PP makes the Government ugly to avoid reports from the CGPJ on sedition and PSOE and UP urge it to renew the body of judges


The PP has made ugly this Thursday the PSOE and Unidas Podemos to avoid the reports of the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) and the Fiscal Council on the proposal for an organic law that both formations presented to repeal the crime of sedition, while the parties of government coalition have urged the 'popular' to renew the governing body of judges.

This is how they have pronounced themselves in the framework of the debate that took place this Thursday night in the Congress of Deputies on the proposal for an organic law that proposes the modification of the Penal Code. Specifically, the legislative text proposes to repeal the current crime of sedition and replace it with another aggravated public disorder that contemplates for the authorities penalties of 3 to 5 years in prison -compared to 10 to 15 years that the current Penal Code includes-- and disqualification from 6 to 8 years --compared to 10 to 15 years established by the current law--.

The spokesperson for the PP in Congress, Cuca Gamarra, has assured that the proposal of the PSOE and Unidas Podemos is "a tricky initiative" to "get around" the Justice Commission in Congress and the perceptive reports of the Council of State, the Fiscal Council and the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ).

"If the Government itself boasts of it, of the legal solidity of its proposal, of the refinement of its arguments, why have they spared the praise of the CGPJ, the Fiscal Council and the Council of State?", Gamarra pointed out in his turn to speak.

The PSOE deputy Francisco Aranda, in his turn to respond, has questioned Gamarra's word and his loyalty to the current leadership of the PP. The socialist recalled that the 'popular' deputy herself publicly assured that the renewal of the CGPJ and the reform of the crime of sedition were "different issues".

In line, he stressed that the PP, however, 'turned around' days after those words and got up from the table where the names of the 20 members of the governing body of the judges were being negotiated with the PSOE.

"They were his words. Not mine. But I'm not surprised. Coming from someone who supported Soraya (Sáez de Santamaría), (Pablo) Casado, (Alberto Núñez) Feijóo, and who knows if (Isabel Díaz) Ayuso ", he said to later assure - before the murmurs in Congress - that "the truths offend".

Apart from the debate on the reform that repeals sedition, the deputy of Unidas Podemos Jaume Asens has also entered into the pronouncements on the renewal of the CPGJ. Specifically, he stressed that "in a democracy, judges are not in charge, the people are in charge and the people are represented in this House."

Asens has stressed that those of the PP "have put the majority of judges in the leadership." "Most are PP politicians in disguise, that's why they think they have to be the main writers of politics in Spain," he reproached.

In the framework of his speech, the leader of Unidas Podemos has assured that "what is happening with the CGPJ" is "a seditious attitude". "That is indeed an attack on the constitutional order and they tell us that we have to ask the opinion of the CGPJ, who are occupying illegally," he pointed out.

Asens has stressed that "the problem" is that the PP "does not respect the rules of the game." "When they lose, they entrench themselves in an institution because they believe that power is theirs," he said, while assuring that Feijóo's "follow the same script as (the former president of the United States, Donald) Trump and (the former president of Brazil, Jair) Bolsonaro".
