The president of the Valencian Generalitat, Ximo Puig, and the first secretary of the PSC, Miquel Iceta, exhibited yesterday "total tuning." Puig's visit to Barcelona to attend the XII edition of the Premis Carles Ferrer Salat and Medals d'Honor de Foment del Treball served for the Valencian leader and Iceta to urge ERC to allow the investiture of Pedro Sánchez after his pre-agreement with Pablo Iglesias.
"Neither we demand a blank check nor we ask for a total adhesion, we talked about facilitating the best possible government," said the president of the Valencian Generalitat yesterday to ask Esquerra to "analyze the situation well" and rethink his initial refusal to Sánchez – in which the Republicans on Monday have reaffirmed as long as they have no guarantees of a real, concrete dialogue and with dates on the table to give a political solution to the Catalan crisis. "We can not continue in this situation of blockade and now I see no alternative to Sanchez," Puig urged after warning that a non-Republican could lead to "paralysis or a right-wing government."
Everyone who says they want dialogue has the opportunity not to hamper the constitution of a government that has committed to this dialogue. ”
Message that also deepened Iceta to try to push ERC towards abstention: “Everyone who says they want dialogue has the opportunity not to hinder the constitution of a government that has committed to this dialogue,” explained the leader of the Socialists Catalans
Ximo Puig listed the benefits of a possible coalition executive between the PSOE and United We can. "We are excited because, if those who want to boycott without more allow it, it will be a government of freedoms and social rights, of hope to overcome inequalities and find ways to fit together to live together," said the president. A horizon for which Puig called the independence forces to "seek understandings and approaches within the rule of law, the Statute and the Constitution." As an example, he put the “Valencian way, the autonomous way of progress that thinks in the general interest,” he concluded.
Let's leave the blocks, both on the national axis and on the right / left because this country needs agreements ”
"Defronterize the policy, leave the blocks, both on the national axis and on the right / left because this country needs agreements," said Puig, who warned that the resolution of the territorial conflict "needs the competition of the political forces of the right" and "the PSC must have an important role."
Miquel Iceta picked up Puig's witness to emphasize that the PSC is "willing to help" in the immediate negotiation with ERC. In any case, Iceta wanted to make it clear that the PSC "cannot replace" the negotiation between the parliamentary groups of the Congress of Deputies. "We are willing to collaborate, yes, but not to act as mediators," he said.
