The President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez has defended this Tuesday the Casa del Rey and his decision to move away from the figure of Juan Carlos I. Institutions are not being tried here, people are being tried and the King Emeritus has made it clear that it is at the disposal of the Justice.
Insisted that Felipe VI is taking measures of transparency and exemplary that all Spaniards must value. To make the Government’s position clear, Sánchez has repeated on several occasions that his party defends the validity of “the constitutional pact.” “I have always defended that for there to be a strong democracy, its institutions must be vigorous and the King’s decisions go in that direction”
Everything related to the departure of the King Emeritus from Spain, announced by him through a statement, has been done by the King’s House. And everything receives applause from the Prime Minister.
In his appearance at La Moncloa after three o’clock in the afternoon, Sánchez did not want to acknowledge, nor therefore reported, his intervention and that of the first vice president, Carmen Calvo in preparation for the departure of Juan Carlos I from the country.
The President has frustrated expectations of information about the whereabouts of the King Emeritus. “I don’t know,” he replied the first time.
After the wave of questions in the same direction, including one about whether he did not care where the King’s father might be, he has wielded his duty of confidentiality of the content of the meetings he maintains with Felipe VI.
It was not his mission to give details on the departure of the king emeritus, but to make a declaration of principles in defense of the constitutional monarchy.
