- Q&A What is the parental pin: the tool for parents to veto content in classrooms
- PP.Pablo Casado, on the controversy over the parental pin: "It's a smoke screen, let's not bite the hook"
- Extraordinary Council of Ministers.The Government will resort to the introduction of the parental pin in schools
Pablo Casado has gone out today, again, to the passage of the controversy by the so-called parental pin, and has defended that it is an idea of the PP and not of Santiago Abascal: "It is nothing new from Vox, we put it 15 years ago in the Community of Madrid , and for the entire course ".
Casado has insisted, in an interview on Antena 3, that "extracurricular" activities must have "parental authorization." Although the truth is that the workshops and subjects on LGTBI diversity , gender identity and feminism that allows vetoing the Murcia parental pin are not extracurricular, but are taught during school hours.
In the opinion of the president of the PP, the "problem" is not that of the "freedom" of the parents' choice, but that "the Government has appointed Mrs. Dolores Delgado as the State Attorney General, and they have lost their hands ". And that is why the Executive has put this "smoke screen" in the public spotlight, eight months after the PP announced this authorization system for the Region of Murcia . Why? To "cover the appointment of the former Minister of Justice " and "to divide society," he emphasized.
Casado has exemplified that in the autonomies governed by the PP there is already a choice of school, and that if a workshop on bullfighting were given, for example, there are parents who could choose that their children do not attend. It happens that the bulls are legally recognized as a good of cultural interest and are incardinated under the powers of the Ministry of Culture , so denying children to listen, during school hours, what this cultural activity is called "censorship" by associations that defend bullfighting.
It should be remembered that Casado yesterday compared that parents are not allowed to veto the attendance of their children to certain talks with the fact that in Cuba children "belong to the revolution", and can betray their parents if they are not good revolutionaries . This type of statements has aroused internal criticism in the PP. There are leaders who believe that the popular should clearly differentiate themselves from Vox and not fall into the government trap, as this newspaper said yesterday.
But Casado has replied today that the controversy of the parental pin is part of a mental frame on the left by which, if the right answers to their debates, "it turns out that it twitches." "The sensible majority of Spaniards, whether from the left or from the right, want to decide on the education of their children," he emphasized.
The PP, "open to dialogue" about the CGPJ
On the other hand, the president of the PP has assured that his party is willing to sit down and negotiate with the PSOE the renewal of constitutional bodies such as the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) , but only if that renewal entails a "depoliticization". "We will reach out to the PSOE if it wants to depoliticize the State Attorney General's Office."
The new secretary of Justice of the PP, Enrique López , has assured in an interview granted to Onda Madrid that his party is "open to dialogue" on the renewal of the Judiciary always from a global state pact prism. "We are going to sit down and talk," he said, if Pedro Sánchez calls Casado. "We must talk about a model of Justice designed for citizens, and not for specific emergencies," he added.
