The Secretary of organization of the PSC, Salvador Illa, today asked PDeCAT and ERC not to condition their support to the general budgets of the State to "impossible requests" to be met by the Government of Pedro Sánchez.
In statements to journalists, Illa stressed that the Government's budget project is "very beneficial for the whole of Spain and for Catalonia", since it includes social measures that "put an end to seven years of austerity" and "initiate a path of improvement of the financing of Catalonia ".
In his opinion, "it would not be understood that the Catalan parties did not give support" to these budgets, although "there is still time to be able to make proposals and even improve them".
Nor would it be understood, he warned, that PDeCAT and ERC "supported" their 'no' budgets to the fact that their "impossible requests" to the Sanchez Government are not met.
Both the PDeCAT and the ERC have warned that they will vote 'no' on budgets if the socialist government does not move in relation to the "political prisoners and exiles" and "self-determination".
For Illa, "Catalonia is at a crossroads", in which "some still defend the unsuccessful road of unilateralism and illegality, which has left us divided, impoverished and discredited," while "others defend taking advantage of the window of opportunity that opened with Pedro Sánchez. "
In this sense, it has highlighted that "in just over 100 days" since Sanchez arrived at La Moncloa, there have been "more than 20 visits of ministers to Catalonia and more than 20 bilateral meetings" between the Government and the Generalitat.
