We can and the partners of Pedro Sánchez refuse to support the statement of condemnation to ETA that the PSOE provided with the PP

The attempt to agree on an institutional statement to condemn ETA at the tenth anniversary of the end of the Band Terrorist Activity ran on Tuesday and was definitively won this Wednesday. The refusal of PSOE's parliamentary partners to subscribe the text caused socialists to decide not to insist more, according to negotiation sources.

What happened? That Bildu, United We can and ERC gave a slam to the PP's proposal, and that is enough for the statement to not be approved, since the unanimity of the cameras is required. Republicans and purple said "no" to popular, according to the sources consulted.

On the part of the United States, we can be Txema Guijarro, Secretary General of the Parliamentary Group. In addition, JXCAT did not give a definitive answer. At the last minute of this Wednesday, I still "watching" the subject. And the PNV did not answer either.

Given the position of its partners, the PSOE resigned himself not to sign the text, which was already in a dead end. And he moved to the popular parliamentary group that if he got the OK of the other eight groups of the deputies congress, he would add his rubric, according to the same sources. The Socialists explained that at the time the document could no longer be approved, continuing to try not to do not lead to anything or had "another purpose".

The sequence of the facts demonstrates that the negotiation was truncated at the time when Bildu revealed that it would not subscribe a document in which ETA is explicitly condemned and it is said that terrorist violence should never have existed.

All this, in the week in which Arnaldo Otegi showed his sorrow for the pain of the victims, but did not condemn the band or ordered forgiveness for the more than 800 murders.

On Tuesday, the PP and the PSOE agreed on the Senate a joint text, but Bildu's refusal caused socialists to resulted in considering that the measure had been politicized, without pointing to any particular group. This newspaper has verified that the spokesperson for the Socialists in the High Chamber, Eva Granados, and the popular counterpart of her, Javier Maroto, agreed on the final text of the Declaration for the tenth anniversary of defeat. And both were satisfied with the definitive wording.

The PP continued to try it on Wednesday, without success. In that test, sources of the party accused the PSOE of "shielding" in the refusal of their partners so as not to push more towards the approval of the text of condemnation to terrorism. This controversy has occurred after Maroto ensured that the statement sought to "portray" Bildu, which he considers that he has done.
