Everything is almost closed, but there is no agreement without conducting a general fight between the factions of independence. From the Junts, they put the brakes on the announcement of an agreement with the PSOE scheduled for Thursday with the intention that in the next few hours the amnesty law can be registered in Congress and the investiture of Pedro Sánchez will be called for next week. The leadership of the Junts met this Thursday in a hotel in Brussels, but the meeting, which ended around 5 p.m., ended without endorsing the agreement with the PSOE.
However, the post-convergents want to accelerate their options to get the greatest possible return and seek to include many issues within this criteria, with the greatest possible scope to exclude all politicians and activists involved in “procés” from crimes.
It is true that Junts, who plans a press appearance this Thursday, also did not see fit to announce the agreement with the PSOE on the same day that the ERC reached an important agreement, such as the transfer of Rodalies and the development of public resources for Catalonia. The fight between the pro-independence factions has once again become an obstacle to the PSOE’s aspirations to tie the knot as soon as possible.
All after the former president of the Generalitat summoned the leadership of the Junts—the permanent leadership, a small group of his trust—in Belgium to decide on the agreement of the PSOE for the investiture in a conclave that lasted more than 6 hours.
The permanent management of the Junts consists of the president, Laura Borràs; the general secretary, Jordi Turull; vice presidents Anna Erra, Josep Rius, and Aurora Madaula; the secretary of the organization, David Torrents; and the finance secretary, Teresa Pallarès. I have attached it to the general secretary, David Saldoni, and representatives of the parliamentary chambers.
In this sense, with the intention of reaching an agreement this Thursday, the PSOE deployed its interlocutors. With one voice in Barcelona and another in Brussels, the PSOE machinery accelerated to get 14 votes from the two pro-independence parties.
Two important trips for two important moments to continue the investiture of Pedro Sánchez The number three member of the PSOE, Santos Cerdán, traveled to Brussels to close relations with Carles Puigdemont, while the Minister of the Presidency, Félix Bolaños, also made a move to Barcelona to sign Oriol Junqueras. Only one of the two trips, so far, has had a positive balance.
PSOE and ERC have already signed their investment agreement, while the Junts agreement has reached the point of complication due to the scope of the amnesty law. The fugitive former president plans to appear today at a press conference from Brussels to announce the decision after a long meeting of his party’s leadership. However, just half an hour later, this possibility disappeared.
