Vox closed the open crisis in the Balearic parliamentary group this Thursday after five rebel deputies expelled the leader of the party, Patricia de las Heras, and the president of the Parliament, Gabriel Le Senne, after reaching an agreement with the dissidents.
In a statement, the party explained that Gabriel Le Senne will continue as president of the Balearic Parliament and that the parliamentary group, controlled by five rebels, will once again include Le Senne and Patricia de las Heras and remain “it doesn’t matter.”
“With a desire for understanding and above all to ensure the stability of a government committed to Vox to work for language freedom in the islands, all the affected parties have resolved the different misunderstandings and distorted information and agreed to continue working together to fulfill not only the commitment made by Vox voters but also the many measures that have not yet been developed that will improve the lives of all citizens in the Balearic Islands,” they said.
Therefore, the national leadership of Vox closed the open crisis in the Balearic Islands and assured that it would continue to focus on the work of representation and fulfill its commitments to the millions of Spaniards who trust Vox. He indicated that he would continue with “the same concern that, once the problem is resolved, now occupies the representatives of Vox in the Balearic Islands,” they said.
Those from Vox insisted on making their support for budgets subject to the approval of their initiative, which ultimately divided the parliamentary group. The disagreement affected Xisco Cardona, who left his organic positions in Vox and joined the non-attached group in Parliament. He assured after his departure that the party’s instructions were “accurate” regarding the progressive imposition of the free choice of language in schools and the approval of the spending ceiling and said that he was not aware of the change in the criteria. Therefore, of the eight representatives of Vox in the Balearic Parliament elected in the regional elections of 28M, seven remain. Five of them, the dissidents led by Ribas, decided to expel the leader of Vox in the Balearic Islands and the president of the Cortes at the end of January, citing “internal circumstances of the group.” Immediately, the national leadership of Vox transferred its support to the two deposed deputies, De las Heras and Le Senne, and temporarily expelled the mutineers.
All the while, the five rebels and the exiles worked hard to guarantee their support for the government of Marga Prohens. Today, according to the national leadership, the seven representatives of Vox in the Balearic Islands share the “concern” to focus on the representation and fulfillment of the commitments made by voters and partners.
