The Popular Party has once again taken the opportunity, through its general secretary, Cuca Gamarra, to offer the votes of the popular in Congress and the Senate and allow the Government to reform the law of ‘only yes is yes’ ‘ without needing the votes of Podemos.
From that part of the Government, the Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, defended again today, on Twitter, the norm and launched her accusations against “the judicial and media right” which she blamed for “redoubling the pressure.”
An “orchestrated” crackdown on the law
Identical message from the co-spokesperson for Podemos, Isa Serra, and deputy Rafa Mayoral, who have denounced “a full-fledged offensive” against the “only yes is yes” law, in their opinion orchestrated by conservative sectors that are “pressing » these days to «return to the previous model».
What has been transmitted from the coalition government is that solutions are being addressed to the problems generated by the application of the law, for which work is being done hand in hand with the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, in a “serious and rigorous”, according to sources from La Moncloa.
The same sources point out that the two parties of the coalition government, “in full harmony”, are aware of the undesirable effects generated by the application of the law, with the review of sentences for sexual offenders, and want to contribute together to solve it.
Addressing this situation responsibly, as Moncloa stresses, requires careful attention, because it is complex from a technical point of view. Social concern about this issue is not hidden and is also shared.
No agreement for a valid solution
Sources from Podemos have added that “the Government has not stopped looking for formulas so that the law is applied correctly, sharing the social concern for the decisions of those judges who are deciding to reduce sentences. We are still working on it.”
“But to this day there is no agreement on a valid solution. The PSOE is under pressure to return to the previous model and that consent ceases to be the center of the penal code,” the sources added.
