MADRID, 18 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The general secretary of the PP, Cuca Gamarra, has accused the Government and specifically the president, Pedro Sánchez, of the "rupture" of the Pact of Toledo with the latest reform of the pension system, which was approved in an extraordinary Council of Ministers on Thursday by decree.
In statements to the RNE 'Parliament' program collected by Europa Press, Gamarra pointed out the need to remove pensions from the political debate "in order to shield them" and, above all, so that they are addressed as a "State policy".
"What Pedro Sánchez has done is the rupture of the State Pacts, one of them the pensions and the Pact of Toledo", adds Gamarra, who specifically accuses the president of breaking the search for consensus to guarantee the sustainability of the system both in the present and in the future.
Thus, the general secretary stresses the importance of addressing pension issues within the framework of the Toledo Pact Commission of Congress, where the different parliamentary groups of the Lower House participate.
And he has also complained about the government not sending the text of the reform to the first opposition party. "On Thursday the royal decree was approved and the PP does not even have the text because the Government has not sent it to them," he denounced.
Finally, and like the president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, he has stressed that the approved reform as it is proposed "is a patch" and does not provide "sustainability guarantees".
