The Popular Party, in the mouth of its spokesperson, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, has insisted this Friday on requesting an agreement to modify the method of election of the General Council of the Judicial Power (CGPJ) as a condition to renew this body in the process already open with current regulations.
In an interview with Televisión Española, The mayor of Madrid has also asked the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, that accepts “what the European Union“, “renewal and change in the renewal process”.
Martínez-Almeida has argued that Sánchez is the “only one” who “does not agree”, despite the fact that the Congress rejected by majority the reform that the PP proposed so that the judges could elect the majority of the members.
What’s more, It has not revealed which names they are shuffling or agreeing on PP and PSOE for constitutional bodies that agreed to renew yesterday – the Constitutional Court, the Court of Accounts, the Ombudsman and the Data Protection Agency – but has ruled out that they could generate problems.
The PP spokesperson is not aware that Podemos has proposed members in an agreement that in any case belongs to PP and PSOE.
He has also denied that with this agreement the popular go to “prop up the PSOE” and has played down the criticisms of Vox. The PP is a “state party” that looks out for the interest of the Spanish, not for that of other parties, he argued.
“You have to have rennet”
On the other hand, the PP spokesman has reproached that Sanchez asked this Thursday that the emeritus king give explanations to the Spaniards before the “disturbing” information about his heritage.
“You have to have rennet”, Almeida has ugly, alluding to Sánchez’s lack of explanations and after defending that the king has not been charged and that the Prosecutor’s Office plans to archive the investigations into the funds he possesses abroad, he has asked that the President of the Government not use Juan Carlos de Bourbon “decoy”.
Regarding the society in Belize that the mayor of Badalona, Xavier García Albiol, managed in 2005, he has ruled out that it should lead to the resignation of the PPC councilor, although his explanation could have been “better or worse” or could have been “short” .
For her part, the second vice president and leader of United We Can in the Executive, Yolanda Diaz, has launched a call to the PP to favor an agreement for the renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary and end its “shameful” position of breaching the Constitution with its blockade.
An attitude that relates to a “partisan use” of this judicial institution by the formation led by Pablo Casado.
This has been reported to the media before participating in the meeting of the Council of Ministers of Employment and Social Policy of the European Union (EPSCO), which is held in Luxembourg.
Thus, urged the popular to extend to the governing body of the judges the agreement reached with the coalition government as a whole to renew the Court of Accounts, the Constitutional Court and the Ombudsman, as it is “essential” to do so.
For the head of Labor “of course it is very difficult to explain to the public that there is a party, the PP, which has a manifest intention of violating the Constitution.”
“It is shameful, it seems to me that the institutions must be respected logically, but we also need to give certainty and tranquility to a country that has suffered a lot, “he lamented.
And it is that Díaz has emphasized that the “partisan use of institutions of maximum importance are inadequate in democracy”.
