The popular deputy secretary assures that he made it clear to the leader of the PSOE that the negotiation to renew the CGPJ “started from scratch”
The new twist in the particular battle between the Government and the PP for the renewal of the Judiciary has led Esteban González Pons today to recount how, in the first meeting he had with Félix Bolaños, the popular leader made it clear to him that the new The PP leadership would not take into account any agreement or secret pact that the previous leadership had reached with the Socialists. A condition that, according to Pons, the Minister of the Presidency of the Government accepted not without first -says the deputy secretary- “threatening to filter them”
Pons has reproached the Executive for filtering them at this time and has accused them of clouding any possible negotiations between the two formations. The document in question, whose date is October 21, 2021, came to light yesterday and made reference to an agreement between PSOE and PP to renew the CGPJ four years later.
It was not the only paper that included agreements with the previous leadership of the PP that Bolaños showed Pons at that meeting. “That document, like others, was put on the table by Bolaños telling me that there were some secret pacts with the PP and that first day I told him I didn’t want to.”
In addition, in that meeting, according to the PP deputy secretary, Bolaños agreed to negotiate from scratch and even “admitted that he could agree on the role that we had presented him with.” However, Pons assures, the socialist leader used as an argument for finally not doing it that the pact that the Executive had reached with ERC made it impossible for them to reach another agreement with the PP so quickly«.
For this reason, the deputy secretary in charge of negotiating with the Government for the renewal of the judiciary has insisted that it is the Executive that “has to decide with whom it agrees”, but has remarked that the PP maintains its “hand outstretched”.
