The PSC is studying the possibility of denouncing before the Central Electoral Board (JEC) the use of Government media to carry out an electoral campaign before the regional elections of 12-M. This was stated by the socialist spokesperson, Núria Parlon, at a press conference after being questioned about the PSC's opinion on recent announcements by the ERC candidate and president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès, such as the holding of an agreed referendum. in Catalonia.

The PPC has already denounced Aragonès' appearance this Tuesday before the Electoral Board, considering it electoralist and a partisan use of the institutions. The Popular Party already complained on Saturday to the electoral referee that the ERC candidate for the May 12 elections is engaging in "partisanship" from the Government's official accounts on social networks.

Aragonés has not spoken about this complaint but has spoken about the pre-electoral situation in which Catalonia finds itself and has acknowledged that it "alters" the path towards the referendum but has committed to "continue the negotiation process with a concrete, viable and solid proposal."
