He says that the PP will analyze whether to appeal the "nonsense" of the reform of the Regulations
MADRID, 20 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The PP spokesperson and deputy secretary of Open Society and Culture, Borja Sémper, justified himself this Wednesday for using Basque in the Plenary Session of Congress, ensuring that it was a "good idea" to demonstrate that the co-official languages are not the heritage of the nationalists. , although he has assumed that there may be party colleagues who did not like the gesture.
"I still think it was a good idea," said Sémper in an interview on Onda Cero, reported by Europa Press, in which he explained why he used Basque after saying a day before that using the co-official ones in Congress would be doing the wrong thing. cinnamon Furthermore, he has defended that the PP "is not a sect" and there is a diversity of opinions.
Asked if he notified the party leadership that he was going to use it, he claimed that he did "nothing strange" and that there was no need to comment on it, but that in a previous meeting he did say that he would use "some phrase in Basque."
The spokesperson has pointed out that for the PP the co-official languages "are not a problem and have never been", adding that there are deputies in the Popular Group who speak them naturally and emphasizing that they govern in communities where they are used, such as Galicia and Balearics.
Sémper, who has assured that it reflected the "traditional position" of the PP, has reproached the PSOE for now being in favor of the use of co-officials in Congress only because of the "permanent transfer" of Pedro Sánchez to the independentistas to be president.
After stating that he understands that "some" colleagues have a "different opinion" and do not share it, he considered the idea of expressing himself in Basque at some moments of his speech and self-translating as "brilliant", remembering that this could already be done "in an natural" in Congress.
"It is normal that there are different positions in such a large group, nothing happens. I accept it and take note and I will improve if there is a need to improve," he noted, stating that he is "absolutely comfortable" in the PP.
Sémper has said that he is not concerned about the criticism, but that attention is diverted from what is important, which in his opinion is that the Congress Regulations were "altered and forced" by allowing co-official languages in yesterday's plenary session without having been approved. the reform, which he sees as "actionable" because it is not in accordance with the law.
This meant, he denounced, a new attack on the institutions and also on Spanish as a "common" language and "logic of understanding" of the representatives of the Spanish people.
Regarding whether they will appeal the reform of the Congressional Regulations, the 'popular' spokesperson has assured that they are going to "analyze all the possibilities" because they consider it a "nonsense."
Likewise, he has defended that the PP is not the PSOE and does not expel those who think differently, in reference to the expulsion of former leader Nicolás Redondo Terreros, whom he considers a "pure-blooded" socialist.
"Is the Congress of Deputies incapable of agreeing on one language and now it wants us to agree on four or five? Really, what a joke is this?" he asked.
Sémper has criticized that there are politicians who believe they are above the law, which is "Catalanizing Spanish politics in its worst version" due to the influence of the independentists, who want the interests of a few to prevail over the majority, he added.
"There is no talk about the common and shared project of the country, there is no talk about what unites us and what we want to do together. We only talk about what those who want to separate us and those who do not believe in civil friendship want to do." among Spaniards, who have Pedro Sánchez by the chest," he lamented.
The spokesperson has also attacked the desire to make Catalan, Basque and Galician official in the European Union, criticizing the fact that the Minister of Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Albares, dedicates "all his energy" to this issue, which is not a foreign policy problem and is "materially impossible."
Furthermore, he has indicated that it will be "very difficult" to reverse this process, which can polarize Spanish society. "No one wins," she warned.
