The PSOE has registered the list with its six members in the commission that will investigate in the Senate the doctoral thesis of the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, and headed by one of the attached spokespersons of the Socialist Group, Mari Carmen Iglesias. At the moment, there is no date for the constitution of the commission.
The representation of the PSOE is completed by Francesc Antich (spokesperson in the Constitutional Commission), Rosa Mari López (spokesperson in Universities), Fuensanta Lima (vice-president of the Justice Commission), David Lucas (spokesperson in Family Rights and doctor in Law by Carlos University III) and Tontxu Rodríguez, who is the spokesperson for Justice and in the other commission of investigation that already works in the Senate, on the financing of parties.
Socialist sources have explained to Europa Press that the presentation of vowels does not mean that they are going to participate in the commission, with whose creation they have been very critical. A similar position hold the other groups, which are reserved as they explain the right to participate or not, in line with what happens in the commission of parties: only works on it the PP.
The creation of the commission was approved in plenary on November 7 with the votes in favor of PP, Citizens and Asturias Forum, the abstention of ERC and the rejection of all others. The 'popular' have promoted this investigation after refusing Pedro Sanchez to appear before the Senate Plenary to explain how he made and approved the thesis; If the PP calls the president before the commission, he will be obliged to attend.
For now, the groups are presenting members and the Board will receive the list at its meeting next Tuesday. The date to constitute the commission depends on the president of the Chamber, Pío García-Escudero, and the organization and rhythm of the work will be thereafter in the hands of the absolute majority of the PP.
The majority party was the first to register the list with its vowels, a week ago. Along with 'popular' and socialist, it is already known that the representative of the PNV will be José María Cazalis and the Nationalist Group, Josep Lluís Cleries (PDeCAT). For the Mixed Group, the spokesperson for Citizens in the Senate, Lorena Roldán, takes office.
