The PSOE marks as a red line to support the trans law that minors under 16 years of age receive judicial authorization

The socialists maintain that they do not give for “closed no negotiation process” regarding the law of Ministry of Equality although they insist that it is necessary to provide it with more “legal security» on the subject of minors.
"It is an essential, fundamental issue to have that legal certainty", has remarked the number two of the PSOE, Maria Jesus Montero who claims the legitimacy of his party to present amendments as with any other legislative project. It puts the focus on the fact that minors form a collective “very sensible" who must be protected and specified that in the amendments to the PSOE "their right to registration in the registry is not denied” of young people between the ages of 14 and 16.
The law drafted by Equality It is very similar to one presented by the Socialists themselves a few years ago. Besides, the Andalusian trans law who led the PSOE at the time it contemplated many of the situations that socialists now reject in state law.
