Since May 17, 2022, when 14 representatives of the opposition signed a proposal to include the number of investigative commissions, the file has suffered delay after delay, with reports that were never completed and methods passed from one place to another (former councilor Ana Elizalde, current parliamentarian, failed to delay the process).
Finally, the proposal came this Thursday at TREES, where the progressive groups promoting the initiative, with greater representation in this legislature, approved the change in regulations that would make it possible to investigate municipal matters.
They voted in favor of EH Bildu, PSN, Geroa Bai and Contigo-Zu, while UPn and PP They voted against it.
The possibility of creating a number of investigative commissions was launched after a councilor conference by Joseba Asiron, where he reseveral the head of the City Council’s legal services, a directly appointed position, did work for Navarra Suma outside of his scope of action.
The computer expertise released by EH Bildu in April of last year shows that the mentioned position used more than 30 hours from his official computer at City Hall and the working hours for the reports presented by Navarra Sum of the Commonwealth of the Region of Pamplona against the waste plant planned in Imárcoain.
Although the opposition asked for more information, the previous government group closed, launched accusations against the proposing groups, and had conflicting explanations in some cases.
In a last attempt to avoid the creation of investigative commissions, the UPN tried this Thursday to also approve a series of pending changes to the Plenary regulations, but the progressive majority did not allow it with the argument that they needed to bring their processing.
Public and open sessions
The change in regulations is indicative of new articles and includes the number of the investigation commission itself, equated to permanent and non-permanent commissions, which already exist.
The future commissions are composed of the same number of political representatives as the ordinary information commissions nominated by each group, including the president and vice president It falls on people belonging to any opposition groups to guarantee its impartiality.
The sessions will be public with access to citizens and media, and obtaining background information and documents necessary to clarify the facts will be the right of the members of these commissions.
At the end of this work, a report will be written that will be approved by the majority, and the individual votes made on the conclusions will be included.
