The former socialist leaders called the acting president of the Spanish Government “disloyal” and a “dissident” for negotiating the amnesty demanded by Carles Puigdemont (Junts) and Oriol Junqueras (ERC).
The Secretary of Organization of the PSOE, Santos Cerdán, responded this Thursday to his former leaders Felipe González and Alfonso Guerra that they are the “disloyal” ones, and not Pedro Sánchez, for not respecting the resolutions approved by a majority in the party congresses.
In the halls of Congress, the ‘number three’ of the PSOE has been asked about those statements by the former president of the Spanish Government Felipe González and the former vice president Alfonso Guerra calling Sánchez “disloyal” and a “dissident” for negotiating the amnesty that Carles demands Puigdemont (Junts) and Oriol Junqueras (ERC).
“Those who do not respect the majorities of the party are disloyal, right? -Cerdán answered-. I believe that in 2016 there was a decision by the militants, which was endorsed in the 39th and 40th Congress of the PSOE, and “That is the will and word of the Socialist Party.”
As he said, the PSOE Executive “respects” what its former leaders may say, “but it is not the decision of the Socialist Party, and not like before, but like now, the militants can choose.” In that sense, she has stressed that the militants will be able to speak out on what is agreed upon for a hypothetical investiture of Pedro Sánchez, since he will submit to consultation. In his opinion, the book that Alfonso Guerra presented with Felipe González “will be more successful than the harangues that he is fueling.”
Also the former minister and PSOE deputy for Valencia, José Luis Ábalos, has urged González and Guerra to “respect themselves” and to apply the same loyalty that they demanded at other times.
Ábalos believes that opinion “is very good”, but that also “you have to know when it is appropriate to express it, in what framework and who it serves.” Furthermore, he has pointed out that the opinions of Guerra and González, who consider a possible amnesty to be “blackmail”, are “very debatable.”
Carmen Calvo, former vice president of the Spanish Government, has also been asked, given that she once called the amnesty option unconstitutional, but has focused on criticizing Alfonso Guerra for stating that the leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, is going ” from one hair salon to another.
“What I think about what Alfonso Guerra said about a woman in politics is absolutely detestable, that we are judged by our hair instead of our neurons. Alfonso Guerra has to look at it,” he replied.
