Less than 24 hours after the government and PP announced that they were negotiating the renewal of the constitutional bodies, the agreement was produced, which was announced at noon. Government and PP confirm the agreement to renew the Constitutional, the Ombudsman, the Court of Accounts and the Data Protection Agency. The Council of the Judicial Power remains outside.
The Minister of the Presidency, Felix Bolaños, held on Wednesday afternoon a meeting with the general secretary of the PP, Teodoro García Egea, to deal with this renewal of the constitutional bodies. The meeting took place hours after the Government showed its willingness to speak “today” about the renewal, picking up the offer launched during the control session of Congress by Pablo Casado.
After these conversations, the Secretary of State for Communication and the Popular Party have sent a joint statement on Thursday saying that “the Socialist Party and the Popular Party have reached an agreement that will allow the renewal of the Constitutional Court, the Court of Accounts, the Defender of the Town and the Agency of Protection of Data “.
“The renewal of these bodies will be carried out in a plenary session that is expected to be held the week of October 25, both in the Congress of Deputies and in the Senate.”
“The people who will be part of these bodies in the new stage will be of recognized prestige and consensus and will be announced in the coming days,” concludes the note sent from the Government and from the party led by Pablo Casado.
