The Congress Board gave the green light this Tuesday to the processing of the proposal for an Organic Amnesty Law that the PSOE registered after agreeing on the text with the independentists of ERC and Junts, a qualification that has gone ahead with the votes in favor of the deputies of the PSOE and Sumar and with the rejection of the PP. The decision of the governing body of the Chamber comes after the legal report prepared by the Chamber’s lawyers in which it was pointed out that the PSOE text does not present a “glaring contradiction” with the Constitution that would motivate its veto, although it admits doubts of unconstitutionality. which the TC may resolve at the time, but which are not the responsibility of the Board to elucidate.
Both the PSOE, as a signatory of the initiative, and its investiture partners demanded last week that the bill be processed urgently., although this issue will be seen once the proposal is taken into consideration by the Plenary in the coming weeks. The urgent procedure means that all parliamentary deadlines will be reduced by half, accelerating the presentation of full and partial amendments and advancing their debate in the Plenary Session of Congress. And it is that The PSOE’s plan is to approve the law in Congress in December for submission to the Senate, where the PP has an absolute majority and intends to slow down the processing to a maximum of two months. that establishes the Constitution.
In addition to qualifying the proposal for the Organic Amnesty Law, This Tuesday, the Congress Board discussed the document registered by the PP asking to challenge the general secretary of Congress, Fernando Galindo.so that it could not issue a report or advise the Chamber during the processing of the aforementioned legislative initiative. For the ‘popular’, Galindo lacks “impartiality and objectivity” to report on this initiative for having been until a few weeks ago deputy director in the Ministry of Territorial Policy and for his wife having served until the same dates as general director of Relations with the Cortes in Moncloa. However, the PSOE and Sumar have responded in the governing body of the Lower House that “there is no room” for recusal, especially with a reason that “is not true”, as parliamentary sources have confirmed.
At the end of the meeting, the first secretary of the Board and deputy of Sumar, Gerardo Pisarello, has congratulated himself that the PP has not managed to block the processing of the law and has stressed that the initiative has been given the green light “in the same way” that in previous weeks Vox proposals that it considers have been qualified “a political aberration” such as those that seek to outlaw independence parties or withdraw the nationality of immigrants.
