The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has asked the PP on Monday to “put aside” its “political denial” and put the general interest before the individual by supporting in Congress the validation of the labor reform decree.

“Political denialism also exists. We have a right that is opposed to any conquest or social advance even if it is endorsed by the social agents,” has denounced the Chief Executive, who has criticized that the PP has already announced its vote against “without having read “the labor reform.

Asked if the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, has contacted the general secretary of the PP, Teodoro García Egea, so that the ‘popular’ abstain in the debate to validate the reform in Congress, Sánchez has It has been pointed out that this has not been the case, as the minister himself has informed him, but in any case he has considered that this call from Bolaños to Egea would be “pertinent.”

In an interview with the SER chain, collected by Europa Press, the president has indicated that these contacts must exist and has stated that, “honestly”, the Cortes Generales should endorse and validate the labor reform agreed between the Government and the social agents because it is “good” for companies and workers.

“In any country, an agreement like this would be validated by common sense,” said Sánchez, who stated that the rest of the formations “can make it more or less easy” depending on what the main opposition party does. .

In this sense, Sánchez has defended that the labor reform agreement incorporates measures that were about to be agreed by the Parliamentary Groups or on which a prior agreement already existed, such as what has to do with subcontractors.

“The right and the extreme right are raising criticism not so much about the measures but about who supports them,” the president denounced, adding that what they should really do is not focus so much on the “with whom”, but rather on the “for what”.

In any case, Sánchez believes that a majority of political groups will validate the labor reform in Congress.

The chief executive has assured that in his term in office, despite all the difficulties and the lack of a parliamentary majority, the Government “has done nothing but work for the dignity of the people.”

“When I go to Congress I know perfectly what I am going to find, but I am not going to let myself be dragged into the mud despite all the disqualifications I hear,” said Sánchez, who hopes that in the remainder of the legislature “the right will take the example “to the social agents, with whom the Government has so far signed 14 agreements.

Sánchez has recognized that the agreed labor reform is not the one that the Government would have done, nor the one that the employers or the unions would have done. “But it is the best agreement to represent us all,” he insisted.
