Prensa A pact to deconstruct Spain

PSOE and ERC need to conceal and protect the imposture of shunning the Constitution: both seek to crack national sovereignty in order to convene a consultation. The PSEO, in the spirit of going down in history as the designer of the New Spain. ERC, as the builder of the Catalan Republic.

After Pedro Sánchez was invested as president of the coalition government between the PSOE and Unidas Podemos, the former president of the government and president of FAES, José María Aznar, has asked himself "what future can await a Nation that puts its destiny in the hands of those who want to destroy it?". "This PSOE, plus the communists, plus the secessionists, can only be a front against the Nation, against the State and against the Constitution," said Aznar.

A broad analysis of Brexit should include three interconnected dimensions: a crisis of a legal-constitutional nature, a crisis of parties and political representativeness, and a third socio-economic dimension. Thus, the British are facing a process of constitutional readjustment that aligns their institutions with a different political, economic and cultural reality; and they are doing so in an intense debate, exposed to the light and inelegant.

Prensa Transition and Constitution: A debate on History and Memory

FAES has recently brought together an eminent group of historians and intellectuals to discuss the PSOE's draft law on Historical Memory. Its details, the concept of the initiative and its repercussions and media and political purposes. Presented in the congress last March, the proposal was vetoed by the Partido Popular government, claiming that it would mean an increase in spending. However, it seems that the new socialist government could bring it back. We replicate, with an editing, the most significant parts of that conversation.

The PSOE's proposal of law to amend the so-called' “Ley de memoria histórica” is his ace up their sleeves that the Socialists are saving to respond to the intentions of Podemos in their quest to snatch the 'anti-Franco' flag from them. The journalist Pedro Corral, a PP councilor in Madrid, describes the proposal as "absolutely shattering", and argues in these FAES Papers that it is "the last burden to sweep away the constitutional system".
