MADRID, 22 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The deputy of United We Can (UP) Martina Velarde has come out this Tuesday in defense of the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, after the Popular Party (PP) called her "useless and arrogant" in the plenary session on Monday, assuring that "the only thing that has not been useful during these years has been the PP" for the non-renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ).
"The Minister for Equality is not useless, the only thing that has not been useful during these years has been the PP, blocking the CGPJ 'sine die'", said the 'morada' parliamentarian during the debate on the item destined for Justice in the General State Budget (PGE).
Velarde has disgraced the PP for calling Montero "useless" both yesterday and today, due to the controversy aroused by the so-called animal welfare and 'only yes is yes' laws, and has considered that, in relation to the latter , the 'popular' "should give themselves a point in the mouth" after the decree issued by the State Attorney General, Álvaro García Ortiz, to unify criteria.
At this point, Velarde has reproached the PP for saying that they lack respect for the judges when now "they are lacking respect for the Prosecutor's Office."
