Congress’ Constitutional Commission has approved the draft Democratic Memory Act with 19 votes in favour PSOE, United We Can, PNV and EH Bildu and the “no” from PP, Vox and Ciudadanos. ERC has opted for abstention because, despite the progress, it continues to find the law insufficient.

The project, a deepening of the 2007 Historic Memory Act, was approved by the Council of Ministers nearly a year ago, but Spain’s government crippled the process by not getting enough support in Congress as the ERC rejected its initial rejection. brought forward.
