Zero table of the dialogue process between theStateand theGeneralitatand thrashed by the Catalan side. ThegovernmentHe began to walk yesterday, already with a firm step, a path that nobody knows where he leads, but that aspires to find a way out of the political conflictCatalua,restore affective relations with this autonomy and, incidentally, help you approve the state budgets and hold the legislature. Hardly anything.

With all these purposes, the president of the Government, Pedro Snchez, accompanied by his first vice president, Carmen Calvo, and the finance ministers, Mara Jess Montero (also spokesman for the Executive); Transport, Jos Luis Balos; Territorial Policy; Carolina Darias; Health, Salvador Illa (the PSC quota) and Universities, Manuel Castells, who together with the third vice president, Pablo Iglesias, absent due to a pain of angina, represents United We can, went out to receive the gardens ofLa Moncloato the Catalan delegation that heads thepresidentof the Generalitat, Quim Torra; your vice president,Pere Aragons; directorsJordi PuignerYAlfred Bosch, deputies Elsa Artadi andMarta Vilalta; deputyJosep Maria Jov, investigated in the 1-O case, and former chief of staff of Presidents Puigdemont and Torra,Josep Rius.

Not only did they receive them, they literally met them, in an unusual protocol act, which led the Government representatives to go in search of the leaders of the Generalitat to the gardens ofLa Moncloato access together a room of the building where theMinister counciland that hosted the meeting. An unusual treat that was completed with a preferential treatment to Quim Torra, in the cessation of the press room to offer his appearance or in the placement of the flags, two Spanish, two Catalan, flanking them. It was the prelude to an intervention where the president of the Generalitat made it clear that for the only possible response that the State can give to the political problem in Catalua is the amnesty of those convicted of the so-called procs and the exercise of the right of self-determination. His usual speech but heard in La Moncloa, on the day that the Government chose to launch the negotiation process. These are, in his opinion, the two issues that raise the consensus of the Catalan citizen.

And although the Executive assures that it is in the antipodes of this position, the table zero of the negotiation left with a joint communiqué where, as it happened in the test of a year ago inPedralbes,the term Constitution is omitted and replaced by legal security as the framework of a possible agreement, monthly meetings are established, which will alternatively be held inMadridYBarcelonaand a semi-annual appointment with the participation of the presidents and vice-presidents, who will be left out in the current meetings.

With this measure, the Government is looking for a solution for Catalua, which currently does not exist, which probably, according to the spokeswoman of the Executive, Mara Jess Montero, must be invented through imaginative formulas and that could not Light up in the short term. And although it is difficult to understand what two delegations are going to talk about during these months – one that only contemplates obtaining a referendum of independence and the amnist and another that does not accept it – the Government is shielded in that it is necessary to dialogue and that only this way meeting points A compliment of the dialogue that also has its practical anchors.

In the next few weeks, the State-Generalitat bilateral commission will be convened, where practical issues of the so-called reunion agenda, investments, economic improvements will be discussed, for which, Mara Jess Montero warned, new budgets will be needed.

Because the treatment that the Government gave yesterday to the Generalitat, ERC and JxCat today have in Congress the opportunity to thank them with the favorable vote to the deficit objectives and the ceiling of expenditure, the prelude to the State accounts. And the minister herself assured yesterday that she has confidence that she will approve. With the favorable vote of ERC andBildu,with whom yesterday the Socialist Group maintained contacts, it is enough. Although the Catalan formation has not yet revealed its position, the success of the meeting opens the door wide open to its support. Especially since ERC sources even take it for granted that they vote in favor of the budget project, even if nobody verbalizes it yet publicly.
