Illa defends amnesty as the “necessary path” to “turn the page” and avoid a PP and Vox government

The leader of the PSC calls on the parties to be up to the task and says that “the “level of legal solvency” of the law “cannot be put at risk”.

The first secretary of the PSC, Salvador Illa, has called for everyone to be “up to the task” in terms of the amnesty law and has defended that for the socialists it is the “necessary path” to avoid a PP and Vox government, as well as allowing them to “continue turning the page” in Catalonia. “I am convinced that this is the path we have to follow. What is the other path, the permanent 155?”, Illa said in an interview on the RTVE programme Cafè d’idees, in which he argued that in Catalonia “there is a majority desire to turn the page, of citizens who see the amnesty as a coherent step”.

The leader of the opposition in the Catalan Parliament has insisted that the Socialists want to “turn the page” and “move forward with an amnesty law that includes everyone”. Asked whether the president of the central government, Pedro Sánchez, would be willing to pardon people who remain outside the law, Illa refused to “anticipate anything”. On the other hand, the PSC leader has pointed out that “we cannot put at risk” the “level of legal solvency that the amnesty has now”, which is why he has asked all parties to be up to the task, not just Junts.

“Junts is necessary, but not the only one necessary. This will go ahead with the votes of the socialists, Sumar, ERC, BNG, Junts, Bildu, PNV… It is true that Junts is the one who has doubts and with whom we are in talks, but it is all these political groups that have to support it,” Illa said. With regard to the electoral results of the Socialists in Galicia, the PSC First Secretary considered that the amnesty did not affect the vote in the elections, but acknowledged that there are voters who do not understand it.
