The partner of the Executive United We may not have attended said meeting, but the second vice president, Yolanda Diazhas urged to “correct now” the “deviation” that the “anti-democratic” blockade assumes in the renewal of the CGPJ, which has taken almost four years.

The Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarushas demanded that the PP end its “soft blow to democracy” and demand that the CGPJ be renewed “without concessions or conditions” to the people.
