Pedro Sánchez and Alberto Núñez Feijóo will meet this Monday at 5:00 p.m. in Congress, within the framework of the round with the parties that the socialist candidate is carrying out after being proposed by the King as a candidate for the investiture. An appointment in which, however, that investiture will not be the lead motive of the same, since even Sánchez himself has ruled out asking for support from the popular.
At the meeting, what the socialist general secretary will do is ask the leader of the PP to agree to renew the General Council of the Judiciary, whose mandate has expired for five years.
This is a courtesy meeting. Protocolary. Sánchez wants to meet with all the groups in Congress, except with Vox – a formation that he vetoes – and in that purpose he could not leave out the main opposition party. However, the expectations of the meeting are the same as when it took place on the occasion of Feijóo’s investiture: null.
Because Sánchez is not even going to ask the PP to move from its vote against. He is determined not to waste a minute on that. “I consider it out of place knowing the political positions and the political and territorial alliances that the PP and Feijóo are making,” he said in reference to the pacts with Vox. Yes, he will focus on asking, once again, the leader of the PP to address the renewal of the General Council of the Judiciary, whose mandate has expired for five years.
PSOE and PP were about to seal an agreement to renew the governing body of judges in October 2022. But a call between both leaders, with Sánchez in South Africa, truncated an agreement that was considered absolutely closed. In it the socialist informed the popular his intention to reform the Penal Code to modify the crimes of sedition and embezzlement. A decision that sought to please the nationalists.
