The general secretary of the Andalusian PSOE, Juan Espadas, already recoil versus a Montero Law that has defended at all costs despite having benefited more than 700 sexual offenders. After weeks of indifference to this fact, this Monday Espadas expressed his desire that “it be possible to reach an agreement” with the formations that support the Government of Pedro Sánchez to carry out the bill that the Socialist Group has presented in Congress of the Deputies to reform the Law of Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom, better known as the Law of only yes is yes.
“I would be an agreement within the natural, and the spirit of collaboration of a project of a coalition government”, has blurted out Swords. However, and in view of the rejection that United Podemos – a partner of the PSOE in the central coalition government – have been communicating about said socialist initiative, Swords has apostilled that, “in parliament”when there is a proposal “on the table, it is transparent and, therefore, those who also want to add their votes, are welcome to correct what obviously must be corrected as soon as possible.”
That’s how he moved it Swords in an attention to media during a visit to La Puebla de Guzmán (Huelva)and questions from journalists about the differences between the partners of the coalition government to reform the Law of ‘only yes is yes’, driven from the Ministry of Equality who drives Irene Montero.
The leader of PSOE-A He has argued that “what there is is an attempt at negotiation, an agreement to technically and legally correct a law that, without a doubt, our country needed, because it was necessary to propose comprehensive care for victims that was much more powerful and solid than the one we had before”, and to which, as he has criticized, the PP “voted no, as the ‘popular’ always do” “every time any issue has to be raised that means protecting women more and better”, has denounced
Espadas has admitted that said law, “Indeed, it has caused problems”which he has even branded as “serious when it comes to being interpreted by the judges”, in such a way that “it has left a gap, a gap through which interpretations fit”, which are, “unfortunately, many more than what of those that should be”, because there should be “none”, as he has added, and that “lead to processes of reduction of sentences or release of convicted persons due to these circumstances.”
“That is what must be tackled, what must be corrected,” he has sentenced John Swords before adding that he is “convinced that this is going to happen at last, and imminently, if possible with an agreement with the political forces that support the Government», but, if it is not possible, he has remarked that «the proposal is on the table Socialist Partyand will be supported by those who believe that this issue must indeed be corrected.
Gag in Andalusia
They threatened to gag and only a few days later the censorship reached the Parliament of Andalusia. The parliamentary groups of the Andalusian PSOE (PSOE-A), Por Andalucía (Podemos) and Adelante Andalucía (Teresa Rodríguez’s formation) prevented a few days ago with their votes that the agenda of the plenary session of the Chamber included a non-legal proposal of the Andalusian PP (PP-A) demanding a favorable position of the institution on the urgent reform of the Law of Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom, better known as the Law of only yes is yes or Montero Lawand the depuration of responsibilities for its “undesirable” effects.
The Board of Speakers of Parliament, in charge of approving the agenda of the plenary session, has rejected, with the votes of the three groups on the left, the inclusion of said initiative on the agenda. The PP-A only found the support of the Vox Group for it to join.
