this Thursday he debates if he leaves the Govern after the dismissal of Puigneró

The Ministers of Junts have put their position at the disposal of the party, who in the executive this morning is debating whether to leave the Government. This has been explained by the general secretary of JxCat, Jordi Turull, in an interview with Rac 1, after the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, has dismissed the vice president, Jordi Puigneró.

The possible scenarios from now on for Junts are to leave the Catalan executive en bloc and go to the opposition or propose a new name to replace Puigneró in the position he has left vacant. Turull has stated that the final decision on whether or not to leave the Catalan executive will be made by the militancy.

“With yesterday’s decision we feel quite expelled from the Government”, has added. He has also said that he finds it increasingly difficult to redirect the situation with ERC.

As explained by Turull, the vice president knew that there was a possibility that Junts raised a question of trust in the general policy debate, but that he did not know whether the decision had been made to say so.

After the dismissal of Puigneró, there are still six councilors chosen by JxCat: Jaume Giró (Economy and Finance), Victòria Alsina (Foreign Action and Open Government), Gemma Geis (Research and Universities), Josep Maria Argimon (Health), Violant Cervera (Social Rights) and Lourdes Ciuró (Justice).

JxCat has met this Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. with its executive “to approach the political scenario and make the corresponding decisions, always thinking about the progress and well-being of the Catalans, and achieving independence as a goal”.

According to the statement, the general secretary of JxCat, Jordi Turull, transferred to Aragonès that Puigneró’s dismissal is “a historical error”, in the meeting that they held this Wednesday afternoon in the Generalitat and that lasted more than three hours.
