The head of the opposition asks the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, 'not to be an accomplice to Torra's challenge' and to 'not use his position to put the Parliament at the service of separatism'
"We cannot allow Torra to complete his challenge by blocking the institutions." This is what the head of the opposition in Catalonia and president of the Citizens (Cs) group in Parliament, Carlos Carrizosa, said at a press conference in the Catalan chamber. Carrizosa has indicated that "Quim Torra has already warned that he will not call elections before being possibly disqualified" and therefore has announced that Cs "will meet with all the opposition forces to avoid the blockade that JxCAT has prepared" and to anticipate "To the possible scenarios."
The head of the opposition has also asked the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, "not to be an accomplice to Torra's challenge" and "not to use his position to put the Parliament at the service of separatism", since, if finally there is disqualification , "Torrent has the obligation to present candidates for the Generalitat within 10 days." "I believe that this parliament has already been used and degraded enough by separatism," Carrizosa lamented and pointed out that "the possibility of blockade will not exist if the legislative power fulfills its mission of taking the necessary actions to fill the vacancy at the Presidency of the Generalitat ”.
"I ask Torrent to comply with the laws, which he has not always done, because otherwise the blockade would be a fraud for the citizens," the orange leader has sentenced and remarked that "the key to unlocking is held by the president of the Parliament." Finally, Carrizosa has lamented the loss of prestige of the institutions caused by the actions that have led Torra to the Supreme Court and recalled that “it was Cs who denounced him for using the facade of the Generalitat to hang a banner with slogans typical of the separatist parties in full electoral period ”.
