The president of the Xunta, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, today asked the Government, "after the experience in the last hours" in Catalonia, that "it does not disguise what is pure connivance."
At the closing of a conference on the anniversaries of the referendum of the Statute of Autonomy of Galicia (1980) – promulgated in April 1981 – and the Spanish Constitution (1978) in the Galician Parliament, Núñez Feijóo has argued that "there can be no condescension "with those who challenge Spanish democracy.
He has alluded in this way to the meeting held yesterday between the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez, and the President of the Generalitat, Joaquim Torra; as well as the one held between senior representatives of both governments.
Núñez Feijóo has assured that "the independentist processes do not have their origin in the autonomism, but they are a challenge to Spain, that is democratic because it is plural and is plural because it is democratic".
"Those who seek to break the constitutional coexistence resort as an alibi to the supposed failure of this model that was born in 1978. It is enough to review what happens in the Communities that suffer from rupturist fever to check the pernicious effects of intolerance and even, in my opinion, of fanaticism, "he said.
For this reason, the problem is not in the Constitution or the Statutes, has continued, but as he said "the problems of coexistence and loss of democratic quality erupt when the constitutional and autonomic values are forgotten."
Faced with this situation, he has defended, "the answer is to reaffirm" and rescue the political style of the people who made the Pacts of Moncloa possible or, in Galicia, the Pact of the Hostel, thanks to which the reduced Statute was impeded. I wanted to impose on the Community.
