It was the day destined for Princess Leonor. Her oath of the Constitution. All the protagonism of her for her. But in Congress there was another person to whom many eyes were directed: Santos Cerdán, socialist deputy and Secretary of Organization of the PSOE, who had just arrived from Brussels, where on Monday he met with Carles Puigdemont. The fugitive from Justice and leader of Junts was the other protagonist who hovered over the session. The photo, one of the most talked about issues behind the scenes.
For Ximo Puig, senator and leader of the Valencian socialists, the image of the meeting is not uncomfortable. “No, I believe that we must try to advance concord, and to advance concord we must respect each other,” he explained upon his arrival at the Congress. The meeting between the PSOE delegation and Puigdemont also took place in a room presided over by an image of 1-O – a girl holds an urn that was used to celebrate the illegal consultation, cheered by the rest of the people -, and that was not could be seen in the images provided by the PSOE.
“All the steps taken to advance in the formation of a government are absolutely favorable,” said the former president of Valencia. “Beyond the images, the important thing is that progress is made to agree that there is a Government of progress.”
For Carmen Calvo, former first vice president of the Government, the photo of PSOE number 3 with Puigdemont “is part of the normality of a country that, after elections, wants, must and needs to have a Government soon.”
Emiliano Garcia-Page, president Castilla la Mancha, and that at the meeting of the Federal Committee of the PSOE, in which Pedro Sánchez embraced the amnesty, he expressed his rejection of forgiveness before his colleagues, from whom he received criticism, he has predicted that there will be “even more serious photos in the future.” At the reception in the Royal Palace the day of the National holidayPedro Sánchez, in an informal conversation with journalists, did not rule out speaking with Puigdemont.
