Catalan government wants “transparent and democratic” parliamentary session to vote on conclusions of Constituent Process

The Catalan government takes it as given that there will be no impediment in the next parliamentary plenary session to voting on the conclusions of the Study Commission of the Constituent Process, which begins this afternoon until Thursday. The presidency minister and government spokeswoman, Neus Munté, argued that “the conclusions of this commission should be discussed in the plenary session, because it is about work done in commission in which all parties were able to take part if they so wished, and therefore it must be debated and voted on with total transparency.”

The minister said that the Catalan Parliament is the place where “everyone should be able to express their fully legitimate opinions, because this is the essence of parliamentarianism.” As for the type of vote, she is in favour of a “totally transparent” vote, considering that there is nothing to hide, because “it supports a fully democratic roadmap.”

Munté also criticised the TC for issuing a resolution “with unheard of speed”, not seen in “other more important issues.” And she insisted that the conclusions of the Study Commission of the Constituent Process are “completely inline with the roadmap that this government is complying with and implementing,” but nevertheless she added, “we will respect whatever decision that the Parliament of Catalonia finally adopts, because as a government we understand that everything has to be open to debate and discussion in a democratic parliament.”

The latest parliamentary plenary session starts this afternoon, and everything suggests that tomorrow morning, JxSí and CUP will call for a vote on the conclusions of the Study Commission of the Constituent Process to be included in the order of the day, even though the Constitutional Court has issued a resolution prohibiting it on the grounds that it is directly related with the sovereignty declaration of 9-N in 2015, which was suspended by the court.
