The general secretary of the Popular Party, Cuca Gamarra, charged this Tuesday against the agreement reached between the PSOE and ERC on a future amnesty law for those accused of the Catalan sovereignty process and has criticized that the PSOE kneels in front of the independence movement. "Sanchez's ambition has swallowed up his initials," she lamented.
The PP spokesperson in Congress has also pointed out that the agreement has been closed "at night and treachery", on the night of the eve of November 1, All Saints' Day, emphasizing that, according to the statement distributed by both parties , in ERC they already consider "their expectations regarding the amnesty have been met."
"The same ones who committed the crime are writing a clean slate. And the PSOE, kneeling. Sánchez's ambition has swallowed up his initials," Gamarra reproached in a message published on the social network X, collected by Europa Press.

The 'popular' have also reproached Sánchez for "apologizing to the independentists in the name of Spain in exchange for being able to remain in power" and have stressed that the PSOE, being "aware of the dishonorable nature of its concessions," communicates the pact with ERC "at night", using the "historic day" of Princess Leonor's swearing-in "to dilute the attention of the Spanish people and take focus away from their decisions."

At this point, the PP has recalled that the Government of Pedro Sánchez has already promoted other measures for the Catalan independence movement such as "reducing embezzlement, eliminating the crime of sedition and pardoning those convicted by the process" and "now advocates amnesty for escapees ". "There is no transfer that Sánchez is not willing to make," he warned.
On the other hand, Alberto Núñez Feijóo's party has warned that the next transfer, in its opinion, will be "aiming at an asymmetrical distribution of funds, in which the demands of the independentists prevail over the needs of the rest of the territories of Spain. compromising the provision of public services in those Autonomous Communities that Sánchez considers secondary".
"The agreement openly recognizes that citizens will pay the independentists the price they have demanded from Sánchez to make him president, which confirms that the demands exceeded those established within the framework of the amnesty," denounced the PP, which has also accused to Pedro Sánchez to "buy time in La Moncloa with the money, but also with the equality, of all Spaniards." "In this humiliation for our country, as in many other things, the general secretary of the PSOE will have the Popular Party in front of him," he warned.
