. In order to have a Government, however, the favorable vote of other parliamentary groups is required, among them the pro-independence parties -ERC and Junts – who demand, among other things, the approval of a amnesty for those involved in the ‘procés. ‘.
A mandatory consultation, according to the laws
In its federal laws, the PSOE establishes consultation with militancy as mandatory in the agreements of the Government to which the PSOE is a party or in the direction of voting in the investiture sessions which includes facilitating the Government to another political party.
Therefore, you should ask about the coalition agreement with Sumar, as it happened in 2016 because of the possibility of make the government with the citizens and more recently, in 2019with Unidas Podemos, where more than 103,000 people participated.
On the other hand, consultations on other types of issues, such as a hypothetical pact with the Junts for the investiture of Sánchez that includes the amnesty law, are not mandatory, but can be held if the Federal Executive Commission decides .
The Federal Committee has not met since last June, when it met with the purpose of approving the lists for the 23-J general election.
