Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let me give you his words... (paraphrased by La vanguardia)
It's a different issue [from Navarra being at stake in the peace process] that the socialist atempt to unseat UPN from the [regional] presidency at the next [Navarran] Autonomous [Community elections].

... but this [agreement against the nationalist demands] does not mean that they [the Government] will attend to the demands of [Navarran president] Sanz: a constitutional change is not foreseen and, even less, will they give up on ruling Navarra if possible.

Sanz has demanded that the Spanish Constitution be reformed (there is a provision allowing Navarra to change its legal status via popular referendum, which Sanz is insinuating could be used to annex Navarra to the Basque country). I expect UPN to claim that Zapatero's refusal to undertake this reform is evidence of nefarious intent.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
