Aragonés stages his fissure with JxCAT after saving accounts with the commons

The President of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, has left the Chamber of Parliament visibly angry during the speech of the JxCat deputy Joan Canadell, which had attacked ERC on Monday for its pact with the commons to save the processing of the Catalan budgets. Canadell, one of the most controversial profiles of the JxCat group, identified with the most unilateralist sector and critical of the left, has charged against ERC’s “broad route” embodied in an agreement with the commons that he considers “a prelude to a tripartite” and has warned that they will not find Junts “in a 180 degree turn towards autonomism”.

Aragonès has not hidden his irritation and, after exchanging a few words with the vice president of the Government, Jordi Puigneró, sitting next to him, he left the chamber to go to his office in the Parliament. Once Canadell’s intervention was over, Aragonès has returned to his seat to follow the speech of the ERC deputy Lluís Salvadó.

Thus, and despite the tension experienced, the Parliament has given the green light this Monday to the processing of the Generalitat’s budgets for 2022, with the votes in favor of ERC and JxCat and the abstention of En Comú Podem, which has allowed to overturn the amendments to the totality presented by the rest of the opposition groups. The 65 votes of ERC and JxCat, next to the eight abstentions of the commons, have been enough to reject the amendments to the totality to the budgets presented by the PSC, Vox, the CUP, Ciudadanos and the PPC, which have added a total of 62 votes.

At the end of the vote, the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, rose from his seat to greet, satisfied, the Minister of Economy, Jaume Giró, and the leader of En Comú Podem in Parliament, Jéssica Albiach. The vote took place after a parliamentary debate lasting more than five hours, starring Minister Jaume Giró with the parliamentary spokesmen, hours after the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, will announce his agreement with the commons to save the accounts in exchange for ERC facilitating in turn the approval of the budgets of the municipal government of Ada Colau.

Once the amendments to the entire budget of the Parliament had been rejected, the president of the Catalan chamber, Laura Borràs, suspended the session to take a ten-minute recess, before resuming the plenary session to debate and vote on the so-called accompanying law, which will go ahead presumably also with the support of ERC and JxCat and the abstention of the commons. Once this first parliamentary obstacle has been overcome, the budgets now begin their processing, first in committee, before being returned to the plenary session for final approval. scheduled for December 23, if everything goes according to the plans of the Government.
