3 min read

The Minister of Territorial Policy, the socialist Miquel Iceta, believes that the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, should distance himself from the words of the Madrid president, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, asking the Government if “it is going to make the king an accomplice” Felipe VI, you will have to sign the pardons, of an “illegal action”.

Can damage and erode the figure of the King. It would be good if Casado said that this does not represent the position of his party,” he pointed out during an interview on Rac1.

For Iceta, Ayuso’s attempt to “involve the Crown in the mess” organized by the right and the extreme right against pardons is an exhibition of “bad faith or ignorance of what a constitutional monarchy is.”

“The King does not have an opinion and his signature on any official document does not imply his personal opinion, but simply his function of sanctioning what the chambers or the executive branch propose,” he stressed. Still on Ayuso’s words, Iceta has warned that the PP has a “problem” because its “most extreme right” soul is the one that has “the upper hand.”

The PSC minister has assured that he already foresaw that the participation in the demonstration in the Plaza de Colón against the pardons would not be as massive as that of previous similar calls.

“What I expected to happen occurred, it has not meant any change or surprise, it was within the script. When the right wing is angry they go to the Plaza de Colón; long ago they went to the Plaza de Oriente, therefore always we can positively assess the evolution “, he opined, alluding to the concentrations of adherence to the dictator Francisco Franco decades ago.

In this sense, he has admitted that the result of the call gives certain “tranquility” to the Government, although he stressed that in politics it is necessary to “get used to making decisions against the current” and “against surveys.”

Iceta has indicated that the decision on pardons will come before the holidays, but that it is not on the agenda for the Council of Ministers tomorrow Tuesday, although “the agenda is sometimes altered on the fly.”

Casado corrects Ayuso for pointing out the King and says that the person responsible for the pardons is Sánchez The spokesperson for the Popular Party in the Congress of Deputies, Cuca Gamarra.

Assured this Monday that the role of King Felipe VI “is assessed” in the Constitution while ensuring that pardons “are a responsibility of the Government” and of the president, Pedro Sánchez.

Gamarra has expressed this way in an interview on TVE, after the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, wondered this Sunday if the King will sign the pardons to the leaders of the ‘procés’. “What is the King of Spain going to do from now on? Is he going to sign these pardons? Are they going to make him an accessory to that.
