The former vice president of the Socialist government, Alfonso Guerra, said Thursday in the middle of the conflict over the separatist yellow ties that the Catalan leaders "have a tremendous stubbornness", for which he has doubted that the president of the Catalan Generalitat, Quim Torra, "his head is working" and that of his predecessor, Carles Puigdemont, has said that "he is upset".
"It is scandalous to see Torra mocking the institutions" Guerra said in an interview in RNE, collected by Europa Press, asked by the decision of the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, to accept the order of the Central Electoral Board (JEC) to remove the yellow ties, whose deadline was due this Wednesday, to replace them with white ones.
"This man, either his head is not working or is a tremendous barullán," Guerra said about Torra after saying that the pro-independence "have a tremendous stubbornness."
In this regard, he pointed out that there is "plenty" of the population with the Catalan crisis and with the figure of the former president of the Catalan Generalitat in Belgium, Carles Puigdemont. "How we can be, between this upset that is in Waterloo that looks like a new Antonio Pérez speaking against Spain as in the seventeenth century," he said ironically.
THE "CONSTITUTIONALISTS" DO NOT PACT BETWEEN YES
Thus, Guerra has disapproved that parties that call themselves "constitutionalist" as Citizens, PP and PSOE "seek to ally with non-constitutionalists instead of having some agreement between them", to solve the crisis in Catalonia and "mimic" anti-constitutionalist formations "
"In serious moments one has to know who to support," said the former socialist leader, adding that it is "incredible" that he is "coddling" those who come "against the Constitution" on the one hand and on the other, in reference to the pacts of PP and CS with Vox in Andalusia and the PSOE with the Catalan separatist parties.
"The Catalans are very right wing, very reactionary, very conservative," stressed the former socialist vice-president, criticizing the talks that the government has had over these months with the independence parties.
Guerra has shown that Ciudadanos has already agreed with the PSOE before and wanted to remind the president of the 'naranaja' formation, Albert Rivera, that "we must aim to favor citizens", criticizing the decision announced by Citizens of not agree with the PSOE regardless of the results of the elections on April 28.
"How will he veto a party if he signed an agreement with him?", He noted in reference to the agreement between both formations in 2016. Thus, the former socialist leader has proposed that to provide "shelter" to the Catalan people as a whole, "Some positions of responsibility are taken from nationalists, such as, for example, the mayor's office."
"The parties that call themselves constitutionalists have to favor solutions to constitutionalist paths, not the opposite ones," he said, adding value to the candidacy of Manuel Valls in Barcelona. EQUIP THE 23F TO THE PROCESS
Guerra, who was a deputy in the Congress when, on February 23, 1981, Lt. Col. Antonio Tejero burst into the camera, pistol in hand, attempting to perpetrate a coup d'état, has stated that "in essence" both the 23F and the Procés have "the same seriousness" since, in his opinion, "they are two acts that try to snatch the national sovereignty from whoever has it".
Thus, Guerra has stressed that they are two acts "clearly" against the rule of law. "Some occupying the parliament, others, deciding that a part of Spain leaves Spain to stop being in Spain," has settled.
