The Government does not plan to alter its calendar and is confident of being able to present the General State Budget project for 2024 next March, despite the setback caused by Junts’ decision not to support the Amnesty Law this Tuesday in Congress , which forces us to continue negotiating this rule with those of Carles Puigdemont. Government sources admit that, after what happened in the Plenary, we must wait to see “how the members of the Junts breathe.” Now the proposed Amnesty Law will return to the Justice Commission of the Chamber, which has a maximum period of one month to issue a new opinion and submit it to the Plenary Session. The Ministry of Finance’s intention is to present the budget project in March, but first it wants to have guarantees that its parliamentary partners will not register or support any amendment to the entire budget, so that they can, at least, start its processing in Congress. THE NEGOTIATIONS COULD OVERLAP Thus, if the calendar is not altered, everything indicates that the negotiation on the amnesty law and the search for those guarantees so as not to hinder the Budgets could overlap. The parliamentary processing of new accounts usually lasts around two and a half months and the Treasury’s idea is that, after passing through Congress, the project is sent to the Senate in May and published in the Official State Gazette ( BOE) in June for its entry into force. It is the limit, since going further would overlap with the next deficit path and the presentation of the 2025 Budgets. In any case, the Government maintains that Junts’ ‘no’ to the Amnesty Law has no reason anticipate the end of the legislature and emphasize that the call for elections corresponds to the President of the Government, who is determined to move forward. When asked if the legislature is at risk, the Minister of the Presidency and Justice, Félix Bolaños, emphasized that the coalition government has “three and a half years” left to run.
