He urges Sanchez to deliver to Torra the document of the sentence for which he has been convicted and disqualified for disobedience, during the meeting he will have with him in Barcelona, ​​“so that he finds out that he cannot continue to be president of the Generalitat "

“Instead of signing a blank check to Torra to continue insulting the Justice and recognize him as the legitimate president of the Generalitat, let Sanchez let him know that the TSJC has sentenced him as someone who should not go one minute ahead of the Generalitat, ”he says.

He denounces that "Sánchez is paying the price of his investiture and fulfilling his commitments with Torra and Bildu while ignoring his commitments with the Spaniards."

“If the president of the Government respects Justice, the judges, the legal system; he respects himself and the country he represents, he should deliver this sentence, ”he says.

He asks Sanchez if he would meet with any regional president who had been disqualified and convicted and assures that if he is going to do it with Torra it is for the “spurious reason that he needs him to continue in the armchair of Moncloa”.

He affirms that the fundamental thing is to say to Sanchez that “no smoke screen will cover that he has appointed the number five of the PSOE for Madrid as the State's attorney general”.

He criticizes that, in yesterday's interview, Sánchez referred to Dolores Delgado as an “independent” person when he has been on the PSOE lists and has intervened in PSOE meetings. "No smoke screen will cover that and the fact that he will meet a condemned," he reiterates.

He assures that, at this time, “the Attorney General, deputy number five of the PSOE, is a fundamental piece for Sanchez to fulfill his commitments that the Prosecutor's Office serve Torra and Junqueras and not Spain”.

He stresses that "the PP has long been defending the freedom of parents to choose the education of their children" and ensures that "the PSOE is upset that parents are free to choose the education they want for their children."

"Ministers must be aware that the Spaniards also want to be able to choose like them the center where they take their children to be educated."

SAR Report

For questions regarding the report of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) On the inclusive language in the constitutional text, the vice president has stressed that "what I wanted a year and a half ago was to help formal and official language, and that our splendid language be updated with what is normal in the street : They call us vice-presidents, ministers, deputies, mayors or councilors.
