The government spokesperson, Isabel Celaá, has assured that Pablo Iglesias is the only person in charge of the meeting that he is going to keep in prison today with the leader of ERC, Oriol Junqueras, and that the leader of the formation "is not the delegate of the Government for nothing "
In the press conference after the meeting of the Council of Ministers, Celaá has responded to the request of the president of the Principality, Javier Fernández, who has asked the Government to "clarify in the most forceful way" that the leader of Podemos does not act as "ambassador" of the Executive in that meeting.
The executive spokeswoman has reiterated what was already expressed by the president, Pedro Sanchez, underlining that "the Government's negotiation is occupied and held accountable" and that if the leader of Podemos talks to the ERC leader about budgets, it is " a question of Churches and Junqueras ".
"Of the words of Iglesias, only Iglesias is responsible, not the government," Celaá said after assuming that the leader of Podemos has signed the budget agreement because he considers it a good project and that "within the possibilities it has to contact other people "," will talk about the benefits "of the agreement.
However, Celaá has avoided specifying if that meeting seems right or wrong because, he said, those "opinions" have not been addressed in the Council of Ministers.
"Junqueras has received various political leaders within the visitation regime he has and this afternoon Iglesias will go in. We do not enter there, the government does not enter into that matter, it does not enter at all, it is the leader of Podemos, who takes responsibility for his own image and its own political force, "he underlined.
