Nogueras emphasizes to the president: "With us, don't try to tempt your luck because it won't work for you"
The spokesperson for Junts in Congress, Miriam Nogueras, wanted to make it clear to the socialist Pedro Sánchez that his party, although it has signed an agreement to support his investiture, will not support any initiative if there is no progress. "I'm telling him now, because he has time to give up," she snapped.
In his speech at the investiture debate, he reaffirmed his support for the illegal referendum of October 1 and his commitment to the independence of Catalonia and stressed that anyone who thinks that this investiture agreement means turning the page is wrong because they will "never" do it. . "We are not deceiving anyone, we are faithful to our rights," he stressed. "We have not stopped being that force that promoted the independence referendum."
This being the case, they hope that in this legislature it will really be seen that "things are changing" because, if there is no progress on the issues committed, they will not give their support to any Government initiative. In his opinion, it is better for Sánchez to know before starting: "I'm telling you now, because you still have time to give up," he added.
During his speech, Nogueras reproached Sánchez for not being "brave" in his initial speech and not addressing the Catalan issue directly as established in the agreement signed by the PSOE and Junts, where, as he stressed, he did not There is talk of "reunion, forgiveness or measures of grace", but of an Amnesty Law that ends "judicial repression" and puts an end to an "unresolved" historical conflict.
Nogueras has pointed out that despite the attempts of "many" to make people believe in recent years that the Catalan independentists had to forget about their objectives, even slipping that they had already left them "behind", the truth is that they were "deceiving". And that is why now, she has assured, "it is time to act accordingly and stop hiding the problem." "Are you willing to do it, Mr. Sánchez?" he asked the acting president.
At this point, the Junts spokesperson has stressed that her party will continue fighting so that the great consensuses that emerge from the Catalan Parliament are addressed by the future Government to immediately warn Sánchez that if he wants the legislature to move forward, it will be necessary for Catalonia "things happen" and the agreement "that changes history" is concluded.
"If we are here today it is to make things really change and if there is no progress, we will not support any initiative that your Government presents," warned Nogueras, who advised Sánchez that with Junts "not try to tempt luck, because it won't work."
Nogueras has said that his party is aware of the "risk", the "difficulties" and the "deep discrepancies" of the agreement signed with the PSOE, which has continued to be the party that "embraced" the 155 against Catalonia, just as that Junts has not ceased to be the force that promoted the referendum of October 1, 2017 and the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (DUI).
"We are where we were but we have the opportunity to move forward; now it is about working on the agreed areas," said the Catalan independence activist, to defend that the mediation mechanism agreed upon by the parties to achieve the agreements is now "essential" after listen to Sánchez's speech.
Carles Puigdemont's spokesperson in Madrid concluded by pointing out that Junts wants the best for Catalonia and that is what has led them to agree with a party that has done them "so much harm" and with a Government in which, she assured, Do not trust.
