The electoral union of Junts per Catalunya has urged people who hold internal positions, collegiate bodies, including single-member bodies, and representatives in institutions to refrain from using their positions to favor any of the options and to remain neutral with respect to the consultation on the continuity of training in the Government that will be held tomorrow, Thursday and Friday.
The party's electoral syndicate has sent a statement to the militancy in which it shows its concern about the principle of neutrality before the consultation and makes this decision "according to the non-existence of a mechanism that regulates the debate prior to the vote."
Although there are already many positions, both internal and institutional, that have spoken out and continue to do so explicitly or implicitly in favor of continuing in the Government or against it, the party's general secretary, Jordi Turull, has not done so after assuring the Monday that he had no intention of putting himself in profile and that he would communicate to the militancy the meaning of his vote.
This communication from the electoral syndicate could force Turull to maintain his silence once the president of the party, Laura Borràs, has considered that the "Govern is not a coalition but a collision" and has branded it "fraudulent and illegitimate".
When Turull was asked if he would defend a position different from that of Borràs, he implied that he would not, that they always go to one o'clock and in the environment of the suspended president of the Parliament they understood that they would say the same thing. He also assured that his "obsession" is that there is no internal rupture in Junts, a risk that other leaders admit.
The syndicate's statement, addressed to the organic and institutional positions of the party, comes after many prominent leaders have already spoken in public about what they think in these last few hours, not only in assemblies with members, as was done in the past, also in articles in the press, in interviews or on social networks. All this is showing the division of opinions that until now was an open secret and that there is a fracture in this matter.
Whatever happens, the party leaders will have a difficult task ahead of them after the referendum, reassemble the space eight months before the municipal elections, unite it and sew it together. The formation had set itself the goal of being the most voted force in the May 2023 elections and obtaining the maximum number of mayors to have a strong capillary network throughout the territory and establish the brand.
