The PNV law to limit the inviolability of the King is rejected, with PSOE and United We Can separate when voting

This legislature has born a new tradition in the Table of the Congress of Deputies. In everything related to the Head of State, the PSOE and United We Can, coalition partners in the Government, vote separately. This time, the socialists had it easy because, as on most occasions, the criteria of the lawyers accompanied them. The admission to process of the PNV bill to limit the inviolability of the King was debated, discouraged by the legal services of the Lower House.

Said and done. Although the criterion of the lawyers is not binding, the socialists follow it to the letter when it comes to issues that affect the Crown. The opposite happens in United We Can, where legal arguments matter little when torpedoing the Monarchy is within reach.

The PSOE and the PP have voted against the admission for processing, leaving only United We Can. Vox, this Tuesday, has not participated in the meeting due to illness of its representative in the Table, Ignacio Gil Lázaro, although from the party they report that, previously, he transferred to the president of the Lower House, Meritxell Batet, his support for the criterion legal services not to process the PNV proposal.

The PNV's bill sought to limit the inviolability of the King, not to suppress it, modifying article 55 bis of the Organic Law of the Judiciary. However, the lawyers warned in their report, to which ABC has had access, that in order to touch up inviolability, a constitutional reform is necessary with all that this entails. According to his criteria, an organic law is not enough, although these require an absolute majority of Congress to move forward.

The PNV spokesman in Congress, Aitor Esteban, has reacted disappointed to the decision of the Table in the microphones of Radio Euskadi. A week after registering the bill, which allowed the private acts of the Head of State to be left out of inviolability so that alleged illicit acts can be investigated both judicially and parliamentarily, Esteban sees how his initiative does not pass even the first procedure. «The key is the PSOE. By refusing to process it, you are doing yourself a disservice », he added.
