Ayuso charges against the Government for the failure of the state of alarm: “It is the most authoritarian since the dictatorship”

The Government continues to defend that the confinement “saved lives” after the ruling of the Constitutional Court (TC) on the second state of alarm and the co-governance model, a decision that several autonomous barons have not fully understood, but that has served the president from Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, for cross out the Executive as “the most authoritarian since the dictatorship.”

The Plenary of the court of guarantees has upheld Vox’s appeal for protection, which represents a new blow to the legal strategy of Pedro Sánchez’s Executive during the pandemic.

In addition to consider an “excessive term” the six-month extension of the first state of alarm, the other reason that has justified the estimation of the resource is the so-called co-governance with the autonomous communities when agreeing limitations of fundamental rights that, according to the criteria of the court, it was not appropriate to adopt the autonomies.

We were right, once again justice tells us again and, for that reason I insist, we are before the most authoritarian government that we have known in democracy. Since the dictatorship we have not experienced something like this and we cannot get used to this, “said the Madrid president.

From the Executive, its spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, has said that he “made the best decisions” and with the confinement “saved lives”, while he recalled that “it is necessary to fully know” the sentence and added that “it is of course there is no clear legal debate, since there have been four dissenting votes that defended another position “.

“Beyond legal debates”, and being a decision that the Government “abides, as it cannot be otherwise”, Rodríguez stressed that the Executive had to “address something unprecedented and unknown.”

Also the Minister of Defense, Margarita Robles, has defended the actions of the Government and has said that she does not share the decision of the TC.

In his opinion, the Executive did “what he had to do”, in a scenario where there were no legal precedents and within the constitutional parameters.

Along the same lines, the president of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, has affirmed that the state of alarm has been “an absolutely useful instrument to save thousands of lives” and jobs.

In disagreement, the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has criticized the “botched regulations” in which he believes that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has been installed and has opined thate the Constitutional Court ruling reveals “a very serious problem” for which “someone from that government should think about resigning”.

“Normative botch”

The Andalusian chief executive has indicated that “it is evident that in the pandemic things had to be done, but the only thing that could not be done is a shoddy regulation“and has regretted that” sentence after sentence “it is seen how the Supreme Court and the Constitutional Court” are knocking down all the decisions that the Sánchez government has been adopting. ”

The president of the Principality of Asturias, Adrián Barbón, has described the TC’s decision as an “attack” on the autonomous state, which has left him “totally surprised”, as he said.

In statements to journalists, Barbón has indicated that, in the absence of an in-depth analysis, he abides “as it cannot be otherwise” the ruling, although he does not share his arguments by “attacking” the autonomous state when it “refuses” to regional presidents “the ability to intervene in what are concurrent powers.”

The President of Aragon, Javier Lambán, has preferred not to comment on the subject and has expressed its respect for the decisions of the courts, while defending that governments seek to take measures “commensurate with the magnitude of the problems.”

The Basque Government Security Councilor, Josu Erkoreka, has explained that we must wait to know the entire sentence to determine what to do with the fines imposed and paid in that period.

It’s a bit reckless to make such an early statement, so premature, without knowing the arguments of the sentence “, has affirmed Erkoreka.

Some statements that come after yesterday the lehendakari, Íñigo Urkullu, was “perplexed” by the unconstitutionality of the second state of alarm, a matter on which María Civite, president of Navarra, affirmed: “it is discouraging.”

For Ciudadanos, who voted in favor of the second six-month state of alarm, the confinement was essential to save lives but “the Government chose the wrong legal tool” to carry it out, said its spokesman in Congress, Edmundo Bal.
