Spain: Catalan parliament to decide next move on Thursday

Spain, Barcelona
October 23, 2017 at 14:43 GMT -00:00 · Published

The Catalan parliament will meet on Thursday to decide the next move in its battle for independence, it said on Monday.

The plenary session will be held one day before the Spanish senate is expected to vote to remove leader Carles Puigdemont and strip his administration of its powers.

The announcement sparked polarized reactions.

Joan Coscubiela, spokesperson of 'Catalonia Yes We Can' said: "For us, the upcoming plenary session is an opportunity to build an as much as possible unitary answer to the barbaric article 155 of Mr. Rajoy."

Meanwhile, Xavier Garcia Albiol, member of Parliament of Catalonia for the Popular Party said: "The implementation, if the Senate finally approves it like this, of article 155 does not mean suspending the self-government of Catalonia. It means, as I said before, to guarantee its survival and to avoid what is happening now, which is the denting of this rule of law, of this self-government, on behalf of the Generalitat’s own government."

El Parlamento catalán se reunirá el jueves para decidir el próximo paso en su estrategia hacia la independencia, como anunciaron el lunes.

La sesión plenaria se llevará a cabo un día antes de que el Senado español vote, muy probablemente, para cesar al presidente de Cataluña Carles Puigdemont y despojar a su administración de sus poderes.

El anuncio provocó reacciones de diversa índole.

Joan Coscubiela, portavoz de `Catalunya si que es pot´, dijo que "para nosotros, la próxima sesión plenaria es una oportunidad para construir, en la medida de lo posible, una respuesta unitaria al bárbaro Artículo 155 del Sr. Rajoy”

Por otra parte, Xavier García Albiol, diputado del Partido Popular (PP) en el Parlamento catalán, dijo que "la actuación, si el Senado finalmente lo aprueba así, del Artículo 155, no significa suspender el autogobierno de Cataluña. Significa, como he dicho antes, garantizar su supervivencia y evitar lo que en estos momentos está ocurriendo que es la voladura de este estado de derecho, de este autogobierno, en nombre del propio gobierno de la Generalitat”.
