The proposal for the renewal of the General Judicial Council (CGPJ) was paralyzed by the government to reach an agreement with the “popular”. This was announced by Pedro Sánchez after the end of the debate on the motion of censure recorded by Vox.
“For the benefit of our Constitution and our democracy, we will stop the clock on the reform of the CGPJ while waiting for you to sit down and agree to unlock the renewal of the judges,” said the Prime Minister, referring to the People’s Party.
And it is that this surprise comes after Pablo Casado announced the vote against his party against the motion of censure and broke with the formation of the far right. Thus, the government is reaching out to the opposition to negotiate the renewal of institutions.
We will vote ‘no’ on his candidacy for the presidency of the Spanish government, ”Casado told Vox chief Santiago Abascal shortly before 11 am, after several minutes of speech.

He considers that Abascal “is not qualified”: “We did what you do not know how to do and your party has never done”, he cracked and on the motion, he said that ” Vox is the life insurance of Sánchez to continue as a tenant of the Moncloa “.
Although the PP sources consider that it is they who “won the battle”, but they remember that there are still two conditions: that Podemos quit the negotiation and the depoliticization of justice. In addition, they believe that the leader of the executive made this announcement “forced by the European Commission”.
Pedro Sánchez considers it important to have “strong and legitimate institutions”, which is why he appealed to the lower house and, more specifically, to the PP to carry out the relevant renovations. “Mr. Casado, let us renew the judiciary, the mediator, the Constitutional Court. We need understanding and dialogue”, he declared during his speech.
“When this motion of censure ends, let us sit down to renew. We will stop the clock while waiting for you to sit down and come to unblock,” is the message that was sent to the leader of the opposition.

This change of course comes after the PSOE and Unidos Podemos have registered their proposal to reform the law that regulates the renewal of the General Judicial Council, in order to modify the parliamentary majorities necessary to renew it and thus end the blockade.
Santiago Abascal was tasked with closing the debate on the motion of censure presented by his party, which ultimately failed with 52 votes for and 298 against. The leader of the far-right formation believes that Pablo Casado and Pedro Sánchez have sought to “negotiate the judiciary”, hence their latest interventions.
“What we understood with your intervention is the same as that of Casado, who had to come out to insult us and say things that we would never think of to negotiate justice with you”, he condemned.
