The president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has assured that the State agreements and pacts will arrive after his party yesterday suspended negotiations to renew the General Council of the Judiciary, whose mandate has expired for four years, alleging the intention of the President of the Government to carry out the reform of the crime of sedition in order, according to Pedro Sánchez himself, to harmonize the penalties with those of the European legal environment. But they will arrive in the future, "with this PP and with another PSOE", Feijóo said at a meeting organized in Vitoria by the newspaper El Correo under the title "Objective today".
"I know that citizens yearn for State agreements and pacts and I also believe that they will come", said Feijóo, who has sentenced: "I am sure that they will come, with this PP and with another PSOE", implying that there will no longer be renewal of the Judiciary in this legislature that should end at the end of 2023.
On the other hand, the president of the PP has referred to the reason why they decided to suspend the negotiations and has accused the Government of Pedro Sánchez of "eroding the division of powers through arbitrary changes of competence in the highest body of the judiciary, through pardons or through changes in the classification of crimes as serious as sedition". "They want to do justice and legislation tailored to the independentists, without them making any concessions," he lamented after him.
Feijóo has denounced that the "delegitimization of the State" was the "cornerstone" of the independence movement, an idea that, in his opinion, has been adopted by the current government. "I do not know if this strange conversion is due to a deep conviction or is a mere opportunism derived from the urgent need to stay in government," lamented the popular leader.
The pact to renew the CGPJ, which according to La Moncloa was made and only the signature was missing, was blown up last night when the PP reported through a statement of a telephone conversation between Sánchez and Feijóo in which the opposition leader raised an ultimatum to the President of the Government: either he renounces reducing the penalties for the crime of sedition or there will be no agreement.
Upon confirming Sánchez's firm position, the PP suspended the talks indefinitely, despite the fact that this past Tuesday the general secretary of the party, Cuca Gamarra, completely disassociated the reform from the crime of sedition from the CGPJ for being "two different issues ”.
For its part, the PSOE blamed this decision by Feijóo on his “absolute lack of political autonomy” and inability to “resist the pressures of the most reactionary right-wing that, at all times, has been boycotting this negotiation so that it does not come to fruition. ”.
