The PNV will not attend the swearing-in ceremony of the Constitution of the Princess Eleanor next Tuesday, October 31, despite the fact that he did so represented by the president José Antonio Ardanza, by deputies and senators on January 30, 1986 when Felipe VI did so. The attack by the Basque nationalists on the heir to the Crown was made public yesterday, just 72 hours after the president Urcullu will accompany the King in the Family Business Congressan event also attended by the president of the PNV Andoni Ortuzar.
The PNV communicated its decision not to attend the oath of the Constitution through two brief messages on social networks. The leadership of the nationalist party agreed yesterday on its decision – the Euzkadi Head Assembly (EBB) usually meets on Mondays – and argued that next Tuesday’s event aims at the “continuity of a model that denies Basque national recognition.”
Furthermore, the nationalists now claim to “not feel comfortable” in the event that will take place next Tuesday, interpreting it as a “civil-military exhibition” similar to the celebration of the National Holiday Day on October 12.
