The qualification of the highest governing body of the Lower House is the endorsement to begin the processing of the aforementioned proposals, whose inclusion in the agenda of the Plenary must be agreed by the Board of Spokespersons next week. Parliamentary sources explain that both commissions are expected to be debated in the plenary session scheduled for the last week of September.
During the vote of the Table of Congress, the groups that have a majority in said body, PSOE and United We Can, have voted in favor of qualifying the commissions, Vox has abstained and the PP has voted against.
The text registered by Socialists and United We Can requests that the Chamber investigate “the illegal use of personnel, means and resources of the Ministry of the Interior, in order to favor the political interests of the PP and to annul incriminating evidence for this party in cases of corruption, during the government terms of the Popular Party “.
