ERC will vote against the decree of measures for the war, which will save Bildu

MadridEls contactes entre ERC i el PSOE per intentar reconduir la situació per l’escàndol del Catalangate no han donat resultat les últimes hores i els republicans han decidit castigar el govern espanyol i votaran en contra del reial decret de mesures per pal·liar els efectes de the war in Ukraine. Tensions have been rising in recent days, but were triggered yesterday following statements by Defense Minister Margarita Robles in which she justified espionage to pro-independence activists. Together and the CUP will also vote against the decree.

However, the future of the royal decree is on track after Bildu announced its vote in favor. His spokeswoman, Mertxe Aizpurua, justified his vote because “citizens should not pay for the mistakes of this government.” The government agreed to process the royal decree as a bill so that the groups could introduce amendments in a last-ditch attempt to gain the support of the PP. These, however, are demanding a commitment to reduce taxes to vote in favor, which has not yet arrived. In fact, People’s Deputy Jaime de Olano has confirmed that they will not support the decree because the government has not been open to negotiating any of its measures: “They have not done so because they have long chosen a partner. Bildu votes today on decree and Sanchez allows him access to state secrets. “

In the court of Congress, the person in charge of defending the royal decree has been the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, who has defended that today the future of the government is not voted: “Today this is not about the government but about the citizens who “It is easy for them to help them in their lives. Those who vote against it are harming the people for the sole purpose of harming the government.” The decree includes measures such as the bonus of 20 cents per liter of gasoline and diesel, the 2% cap on the rise in rents or tax cuts on the price of electricity.

Amb la decisió dels republicans, s’obre un cisma entre els governs català i espanyol. Yesterday, the President of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, demanded the resignation of the Minister of Defense. “She is politically incapacitated,” he said. In a statement, ERC said it had taken the decision after the Spanish government “did not take responsibility for the Pegasus case” and warned that it was a “first warning to the Spanish government”. “To start the minister responsible for this scandal, she must resign. None of this has happened so far,” they say.

However, Republicans avoid breaking all bridges with the PSOE and say they will continue to have “an outstretched hand to push for measures to support the people” and that they will continue to lead “negotiations to resolve the political conflict.” Of course, this negotiation must be given with “minimum guarantees”. With today’s decision by the Republicans, what is at stake is the majority of the investiture and stability of the Spanish government. In the coming days we will have to see if the crisis caused by espionage is reversed or if we enter a new phase of the Spanish legislature.

Together and the CUP

Junts spokeswoman Míriam Nogueras also defended the no to the decree: “Independenceism cannot give stability to a government that spies on us.” Nogueras has demanded that the no of Junts, ERC and the CUP to this regulation be the final step to end the dialogue with the Spanish government. “Let’s end the fictitious dialogue with these people, who neither want nor respect us. A dialogue that never finds and will never find a date on the calendar,” he added. From the ERC, Montse Bassa, has limited herself to denouncing that “if they want to know their vote, ask the CNI or Robles”. Junts MPs applauded the Republican MP’s speech.

The CUP deputy, Albert Botran, has asked himself: “How can we trust a government that does nothing or, worse, in the face of obvious evidence of espionage, pulls its chest?”. The PDECat, on the other hand, will vote in favor of the decree because it considers that Catalangate should be separated from measures that affect the lives of citizens. Bel, however, called Robles’ statements yesterday “unpresentable.”

Faced with the ERC’s no, Unidas Podem spokesman Pablo Echenique has called for the defense of the “multinational majority” and has once again denounced the “democratic shame” of Catalangate. Echenique has highlighted the “responsibility” of forces such as EH Bildu, which will vote in favor of this “social shield” that the lilacs consider essential to deal with the crisis.
