Investiture pacts, live | Puigdemont warns that the absence of a veto for Catalan in the European institutions is “not enough” | Spain

The incumbent president of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, has assured that he is not thinking about a new election, that all his plans are to work for a progressive executive and that he will be clear on demands such as an amnesty when he receives the order to attempt this his inauguration. Sánchez expressed these reflections in an informal conversation with journalists, covering his participation in various events in New York as part of the start of the new session of the UN General Assembly.

The head of government has stressed that he is reasonably optimistic about reaching an agreement that will allow him to be invested and that this is his plan a, b and c so that there can be a progressive coalition government, because he believes that the numbers are correct. But he has insisted on respecting the time because he now believes that it is the turn of the leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo. Only then will he talk about possible negotiations and demands from factions such as Junts regarding an amnesty and about which informants have asked him.

He has not made any progress in this regard, but he has assured that he will guarantee compliance with the constitutional framework throughout the investiture process. An argument he repeated when asked whether he would demand that the pro-independence parties abandon the path of unilateralism in return for processing the amnesty.

With regard to the process of considering Catalan, Basque and Galician as official languages ​​in European institutions, Sánchez considered it very important to have started a process to recognize these languages. He stressed that Spain had offered to cover the costs and rejected the idea that some of these languages ​​would be banned, although he justified the preference for Catalan based on the number of its speakers. Sánchez considers the attitude of the Vox deputies by leaving the translation headphones behind typical of the actions of the extreme right in the seat of the President of the Government and believes that the person who remains in the wrong is the PP.
