Government and PP admit that the pact to renew the institutions was closed in February

In just 24 hours, the Government and PP announced the return to negotiations to renew the institutions and, later, a pact to unblock the Constitutional Court, the Ombudsman, the Court of Accounts, and the Spanish Agency for Data Protection. An express agreement that, however, had already been closed since February.

This has been admitted by the Minister of the Presidency himself, Felix Bolaños, and the PSOE spokesman in Congress, Hector Gomez at a press conference held in the courtyard of Congress after the agreement was announced: “The negotiations had been hard-fought since February. The agreement had been well advanced since then.”

These statements, made by Gómez, have been ratified minutes later by Teodoro Garcia Egea. The general secretary of the PP has admitted that eight months ago, in the negotiations to elect the new RTVE council, “there was a high level of consensus” for the renewal of the institutions confirmed this Thursday.

The reform of the CGPJ, “feasible”

Both the Government and the PP have congratulated themselves on this agreement and have vindicated their willingness to understand. Each one, yes, has claimed their own role to reach the pact.

In this sense, Bolaños has highlighted the “satisfaction of the Government” for “renewing institutions that have been outside the constitutional mandate for three years.” He also claimed that the Executive’s goal is “that Let’s get the organs to function normally in democracy“.

The minister of the presidency, those yes, has warned that “we have work left”, referring to the non-renewal, still, of the CGPJ. The objective, he pointed out, is that “the agreement is extended there.” A message in which Héctor Gómez has influenced: “The renewal of the CGPJ is feasible this legislature. It is also desirable, and we are ready to reach an agreement. “

The socialist spokesman has assured that what has changed, in the last 24 hours, has been the position of the PP. A thesis totally contrary to that of the popular ones. According to García Egea, institutional renewal has been unlocked “after Pablo Casado has taken the initiative“and” has reached out to Pedro Sánchez. “

According to the general secretary of the PP, the party has made the government understand that “there was understanding for these bodies that are going to be renewed and not yet for the CGPJ” and that, therefore, “an agreement could be reached for these institutions and continue negotiating for the CGPJ“.

García Egea stressed that “figures of recognized prestige” will be chosen, and that all names will be “by consensus.” In addition, he stressed that it is a “PP-PSOE pact”, insisting that Podemos has been left out of the talks.
