He accuses the Government of abandoning the regional presidents, also those of the PSOE, and of forcing the judges to “do health policy”
LA FRONTERA (EL HIERRO), Aug 26 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The leader of the Popular Party, Pablo Casado, has again asked the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, this Thursday, to approve a “pandemic law” that offers a national legal framework to manage the coronavirus crisis and has asked him how many “blows” judicial “and deaths by Covid-19 need to act in this regard.
“But why does Sánchez refuse a pandemic law? That even his barons (of the PSOE) tell him. But why does he leave the autonomies and the judges abandoned, who have to do health policy when it does not correspond to them? “, he said during a visit to the Canary Island of El Hierro.
Casado has referred to the statements of the president of the Balearic Government, Francina Armengol, that, after the Superior Court of Justice of the Balearic Islands (TSJIB) rejected the requirement of a Covid certificate to citizens to allow access to certain events, has underlined the need for a state regulation that “protects” the autonomous communities to take measures.
“The same has happened in Galicia, in Andalusia, in all the autonomous communities that ask the Government, once and for all, for the pandemic law. The one offered by the PP a year ago, the one requested by the Council of State, the that the judges ask for, the one that even the mayors and the socialist autonomous presidents ask for, “the ‘popular’ leader stressed.
He then asked “what more judicial blows Mr. Sánchez needs to say, 120,000 deaths later, that a national regulation is necessary to prevent Covid infections and to limit mobility, complying with the constitutional rights of the Spanish.”
In his opinion, this could be done through an organic law, “modifying a single law and a single article”, and that new legal framework could be approved, “with the votes of the PP”, in just fifteen days. “If Sánchez does not do it, he will have to explain why,” he added.
