• Crespo: "The Andalusians want us to be up to the task with public support for the National Police and the Civil Guard so that they know they are not alone"

• Asks the PSOE-A "to force its federal committee so that there are no contradictions in the defense of constitutional legality"

The spokesperson for the Popular Party in the Andalusian Parliament, Carmen Crespo, announced today that the PPA will request, through a non-law proposal, the support of the Andalusian Parliament for the State Security Forces and Corps because "the lukewarmness in the defense of the rule of law is a breath of fresh air for the independentistas”.

Crespo assured that "the Andalusians want their representatives to live up to the exceptional situation that Spain is experiencing and to stand by the rule of law and the Spanish Constitution." He added that the institutions "must make visible and public" the support for the defense of legality that the National Police and the Civil Guard are doing.

He pointed out that the State Security Forces and Corps "are suffering persecution and attacks and are victims of the public appeal of the President of the Generalitat for them to leave Catalonia."

He considered necessary a "visible adhesion of the Parliament, of the city councils and of the deputations to those who are trying to guarantee democracy and peaceful coexistence so that they know that they are not alone". Crespo stated that "ideally, there would be unanimity, but it is not possible because there are political forces that have sided with the independence movement."

He added that "we are not surprised by those who declare themselves anti-system but Parliament must be on the side of the majority of Andalusians, who do not want a lukewarm or contradictory discourse." In this sense, the popular spokeswoman assured that "this is not the time to condemn Democrats but to defend constitutional unity", for which she asked the PSOE-A "to exert force in its federal committee so that there are no contradictions and it gets involved in the unity of message and in the defense of constitutional legality”.
