The Cs deputy spokesperson in Congress asks the Government "to increase investment in science and technology to 2% of GDP"
"We will ask the Government if the reform of the crimes of sedition is a request from ERC in exchange for voting in favor of the PGE," he said. the deputy spokesperson for Cs in Congress, Edmundo Bal, at the press conference after the meeting of the Permanent Committee of the orange formation. "The Minister of Justice has come to recognize in a national newspaper a reform of the crimes of sedition a la carte, of specific cases, which does not seek the general interest, as was the suppression of Castilian as a vehicular language in the Education law, ”he said.

"It has not been admitted in the Budget law, but we will continue fighting, because this is the future of Spain ", has added.
