This Tuesday, Congress welcomes the swearing-in of the Constitution by Princess Leonor. An event attended by all the powers of the State, deputies, senators, regional presidents, but in which the Government in office will not be in its entirety. Ministers Ione Belarra, Irene Montero and Alberto Garzón will be absent. Pedro Sánchez’s governance partners will also do so: ERC, Junts, PNV, Bildu and the BNG. From The Moncloa This avoids disavowing the ministers’ plan. “The Government will be practically complete.”
” Podemos will not attend this event that only seeks to protect for decades a monarchy that no one elected. All representatives of the State must be democratically elected,” Ione Belarra, acting Minister of Social Rights, stated this weekend on her social networks.
In this way, the Podemos ministers distance themselves from the second vice president and leader of Sumar, Yolanda Díaz, and the head of Universities, Joan Subirats (common), who will attend Leonor’s constitutional swearing-in. Along with them will be the speaker in the Lower House, Martha Loisand the third vice president of the Congress Board, Esther Gil. The second member of Sumar on the Board will not attend, Gerardo Pisarello.
Meanwhile, the leader of IU and Minister of Consumer Affairs, Alberto Garzón, will not attend the event either, given that his party sees it as an act of “exaltation” of monarchical values.
In Sumar they have downplayed these absences by appealing to the “republican vocation” of the coalition and the fact that a “minimum representation” has been decided upon in the oath of the Heir to the Crown “out of institutional respect and respect for the citizens.” . Likewise, they maintain that the withdrawal of up to three members of the Council of Ministers has not generated any internal tension because it falls within the agreed limits.
