The PSOE and the PP have been given an additional week to present its partial amendments to the law proposal on reform of Castilla-La Mancha, according to parliamentary sources, who estimate that the deadline was extended until the 25th.

"

In this regard, the secretary of Institutional Relations and Regional Policy stated that "as long as the PP does not practice the policy of harassment that made the Statute of Catalonia, all other statutory reform processes will be developed in a normal tone."

"

Furthermore, Moreno explained that the PSOE has set itself the main goal of "harmonizing the double impulse from an autonomous state with a lot of personality and a powerful State that has to remain the basis and support of equality and cohesion of our country ' . "Harmonizing and lubricate relations between the autonomous communities and the Government is our main task," he concluded.
