“The conditions are not set by those who ask you for help”

The former president of the Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, has been forceful regarding the conversations with the socialists for an eventual investiture of Pedro Sánchez as president of the Government. Puigdemont, who is leading the negotiation for Junts, said on X, the network formerly known as Twitter: “Let’s see if we understand each other: the conditions are not set by whoever asks you for help. This goes backwards“.

The statements come at a time when numerous voices, both from the PSOE and Sumar, They ask that the independentists renounce the unilateral route if they want avenues to be explored towards amnesty for those accused of organizing and financing the referendum of October 1, 2017.

Puigdemont wanted to be clear. “I think someone is confused. We are not the ones who need support to go to the investiture“, he said, in an attempt to put the ball in the socialists’ court.

To explain his position, he has used an analogy in which Junts would be a bank and the PSOE a client asking for a loan: “You have every right to discuss the conditions and negotiate them, the only thing missing is. Like when you go to the bank to ask a loan: you can negotiate if there is a waiting period and the interest rate they propose, for example. But you can’t put conditions on it and ask it to waive interest charges.“.

And it concluded with a warning that is linked to the words that the Junts spokesperson, Miriam Nogueras, spoke this Saturday, in the sense that the left could be in for a “surprise” if it tries to delay the negotiations on the amnesty or the Catalan language in Congress. : “Come on, if you want the credit, of course.”.
