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.

Prensa “An alliance of constitutional parties would be the most desirable, but it cannot be headed by the one who is doing the counter-alliance”

"We are vertiginously going to a crisis of the constitutional system with devastating consequences and the Spaniards have to know it. The crisis of the Transition system, of the constitutional system, means the disintegration of the system"

With the backdrop of an accelerating economic slowdown, the curtain has been raised for us to see the spectacle of two politicians paired by their ambition and weakness. They star in a play between entanglement and drama. What has little mystery is the outcome. It will end badly, even if not soon.

Prensa José María Aznar:“The most damaging option for Spain”

José María Aznar has assessed the announcement of the pre-agreement between PSOE and Unidas Podemos. "After elections to which we should never have been called, and if we were, it was for the exclusive personal interest of the person who did it, there were two options: a great constitutional agreement or a great radical agreement that includes communists and independentists. Everything seems that the worst possible formula has been chosen, and that will have very serious consequences from a constitutional, economic and social point of view. The most damaging option for Spain's interests".

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.

Prensa Memory and forgetfulness of reconcilitian

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".
