the coalition PSOE-We can He goes through his most difficult hours. This is recognized by leaders of the two parties that make up the Government. The imposition by Pedro Sanchezforcing to reform the law of only yes is yes imminently in the coming weeks, has taken the purple formation by surprise. A change that also brings closer the break between the two government partners. Both agree that “it is the most serious part of the legislature.”
And it is that the movement of forcing Irene Montero to modify the norm, the head of the Executive has agreed only with the second vice president and institutional leader of United We Can, Yolanda Diazwithout prior consultations with Montero or with Ione Herb. “It will be done, period, without conditions, the president says so,” they say in their environment. There are no nuances or other options. Sánchez has acted like this very rarely, because doing so means forcing his government partner to accept a testimonial role.
Quite a few weeks ago, since the first sentence reductions took place, in Moncloa they considered making changes to the law. But the impact that they know it will have on the relationship between socialists and podemitas has slowed Sánchez down. In the President’s Cabinet they were trying to reach an agreement with the Ministry of Equality that has not yet been reached. And, judging by the reactions of Belarra, Pablo Echenique or Ángela Rodríguez Pam, it does not seem close. Therefore, he has decided to act.
And it is that “the electoral cost that the trickle of sentence reductions can have for us is very high,” they recall in Ferraz. That is what has moved Pedro Sanchez to give in to pressure from his own party mates. Some barons want to go further and ask to break directly with their partners. In Moncloa they hope that the purple ones will leave by dint of tensing the relationship and imposing decisions like this or sending weapons and tanks Leopard a Ukraine.
After three years of continuous transfers to Podemos, especially in terms of Equality, as the elections approach the PSOE tries to differentiate itself and mark ground. Forcing even his partner to assume positions that he had always rejected until now. Making him enter into contradictions to wear him down electorally. Hence, the podemites are not willing to give their arm to twist with the reform of the law of only yes is yes unless it is Sánchez who assumes the rulings that they do not recognize and always exempting Montero from any responsibility.
Sánchez has an ally in all this mess: Yolanda Díaz. A few days after putting black on white on the paper of the relationship that she wants to have with Podemos in the face of the general elections, damaging the image of the party that made her minister is her main mission. The speed with which she and Moncloa want to reform the rule has one objective: that the next CIS reflect the electoral impact that Montero’s error may have. It will be the moment that Yolanda Díaz awaits to set the conditions for her to run with Podemos in the elections. Without her initials and choosing the candidates.
