The PSOE and the Spanish Government Respond to Page’s Criticisms
The Spanish government in alliance with the PSOE has responded this Wednesday to the criticism that one of its own, the president of Castilla-La Mancha, has made, of the recent changes to the amnesty law, which remarkably coincide with the latest contributions made by the PP .
Specifically, Page has said that “there is no good terrorism and bad terrorism” and that the PSOE is placing itself “outside the Constitution” for what it has considered concessions to independence.
Reactions of the PSOE
The answers have come from two fronts. On the one hand, the general secretary of the socialist organization, Santos Cerdán, has stated: “The problem raised by others is, what is terrorism? I think the vast majority know it and you should know it,” he said.
On the other hand, the Minister of Transport, Óscar Puente, has stated that García-Page himself has been “on the sidelines of the PSOE for a long time”.
Nuance of Page’s Words
Later, also in Fitur, García-Page, now aware of the crusade that his own party has pushed against him, qualified his words.
The president of Castilla-La Mancha has assured that “what the PSOE is clear about is that it is within the Constitution, the others (with reference to sovereignty) are outside”.
Positioning Regarding Independence
Likewise, he has said that he prefers “a progressive government to a conservative and Vox one”, but that what he is trying “is to make concessions to independence as few as possible”.
The Manchego added that “the PSOE has been a core party in the Constitution, necessary to understand what has happened so far. The magna carta has been viable thanks to the socialists and I want it to continue to be so”, he pointed out.
Reaction to Criticism
“What independence wants is to take us to the border, to the extra-radius, and what is necessary is to try to avoid that,” reiterated Page, who also specified that his intention is for the PSOE to govern, ” but for the lowest possible price.”
Finally, regarding Puente’s criticisms, he assured that he has spent “his whole life winning the PP. What wins the right and the extreme right is not far off”. And he added: “Let’s see if I have to apologize to win the election.”
