The parties against immersion take the pact for language to the Consell de Garanties

The parties opposed to linguistic immersion in the Catalan school have announced that they will take the new Catalan law to the Consell de Garanties Estatutàries (CGE), so that this new norm, agreed by the PSC, ERC, Junts and the commons, cannot be voted on , as planned, on Friday, the last day of the plenary session that began today.

With this movement of Citizens, PP and Vox, all procedures are paralyzed waiting for the CGE to issue an opinion. The body has seven business days to rule on the text. The president of the Vox parliamentary group, Ignacio Garriga, has affirmed that the proposed law is "an assault on legality and a violation of the rights and freedoms of citizens", while Ciudadanos and PP have also confirmed that they will take the law to the CGE.

In order for the CGE to study and issue an opinion on a regulation, at least two parliamentary groups are needed, so that with Vox and Ciudadanos it is already enough to paralyze the approval of the law while waiting for what the consultative body decides. However, the PP, in a decision of the Table that the popular consider unfair, is not counted when taking initiatives to the CGE, since it does not have the number of deputies sufficient to form a parliamentary group.

The PSC, ERC, Junts and the commons have voted in plenary in favor of processing the new law by single reading. That made it possible that, after 48 hours –that is, this very Friday-, the definitive approval of the new norm could be voted on. With the decision of Ciudadanos, PP and Vox to take the law to the Consell de Garanties Estatutàries, the processing of the norm is paralyzed, since it is now waiting for the body to rule on whether the text is in accordance with the Constitution and the Statute.
