Together they rule out removing the presidency of the Parliament from Borràs and open a crisis with ERC



The general secretary of JxCat, Jordi Turull, has ruled out this Monday presenting a substitute for Laura Borràs in the presidency of the Parliament, as ERC, PSC, En Comú Podem and the PP. The party has made public this Monday the result of its audit of the Govern pact with ERC, which concludes that “it moves away” independence more than it brings it closer, as explained by the general secretary of the formation that has given room until last the general policy debate to “reverse” the situation.

“The mess that has been generated in the Parliament has not been generated by us”Turull stated at a press conference from the party’s headquarters in Girona, after the meeting of the Executive in which the content of the audit of the Government carried out by Junts was announced.

Borràs was suspended as deputy and president of the Chamber on July 28with the votes of the ERC, PSC and the CUP, for his involvement in a case of alleged corruption due to the splitting of contracts when he directed the Institution of Catalan Letters (ILC).

Today, both ERC and PSC and the commons have pressured JxCat to propose a replacement for Borràs to put an end to the “interim” situation in the chamber, a request to which the PP has joined. In the press conference, Turull made it clear that for JxCat the president of the Parlament is Borràs: “We do not anticipate entering into any dynamic, in other scenarios that we have not generated”.

Internal audit

JxCat has held a long meeting of its Executive in Pals (Girona) in which it has announced the results of the internal audit, whose results are “positive” in the sectoral field, unlike those of the national axis. “We can’t go on like this”Turull warned ERC in a press conference from Junts headquarters in Girona, in which he appeared together with the president of the party, Laura Borràs.

Once the debate on general policy has passed in Parliament, which will be held on September 27 and 30, JxCat will meet its Executive again to decide what the next steps will beamong which is the continuity or not in the Govern, which will be debated with the militancy of the party.

The political paper of JxCat, approved at the formation congress last July, contemplates a consultation with the bases to decide or not the continuity in the Governmentwhich will be subject to the audit that has been made public today.

Although Junts has concluded that the agreement of Government with ERC “moves away” independence, the pro-independence formation will not make any decision immediately about its continuity in the executivebut will decide after the general policy debate, in which they will present proposals to “complete” independence and that they hope to agree with ERC and the CUP.

At the press conference, Borràs confirmed the “breaches” of the ERC in terms of independence that appear in the Government agreement, and defended “reversing” them. “We do not propose a new government agreement, but rather that it be fulfilled. We have verified that in an issue that for Junts is nuclear -independence- it is not being fulfilled”Turull pointed out.

Specifically, the general secretary of Junts has mentioned the lack of progress in the constitution of a collegiate leadership of the independence movement, in the “strategic unity” and in the position in the Congress of Deputies. The debate in the executive has been “rich” and “intense”, according to Turull, who has clarified that the decision has been taken “unanimously”.
