The Government has managed to circumvent the vetoes of the nationalists to the National Security bill thanks to the PP, which, however, has not given it "a blank check" and has asked it to take its hand in the parliamentary process to negotiate item by item.
In the absence of the vote, which will take place at the end of the Plenary Session of Congress, the project defended this Thursday by the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, will begin its parliamentary journey after the PP has announced its rejection of the amendments to the entire presented by ERC and JxCat.
Some vetoes for the return of a text in which the Catalan nationalists, but also other parties such as PNV or EH Bildu, have seen a violation of regional powers and fundamental rights.
Bolaños has denied these extremes, has said that this regulation is "essential" and has explained that he only intends to guarantee that the strategic resources are adequate and provide the State with tools so that it can anticipate crises, after the lessons learned with the pandemic and given the situation we are experiencing due to the war in Ukraine.
In defense of her two vetoes, the ERC deputy Montserrat Bassa wanted to dispel the doubts that arose this Wednesday regarding the possibility of withdrawing them. And she has been blunt: "We maintain the amendments and we will never pass a law like this."
His main argument has been the following: "We are against the National Security Law for our own security." "It's nothing more than a 155 undercover to take competitions from us in the face."
It seems to ERC that the project, which modifies the 2015 law approved with the PP government, "buys the mental framework of the right", "serves all the repressive resources on a silver platter for use by Vox and PP when they arrive to power" and grants Moncloa the possibility of "centralizing" all regional powers.
Miriam Nogueras has been the one in charge of defending the amendment to the entirety of JxCat to a law that "fulminates" the powers of Catalonia and that "the wolf" has written, alluding to the right.
Neither the CUP nor EH Bildu have been convinced by the project because of what it means as a "centralizer", nor has the PNV, whose deputy Mikel Legarda has insisted that the text "does not fit well" with the territorial state or with the police integral of Catalonia and Euskadi.
From Ciudadanos, Miguel Gutiérrez has considered that someone "with the slightest sense of State" cannot support a project that puts the secrets of the State in the hands of "enemies of the State", and has censured the coalition government for turning security national "in currency of exchange".
The Vox deputy Javier Ortega Smith, who has announced his group's rejection of the pro-independence veto, has warned Minister Bolaños not to relax because, as he has advanced, they are not going to support a government bill " disloyal" with the national interest and that gives more legal prerogatives and more capacity to act to a president who has put national security at risk.
Ortega Smith has reminded "together for the coup and the republican left" that it is a law that speaks of the national security of Spain and not of ensuring nationalism, and has warned them that when Vox arrives at the Government they will not be to spy but is going to investigate them to put them on the bench and outlaw them.
Meanwhile, the PP deputy Juan Antonio Callejas has lamented that the current "misgovernment" has left the members of the CNI "at the feet of the horses", as evidenced by the dismissal of its director for investigating those who want to break Spain and by demand of these, a decision with which the Government has "once again" put its own political survival above national interests.
Callejas has wondered why the ministers or the Prime Minister who have not followed the security guidelines regarding their mobiles that the National Cryptologic Center gave them do not resign.
The popular deputy has made it clear that the PP's rejection of the amendments is not a blank check and has asked the Government to take the PP's outstretched hand to negotiate article by article of this law with which "Mr. Pedro Sánchez can confiscate your assets and oblige you to perform benefits and services without any type of financial compensation and leaving everything at the mercy of the president".
United We Can also facilitate the processing of the project, as announced by Ismael Cortés Gómez, who has defended that national security must be defined through coordination mechanisms between the State and the communities, for which he has asked that the scheme to be design takes "duly into account" the competencies of each scenario.
