The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, will participate together with King Felipe VI in the awards ceremony of the Barcelona New Economy Week organized by the Consortium of the Barcelona Free Zone, as La Hora de La 1 has advanced. The event will take place this Friday at the Estación de Francia and will be chaired by the king.
The week in which Lesmes gave a pulse to the Government and dragged Felipe VI into the storm
This visit will take place after the political storm unleashed after the Government made it known to the Casa del Rey that the presence of the monarch in Barcelona was not politically opportune at the ceremony of delivery of judicial dispatches in Barcelona on September 25. , because it coincided with the judicial ruling of the disqualification of Torra.
During his speech at the dispatch ceremony, the president of the General Council of the Judicial Power (CGPJ) and the Supreme Court, Carlos Lesmes, expressed his “enormous regret” for the absence of Felipe VI, whose presence at the event he considers a ” expression of permanent support from the Crown to the judiciary in its defense of the Constitution. ” Lesmes defended that the presence of the monarch, a “tradition” of more than twenty years, “goes far beyond the protocol” and acquires “a constitutional and political dimension.”
Lesmes informed the new judges that the king had telephoned him to ask him to transfer them that he would have liked to be with them at the ceremony.
