At their meeting in the Moncloa Palace in Madrid last Wednesday, Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and opposition leader Mariano Rajoy agreed to disagree about the economy but found common ground elsewhere. Rajoy offered the PM his party’s unconditional support in the fight against terrorism as long as there was no renewal of talks with the Basque terrorist group ETA. He also agreed that Constitutional Court and the regulatory body, the General Council for Judicial Power, CGPJ, should be renovated in September, a move that the Partido Popular has opposed for the past four years. It was the shortest meeting the two men have ever had, but by far the most positive.
