The president of Castilla-La Mancha, the socialist Emiliano Garcia-Pagehas attacked the law of «democratic memory» agreed by the Government of Pedro Sanchez with its EH Bildu partners. Considers that this regulation should be “an agreement of big parties”instead of a majority “of circumstances”, alluding to the formation led by Arnaldo Otegi.
«If you rely on a majority of circumstances and tomorrow it changes and another majority revises that law, does that mean that you have to forget? What is the story different?», Page asked himself in a press appearance in Madrid together with the president of the region, Isabel Diaz Ayuso.
In this sense, the socialist leader “difficulty understanding” that “speaking from memory” has to depend “on a specific parliamentary majority” such as an agreement with EH Bildu, unless it was “a large majority.” Yes, he defends the “fundamental need, of to repair, to annul injustices», while pointing out that «honestly, there are other mechanisms».
“And my opinion is that these types of regulations have to have the greatest possible consensus effort and with the big parties with a vocation to govern, I see it from that perspective, ”explained Emiliano García-Page.
On the other hand, the regional president has also defended the law that his Executive is going to approve this Tuesday in “reparation and in favor of the victims of terrorism”. “What am I thinking? The best way to express it is what we are going to do tomorrow in the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, which is to approve a law of reparation and in favor of the victims of terrorism. I think that is more eloquent than anything we could raise », he has emphasized.
«The day I see Bildu sign a law of this type, I would begin to think that dirty everything it touches», has apostatized Page.
Several historical PSOE politicians have joined these criticisms of Sánchez for his agreement with EH Bildu. This Monday a manifesto was released in which they emphasize that this new legislation “Distort” the “great constitutional pact” of 1978.
It is an initiative of the Association for the defense of the values of the Transition, which emerged during the Government of Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero in opposition to the 2007 Historical Memory Law and to which people from “different political background”.
