In the corridors of the Congress, the parliamentary spokesman of ERC, Joan Tardà, has warned that the Government has the "key" so that the parties can sit down to talk about the Budgets, and that the Government urges the Prosecutor to withdraw the charges that weigh on the leaders of the 'proces' imprisoned, which have been claiming for weeks, he recalled.
"They will know if they want to do it or not, or if they want to do something else, but what I do tell them is that we are not going to talk about the Budgets if they do not move beforehand," said Tardà, before making it clear that ERC does not feel "pressured".
WHAT WOULD WE DO IF WE COULD HAVE CHURCHES IN PRISON?
"If someone believes that he will pressure us, he is very wrong", insisted the Catalan separatist, who has addressed at this point to Unidos Podemos, signatory of the budget agreement with the Government and an ideologically related group to ERC, to underline the reason why his stance.
"How would Podemos act if he had his leader, Pablo Iglesias, imprisoned and accused of rebellion? They would prioritize what is evident: in the situation of those who are unjustly incarcerated there is only one solution, which is absolution," he said.
PDECAT: NOW THE CONDITIONS ARE NOT GIVEN TO SUPPORT THEM
In line with what he has been saying for weeks, his PDeCAT counterpart, Carles Campuzano, has reiterated that today "hardly" can support the public accounts agreed by the Government and Podemos because "the political conditions do not exist" .
However, he has said he has "hopes" that imprisoned sovereign leaders end up coming out of prison, in which both the Prosecutor's Office and the State Attorney's Office "change their minds" and that the Pedro Sánchez Executive puts a proposal on the table "serious and substantive" policy on Catalonia.
"As I hope that, I do not want to rule out any scenario, but if there are no changes, we can hardly support the Budgets", insisted the Catalan separatist.
