The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has taken advantage of one of his hobbies, basketball, to again vindicate the reform of article 49 of the Constitution that refers to people with disabilities with the term "disabled".
The head of the Executive, after returning from Morocco where yesterday he chaired the high-level bilateral meeting in Rabat, has put on the shirt with the number 49 to play a few minutes of wheelchair basketball with other disabled athletes from the FDI Villa de Leganés and Smart Education Getafe BSR, all with the same number on their bib.
"This morning we proudly wore the 49 on the shirt," the president commented in a message on his Twitter account, in which he added that the experience has been a "basketball lesson but, above all, a life lesson ". "It has been a pleasure to shoot baskets with you", concluded Sánchez, who played in the youth team for Estudiantes as a young man.
The reform of article 49 has been reactivated in the Congress of Deputies after the meeting last week between the Minister of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Democratic Memory, Félix Bolaños, with the spokesperson and general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra .
The PSOE has already contacted the parliamentary spokesmen of the rest of the groups to agree on the text in which they are working to eliminate the term "diminished" from the Magna Carta and achieve a majority greater than the three-fifths required by the constitutional reform. None raised the possibility of a referendum and only Vox did not pick up the phone to join this reform that the Executive trusts will be unanimous.
