When the pools
electoral they pay more attention to later agreements than to results of each party, there are alliances that are not interesting to talk about. And that's what happened to the government, who has seen how his good relations with the independentistas of Bildu, ERC and PDECat, to approve the decrees laws in the permanent deputation last Wednesday, have turned against him, and have served as ammunition to attack the PSOE already Pedro Sánchez.
Barely 48 hours after obtaining support from Bildu, ERC and PDECat to approve the decrees, the Government now tries to distance itself from these formations, with very harsh criticism and a total and frontal rejection of its proposals. Especially towards Bildu, but also towards the Catalan separatists, while with their other allies less conflictive in electoral terms, We can and the PNV, nothing has changed.
"He still has many things to do in Spanish democracy, like asking for forgiveness"
Telephone calls to the only deputy that Bildu has in Congress to persuade him to vote in favor of the law decrees, given that their support was necessary for them to be validated, were taken advantage of by the Basque independence movement to highlight that Bildu He does not inhibit participating in Spanish politics and is willing to reach agreements with Sánchez. But those calls also helped the PP candidate, Pablo Casado, reproach the president who had reached "an agreement with the guns."
The one in charge of making it clear that the government and the PSOE do not share the postulates of the independence parties was the spokesperson, Isabel Celaá, who leaned on Thursday's incident in the Basque Parliament - where a deputy from Bildu, Julen Arzuaga, called "Nazis" to representatives of the Police and the Civil Guard present in the plenary session that approved a law that recognizes the victims of police excesses - to distance themselves from this political force and to mark distances. "Those words are totally unacceptable for any democracy, especially when he should have started his speech asking for forgiveness for the crimes of ETA," said the minister, for whom "Bildu still has things to do in the Spanish democracy, among others. sorry for the more than 800 victims that ETA has caused. "
To the Catalan sovereigntists
"A referendum on self-determination is not a right nor is it a solution"
Of the Catalan separatists, ERC and the candidacy of JxCat, the Government distanced itself taking advantage of the results of the CEO, made public yesterday, and by the supposed intention of the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, to create a guard of their own to protect him and the expresidents, regardless of the organic structure of the Mossos. "If so, it is aberrant," said the spokeswoman at the press conference after the Council of Ministers, because the police "should not have ideological filters, must work in compliance with the law and serve no ideological cause." Celaá also recalled that "no police group can work behind any ideological profile, but they have as a basic requirement the ideological neutrality".
As for the results of the CEO (see the next page), which indicate that 78% of Catalans argue for the right to decide, Celaá stressed that "the referendum is not the solution," because "it is not a right nor is it contemplated in the Constitution ". In addition, in his opinion, it is a binary procedure in which one can only say yes or no to independence, and does not "fix the complexity of society".
The minister spokeswoman recalled that in no election that has been held the independence have been a majority, and stressed that the referendums "divide, fracture and that the policy has to provide solutions, not cause problems." That is why the Government opts for pedagogy to explain these things to the Catalans.
