Spanish Retired Army Members Call for Dismissal of Re-elected PM

Around 50 Spanish military officers, mostly pensioners, signed a manifesto calling on the military to interfere and dismiss newly-reelected Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and holding general elections, over the grounds that Sanchez is preparing an amnesty draft law for Catalan separatists involved in the 2017 referendum of independence and strike.

The manifesto, which coincides with demonstrations staged by Spanish opposition parties PP and Vox on Saturday in Madrid, was posted on the Spanish Military Officers Association. It implies that Sanchez secured a second term by making concessions to some notorious, secessionist organizations.

The text accuses the socialist head of the executive of undermining the system of check and balance, and annulling the independence of the judiciary.

It openly demands the army’s intervention as it is in charge of protecting Spain’s territorial integrity and sovereignty under article 8.1 of the constitution; and affirmed that citizens should be treated equally before the law.

Commenting on Sanchez’s political move, Cuca Gamarra, vice-president of Spain’s main conservative party the Partido Popular (PP) said on X (formerly Twitter) that “civic resistance is not going to give up.”
