The Socialist Party of the Valencian Country (PSPV) denounces that in the Valencian Courtsthe Valencian autonomous parliament, is being processed a Non-Law Proposition (PNL) in which Pedro Sánchez is accused of committing a coup d’état. The president of the Chamber is Llanos Massó, a Vox deputy.
Gabriela Bravosocialist deputy and second vice president of Les Corts, regretted this Tuesday that “the PP has given in to the extreme right and is processing a Vox initiative in Les Corts Valencianes that violates the regulations and accuses the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, of a crimewhen talking about a coup d’état in Spain in reference to his recent investiture.”
“A statement that is not only uncertain but also represents a very serious accusation speaking of a criminal act against a democratically elected Government,” added Bravo, who recalled that the central Executive “has the support of 179 deputies of Congress and that emanates of the will of more than 12.5 million voters”.
In his opinion, “the initiative registered by the extreme right violates articles 104 and 157 of the regulations on decorum and good practices by including a quote in which, verbatim and among other insulting expressions, it is stated that ‘a coup d’état in Spain'”. And he adds that this agreement does not have protection in freedom of expression, nor in the right to political participation, but is simply “a partisan use of the institutions that affect the integrity of the chamber and democracy in the Valencian Community”.
Bravo points out that at the request of the PSPV-PSOE, the representatives of the PP and Compromís decided at the time not to admit this PNL for processing and to require Vox to reformulate the initiative by deleting two paragraphs that violated the regulations.
This agreement of the members of the Board was based on the references that made it unfeasible to process the initiative by including slander, falsehoods and disqualifications towards the Government that are not allowed in the Chamber’s regulations.
Now, however, and given Vox’s refusal to reformulate the text, “the PP has backed down to agree to the far-right claims and process the text”, they lament from the PSPV-PSOE. “It is very serious that the Table of Les Corts has accepted this Non-Law Proposition,” Bravo concludes.
The PP denies these accusations from the Valencian socialists. The PP ombudsman in Les Corts, Miguel Barrachinahas assured that it is “radically false” that the Valencian parliament has processed “no initiative that imputes any crime” to the President of the Government, “neither the coup d’état nor any other.”
