The Table of the Congress of Deputies has admitted for processing the regulatory modification proposed by United We Can, ERC and PNV so that in the Lower House the co-official languages are used on equal terms with Spanish. This debate was already addressed last September when in the Senate, a territorial chamber, the use of Galician, Basque and Catalan was extended to make them equal to Spanish.
The step of the Table when qualifying the proposal does not imply a political position, although Vox has already voted against the mere admission for processing. His spokesperson in Congress, Iván Espinosa de los Monteros, has criticized in a press conference that not even the PP has joined forces with him on the matter. The popular until now have always refused to support initiatives like this, although it remains to be seen if with Alberto Núñez Feijóo and his "cordial bilingualism" they are open to a change of position. The PSOE, which a few months ago caused great uncertainty, has not yet discussed the issue internally, according to sources consulted by ABC.
Next week, the Board of Spokespersons will vote on the proposal to modify the Regulations of Congress, with each party taking a position on whether it is in favor or against the proposed change and that the rest of the Spanish languages can be used in the Lower House .
