In Junts they are already drawing the 19th, next Tuesday, as the first match ball for Pedro Sánchez. If in three days the European Council does not approve the official status of the Catalan language in the European Union, the president of the Spanish Government would be left with no room to count on the votes of the post-convergents to repeat in the position. Of course, as long as the European body does not postpone the decision this Tuesday and as long as JxCat remains consistent with what it preaches and that the approval of an amnesty law can make the post-convergents rethink theirs, we will not pass a single one .
But the position of Junts should be unmovable, if you pay attention to the words of the number one of the formation in Congress, Míriam Nogueras. "We will not move even a millimeter", he said at the national council that JxCat held yesterday morning in Mataró. The 19th is a litmus test for Sánchez, according to the post-convergents. "We will then see the level of credibility of the PSOE", emphasized Nogueras. But there are a few European countries that have shown reluctance to incorporate Catalan, including Sweden, to whom Manchester City's coach, Pep Guardiola, addressed a video yesterday in which he asks the Swedish prime minister to reconsider it
More evidence that Junts says he will stand by his demands? "We have held our ground and will continue to hold our position, because this is not about matching, and not just about negotiating. It depends on the country, the nation, the mentality of the State and an equal to equal relationship. This is about firmness and making you respect", said the post-convergent.
And Junts is not Left, said Nogueras during his speech. "We will not relax and our legs will not tremble, and we will not lower demands as some do", he said in clear reference to the Republicans, who on Wednesday, through the number two of ERC in Congress, Teresa Jordà, opened the it leads to Sánchez's investiture going ahead with a mere commitment from the Socialists and a timetable for approving the amnesty. Statements that were rectified by the Councilor of the Presidency, Laura Vilagrà, on Friday.
In any case, the leader of Junts in Madrid added spice. He referred to nothing less than the previous president of the central government: "Don't think that time will fix their problems like Rajoy did, because they can take surprises." Sánchez is starting to resemble Rajoy, in his opinion. A hit where it hurts the most.
Carles Puigdemont participated in the national council. Since he has no organic position, he had never done it.
