Petition to Armengol so that the ERC and Junts deputies refrain from voting on the amnesty law

The president of the Congress, Francina Armengol, has a request on the table today to warn the deputies of the ERC and Junts per Catalunya (JxCat) of the “legal obligation that they must abstain” from the vote on the amnesty law proposal for his “direct interest” in the matter. Clean Hands plans to register a letter today in the Lower House addressed to the president of the Congress in which it is considered “irrefutable” that during the vote there is a “direct conflict of interest” on the part of the representatives of the two formations, which he considers “direct beneficiaries when the Amnesty Law is approved.”

The group of officials maintains that this fact legally obliges them to abstain because, otherwise, they will incur not only disciplinary responsibility, but also alleged administrative prevarication, so the vote “can be null.”

And he defended that a “numerous jurisprudence” established that a public official is considered “anyone who by immediate provision of law, by election or by appointment of a competent authority” has – participate in the execution of public duties “and if there is a clear public interest.”».

In support of this decision, the group led by Miguel Bernad invoked article 103 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the Public Administration objectively serves the general interest and operates according to the principles of effectiveness, hierarchy, decentralization and coordination with full subordination. the law and the right. Similarly, it uses article 23 of the Administrative Procedure Law, which establishes as reasons for abstention “having a direct personal interest in the matter” or “service relationship with a natural or legal person who intervenes in the procedure.” Finally, it refers to article 79 of the Chamber’s Regulations, which states that “no deputy may participate in voting on resolutions that affect his status as a deputy.”

“For one’s own good”

For Manos Cleans it is “indisputable” that the amnesty law “directly benefits the prominent members and leaders of the ERC and Junts formations”, represented “by Oriol Junqueras and Jordi Turull in agreements or agreements in support of law.””.

And he stressed that the regulations “are the cause and consequence of the agreement” between the Secretary of the Organization of the PSOE, Santos Cerdán, and the leader of the ERC, and the agreement between Minister Félix Bolaños and Jordi Turull.

The grace measure, he assures, “does not benefit all Spaniards” but is prepared “ad hoc to benefit the two political groups whose representatives are representatives of Congress.” “It’s called, plain and simple, direct interest for one’s own good,” he emphasized.

With these arguments, he maintained in that letter that “there is an obligation” on the part of the president of the Congress to “warn” the deputies of the two formations of the “obligation” that they should avoid.

Manos Limpias defended that the deputies who should abstain are the ERC parliamentarians Francesc Marc Álvaro, Montserrat Bassa, Inés Granollers, Teresa Jordà, Gabriel Rufián, Jordi Salvador and Pilar Valluguera, and those of Junts Pilar Calvo, Josep Maria Cervera, Josep Maria Cruset, Isidre Gavín, Marta Madrenas, Miriam Mogueras and Eduard Pujol. To all of them, he assured, he will send by email the letter urging them to abstain, a document that he asked Armengol to transfer “to all the parliamentary groups represented in the House”.
