The Constitution is in force and has brought the best years in the history of Spain but around it there is “not a lock” so that their reform is always possible that “this is done with the same support,” that he had when drafted in 1978. This has been the message of the president of Congress, Ana Pastor, has delivered an elaborate speech on this 40th anniversary of the basic Law in which it has asked “the renewal of the great covenant constitution.”

The president of Congress, as the third authority of the State, he shared with the king Felipe VI the role of this memorial in the predominant normal. "The Constitution can be reformed, but outside of it there is no nothing". These words of the president of the Congress has been taken by different fathers of the Constitution, although it has been served of the same and make them his own. So has paraphrased to all speakers the constitutional and past presidents of the Government and the Congress. Felipe González has remembered his stage of spokesman of the socialist group in 1978 when to take a position on the draft constitution recognized that all was not assumable by the PSOE, but he did his own “from the article 1 until the end”.
That spirit is the one who has claimed this Thursday Pastor: “this Is the moment that all the spaniards to renew the great covenant constitutional because that is what the Spanish people demand it of their representatives.” The first thing for it is to such a renewal and from there, with that conviction, can be addressed if necessary the reform of the Fundamental Law. It is not an appeal inexorable to his reform, but nor is it ruled out if it has the support of almost all of the representatives of the Courts, as happened in 1978. "No Constitution should be reformed with less agreement that created it,” he warned. In his speech he recalled that the basic Law was approved in a referendum by which the same is to be equipped with “unquestionable legitimacy”.
The process of elaboration, approval and development was marked by a great deal of support, but there were “enormous challenges and attempts to derail the process,” said the president. Many pushed for that was not a failed attempt, as it has relied on the president to refer not only to political leaders, but to many sectors of society, such as trade unions, business organisations, NGOS and social groups.
“do not fit anything”
From past to present was hatching the speech of the president of the Congress with appointments very chosen that can be interpreted indirect allusions to the current problems. The previous head of State, Juan Carlos I, has been very glossed over by the president of the Congress, as well as his successor, Felipe VI. Of all the protagonists of the Transition has highlighted the “ability of renunciation and transaction,” to make this Fundamental Law, in force in Spain from 40 years ago. “Outside of the Constitution is not worth anything”, has sentenced the president.
