Sanchez exposes himself to someone outside Congress under the law of the land

Today, the government faces another complex session in Congress, from which it may emerge with another parliamentary defeat. And after his partners last Tuesday – including Somare, who broke the coalition bloc for the first time in the vote – overthrew the Socialist Workers’ Party’s anti-pandering motion, the land law now faces the same risks. It is in the hands of the People’s Party, which has given up submitting an amendment to it entirely, but may join the ECP, Gontz and Podemos to drop the Housing Ministry rule.

The Conservatives have not revealed the meaning of their vote and senior sources say it is “not 100 per cent decided” and that they will make a decision during today’s debate. They stress that the government “goes to the limit on every vote” and that they can work for their partners to withdraw the amendment in its entirety. Secretary Isabel Rodriguez defends the law early in Congress.

It is true that Alberto Núñez Viejo actually warned Pedro Sánchez during the socialist’s inauguration debate that electing his “impossible government” would have consequences: “When his partners let him down, don’t look for me.” This is a phrase that still resonates in Genoa, and is part of the opposition’s strategy.

But the land law is special because it is not based solely on the rule of the last chief executive, Mariano Rajoy, but is a claim of the employer, the autonomous councils and communities, which are now mostly governed by the people. This means that the Popular Party is not exempt from pressure from various fronts.

European elections

However, they in the conservative national leadership do not hide that this defeat would mean a very big political blow for Sánchez, coinciding with the beginning of the European campaign: the elections that the People’s Party proposes as a general referendum on the head of government.

The amendment to the Land and Urban Rehabilitation Law, which was approved by the Council of Ministers last March, aims to provide more legal certainty for urban planning of cities, and prevent the failure of general plans due to minor defects in form and their declaration of invalidity.

The main modification is the creation of a new character, partial invalidation. This applies to the general plan when minor errors occur that do not affect the fundamental aspects. If this legislative change is finally approved, a one-year deadline (extendable for a further six months) will be given to city councils to resolve these problems. With the previous regulations, a simple error or failure to include a document means that the entire plan is invalidated in the courts, even if it is secondary within the entire urban project.
