AGREEMENT The Government will register "today or tomorrow" the reform agreed with the PP to eliminate "disabled persons" from the Constitution

The text to reform article 49 of the Constitution and eliminate the expression "disabled" could be registered this Thursday or tomorrow. That is the Government's intention, as explained by the Minister of the Presidency, Relations with the Courts and Justice, Félix Bolaños.

"I try to be discreet, but [Alberto Núñez] Feijóo has said publicly today that I am holding talks with [the general secretary of the PP, Cuca] Gamarra to register today or tomorrow, whenever, the reform of article 49 of the Constitution. We are working to register it as soon as possible," explained Bolaños at the end of a meeting with the president of the General Council of Spanish Lawyers, Victoria Ortega.

The leader of the PP and the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, agreed to eliminate the term "disabled" from the Magna Carta to replace it with "people with disabilities." PSOE and PP have supported doing so for years, but the PP was distrustful that the reform would open the door to others that the independence movement supported. The agreement guarantees that only that will be reformed.

In his statements at the Ministry of Justice, Bolaños has also made reference to Junts' threat not to support the first royal decree of this legislature, believing that one of its articles makes the application of the amnesty difficult.

The minister describes it as "a misunderstanding", since the royal decree on "recovery, Transformation and Resilience in matters of public justice service" only puts in writing what was already happening in the daily practice of the courts in the submission of preliminary rulings to the Court of Justice of the EU. The article establishes that the procedures regarding which a consultation is made to the Luxembourg court will be paralyzed.

Things "are exactly the same as when the decree came into force," insisted Bolaños, who has warned that European aid worth 10 billion depends on the approval of the Justice reforms included in the royal decree.
