The leader of Cs asks President Pedro Sánchez to "immediately cancel the meeting with Torra" and attend "to what the courts say"

“That Torra no longer insist and stop entrenching himself in a position that does not belong to him; He is no longer president or deputy. ” This has been said by the leader of Citizens (Cs) in Catalonia and senator, Lorena Roldán, after the Parliament has suspended Quim Torra as a deputy and, consequently, no longer meets the requirements to be president of the Generalitat. Roldán explained that this situation "has already been made clear by the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia, the Supreme Court, the Electoral Board and today the General Secretary of the Parliament has told him" and has remarked that "there is no place for more excuses. "

The orange leader has asked Torra "to go home or be for dignity" and has warned that "if it does not and the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, look the other way, we will take the situation to justice" . "We will demonstrate dignity and respect for judicial and administrative decisions," Roldán said and said that this situation "implies the end to the nightmare of‘ procés ’." "When the status of deputy is lost, the requirements to be president are no longer met, the Statute says so clearly," he added.

Roldan has asked the president of the government, Pedro Sanchez, to "immediately cancel the meeting with Torra" planned for the next few days and instead attend "what the courts say." "We do not know what he has to talk to him," he said and continued saying that "Torra can neither occupy a seat nor attend the plenary session or sign decrees as president." "Torra committed a very serious crime of disobedience against the public administration and that is why the act has been withdrawn," Roldán said.
