Socialist Party has no authority to rule on conscientious objection, family group says

.- The Forum on the Family of Valencia said last week the ruling Socialist Party has no authority to rule on the legality of conscientious objection to the course Education for Citizenship, because it is a fundamental right in the Constitution and “according to the Constitutional Court, it does not have to be expressly regulated by law.”
“It’s not up to the Socialist Party to rule on the legality of conscientious objection to Education for Citizenship.  This is a task in the hands of the Supreme Court. But it must be noted that there have already been 123 court rulings all over Spain that have sided with families that object,” the forum stated.
The pro-family organization explained that according to Constitutional Court rulings, this right does not require any law to expressly regulate it, but rather its application is determined through the legal proceedings.

It also criticized Socialist lawmakers, including Representative Carlos Gonzalez, for misinforming parents and claiming that the Forum on the Family “incites families and students to exercise a false conscientious objection in order to get out of the Education for Citizenship course.”
