The president of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has assured this Sunday that the PSOE that elaborated the Constitution will defend "with nails and teeth" the self-government and the State of the autonomies, and has reiterated against the independence movement of Catalonia the "it is not no" that it has already used against the investiture of Mariano Rajoy.
In an act of pre-campaign this Sunday in Zaragoza next to the head of list by the province to the Congress, Susana Sumelzo, and candidates for the Presidency of the Government of Aragon and the Mayor of the Aragonese capital, Javier Lambán and Pilar Alegría, Sánchez has insisted that "there will be no independence in Catalonia if there is a socialist government" after the elections on April 28.
He pointed out that this is known to both the independence and the right parties because the Constitution does not recognize the independence of Catalonia, the international community "has turned its back" and the Catalans themselves "do not want it". The problem in Catalonia is called "coexistence, not independence", has emphasized, and to solve it there are two ways: "keep confronting as you want the right, or dialogue within the Constitution and the Statute of Catalonia."
And therefore, within the "trip to no" part of the independence movement that wants to break the State of the autonomy and the right that wants to "recentralize" and question the self-government of the autonomies as a whole, the PSOE will "defend it with nails and teeth" , has secured in the Conference Hall of the Expo before some 1,700 people, according to the organization.
The secretary general of the PSOE recalled that from the motion of censure that raised "responsibility" and that led him to the Presidency of the Government after a ruling saying "that the PP had been financed irregularly," the right accuses him of have agreed with the independence movement and that is "a lie".
He has criticized that the PP did not assume its responsibility then, because Mariano Rajoy did not resign as president of the Government, nor did Citizens, the party that "came to regenerate politics". And he has asked that if today Rajoy was still president, it would be said that the independence movement had agreed with the PP to stay in the Government of Spain.
