- Casa Real.Navarra withdraws the invitation to the Prince of Viana Awards to the King
- Pact. The socialists close their pact in Navarra with the nationalists and Podemos
Navarra President María Chivite has had to accuse Navarra spokeswoman SumaJavier Esparza of "instrumentalizing" the Crown to avoid clarifying whether she will reverse the decision of her predecessor and current partner in the Uxue Barkos Government to veto the presence of the Casa Real in the delivery of the Prince of Viana awards. "Either corrects Mrs. Barkos or does the same as her," Esparza warned him in the first face-to-face parliamentary session of a legislature in which the UPN leader intends to highlight the contradictions of the PSN after relying on the nationalists of Geroa Bai and in EH Bildu to guarantee the investiture of Chivite.
" Will the Royal House deliver the Viana prizes, or not? " Esparza has asked Chivite directly from the rostrum. The president of Navarra held an audience with the Monarch last Tuesday at the Zarzuela Palace and communicated to Felipe VI an invitation to go to Navarra to preside over an Xacobeo act in 2021 in which all the communities through which it passes will participate the road to Santiago. But Chivite was silent both in Madrid and today in the Parliament of Navarra about whether or not he will be able to amend the flat to Uxue Barkos about the presence of the King in the delivery of the Prince of Viana awards, the most important in the community Foral next to the Gold Medal of Navarra.
Barkos decided to interrupt the tradition maintained for 25 years by presidents of UPN and the PSN that it was the King or Prince who presided over the delivery of awards that are held annually in the month of May. The former president of Navarra decided to exclude the Royal House from this ceremony in 2016 and Esparza has recalled the hard positioning of socialist spokesman Santos Cerdán against Barkos decision. "The absence of the Royal House means totally discrediting the prize," repeated Esparza, citing what Cerdán said in 2016 while insisting that the decision to invite the Kings is a "political decision" that Chivite must make although he has suggested that perhaps "You must ask permission" from your nationalist partners.
But Chivite has fed Esparza's doubts by avoiding clarifying what he will finally do. "The Kings can come to Navarre whenever they want," Chivite has counterattacked, clinging to the invitation given to be present at the Xacobeo act when there are still almost two years left to celebrate.
But, in addition, the president of Navarra has reiterated that she will not change the regulations on the requirement of Basque to be an official who criticized the opposition. Chivite and the PSN supported the demonstration that took place on June 2, 2018 with what it then considered an imposition of the Basque nationalist parties. Then Chivite publicly defended that in Navarra "Basque is not only not official in the whole community but, in addition, the percentage of people who speak it does not reach one in ten." But today the president of Navarra who governs in coalition with Geroa Bai and Podemos has appealed to the wisdom to maintain the norm she criticized and postpone for a year any legislative change with the argument of achieving a greater "consensus" on the requirement of Basque in Public Function in Navarra.
