Unfortunately, Spain is increasingly polarized, which makes it impossible to reach the necessary State agreements that allow society to lay the foundations for the coexistence of several generations. In recent weeks we have witnessed an example of this tension in which there are those who discuss the legitimacy of the results of the last general elections.
In Spain we live in a representative democracy. The people directly elect the legislative branch and the configuration of majorities in it elects the President of the Government, who in turn appoints the Executive branch. That democratic purity is what we are experiencing with the investiture of Pedro Sánchez. Only the judiciary in our country remains with its mandate expired.
Precisely this tense political criticism has been transferred to that power of the State in an anomalous situation—the General Council of the Judiciary—which, for the sake of the division of powers itself, should not have made a political statement on legislative projects that have not yet transcended the scope. judicial. The adaptation to the legal system of new grace measures (which in the past have been effective in terms of coexistence and economic recovery), must be transferred, in any case, to the Constitutional Court. Social and political coexistence, and the end of the clash between institutions, must be the great objective.
All this noise should not hide the main challenges that affect our society, citizens and companies. The previous legislature achieved progress in social rights rarely experienced in our history.
The challenge for the beginning legislature is enormous. The investiture pact expresses commitments such as the firm commitment to social dialogue. This instance seems fundamental to us given the complexity of the challenges we face as a result of the epochal transformations we are experiencing. There is no one like organizations of workers and companies to cooperate in the face of changes, to consolidate rights and improve the economy. For this reason, we believe that it is necessary to develop article 129 of the Constitution, opening the door to democracy in companies with more participation of their workers.
