Politics The PP calls on Page to fight "the battle" against the amnesty: "If not, he will be as responsible as Sánchez"

The PP believes that the amnesty is "the absolute surrender of the State by socialism to the independence movement." "It is the absolute concession to a criminal fleeing from justice and blackmailing him," only because "he has the seven votes that Pedro Sánchez needs." This is what Cuca Gamarra, general secretary of the 'popular', said after the emergency Steering Committee that Feijóo has convened to analyze the PSOE and Junts pact.

In a press conference in Genoa, he singled out the president of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, because he speaks against the amnesty but does not rebel with actions. This Friday, Page said that "if we have to resort to it, I will do it; if we have to put up a fight, we will do it."

And to that Gamarra responded like this: "We tell you that this is the time to fight. The day after tomorrow it will be too late." For the 'number two' of the PP, if the Castilian-Manchego baron "does not put up a fight while being able to do so, he will be as responsible as Sánchez."

"Stop empty words," he added, and "take a step forward, because Spanish society will thank you." In the PP they want Page to try to get the eight socialist deputies from his community to vote against the amnesty, but sources from the Board completely rule it out, also pointing out that Page did not choose them.

Furthermore, the PP has approached the Canary Coalition, its government partner on the islands, so much that it has closed an agreement with the PSOE to support the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. Although Gamarra believes that "the whitewashing of these agreements affects all those who are going to support this investiture", he did not want to criticize the Canarian nationalists: "They will be the ones who will have to give their explanations to their voters." "This must in no way affect a well-functioning coalition government."

And the PP believes that supporting the investiture is "assuming that Spain does not have a democracy and is assuming that there has been a dirty war by the judges against the independentists, and that justice must be controlled," as it has said. Gamarra.

Gamarra also criticized the PNV agreement with Pedro Sánchez. "He has long linked his future to the PSOE and populism. He will have to give an account of this to his voters. I don't think they voted for him to bet on this economic drift in the Basque Country."

Furthermore, PP sources assure that Genoa is already considering appealing to the Constitutional Court the transfer of Social Security powers to the Basque Country, due to the possible unconstitutionality of the breakup of the single fund.

"It is one more red line that Pedro Sánchez has crossed and it is the rupture of equality also for Spaniards, in terms of the sustainability of the pension system," said Gamarra. "It is breaking a framework of solidarity that guarantees access to a pension in the present, not in the future," he added along the same lines. "The PP will be very attentive to all these agreements," he said.

For the general secretary of the PP, the independentistas "are going to achieve amnesty and the recognition that there is a dirty judicial war in our country" and they will take this to the courts when it is substantiated. "They assume that the judges have political motivations. Also that there are international mediators and debt forgiveness without a constitutional basis," Gamarra added.

Although the most striking thing for the PP is that the PSOE "assimilates the independentists' story" about the 'procés', which seems to them "a pure invention." Gamarra has highlighted that "all" judicial associations have pointed out that this agreement erodes the rule of law and privileges "an unpunished political caste." And on top of that, "this caste is going to judge" the judges, he complained.

That is why he has made an appeal "to all outraged citizens." "We call on all those who want to raise their voices to participate in the rallies on Sunday the 12th at 12 noon."

In that sense, Gamarra has come to doubt that there is a full democracy in Spain: "We are going to work for there to be a full democracy," he said. Later, PP sources have clarified that "it can be improved." "We have entered a very dangerous path," Gamarra concluded.
