The First Vice President of the Government, Carmen Calvo, has openly defended the granting of pardons to those sentenced by the procs because it is a decision that, in his opinion, will give “stability” to the country after years of “turbulence” and allow “turn the page” of situations that “are part of the past and correspond to the mistakes made by the PP.”

In statements made in Sevilla, the number two of the Executive has assured that the Government is willing to “open a different page in Catalonia it has to do “, he said,” with the coexistence of the Spanish and where politics is in the real problems and not in frustrating situations to which the independence movement has led in recent years. “

Calvo believes that after the granting of the pardons, Catalonia will reposition itself in a position of “institutional loyalty.” It is a conviction that obviates the attitude maintained up to now not only by the condemned of the 1-O who insist over and over again that they will once again defy the state and the Constitution, but also by the very parties that make up the new Catalan Executive -ERC and Junts- that insist on a break with the State, the right to self-determination and amnesty.

The vice president of the Government emphasizes that the extreme confrontation between Catalonia and the State is the result of the mistakes made by the Popular Party. And he insists that secessionism replied to them by making the Government of Mariano Rajoy “Two illegal referendums and they skipped the constitutional order.” Calvo does not speak, consequently, of a challenge to the nation by those who came to unilaterally declare the independence of Catalonia, but to the Executive of the PP.

Remember, however, that at that time, the leader of the PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, chose to support the Government in the decisions it adopted – the main one, to activate the Article 155 of the Constitution and intervene the Catalan autonomy-, and consequently now demands from the first opposition party to show the same “responsibility” and “loyalty” and support the decision of the Executive regarding the pardons.

Calvo also argues that the judiciary has already done its job, handing down a sentence and issuing a report on the granting of the measure of grace to the convicted and now the question is situated in “another rationally different space” which is that of the free will of the condemned. Government.

The vice president has also referred to the criticisms that have arisen within the PSOE itself, led by names of the stature of the former president. Felipe Gonzlez; former vice president Alfonso Guerra or the regional presidents Emiliano Garca Page, Javier Lambn O Guillermo Fernndez Vara. Calvo has scorned these opinions, pointing out that making decisions and deciding the position of the party corresponds to those who “have been elected by the militancy” and above all to those who assume “the most important responsibility of the Government of Spain.”
