The leader of the PSC, Miquel Iceta, has asked the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, to comply with the order of the Central Electoral Board (JEC) and remove the yellow ties from public buildings, instead of transferring the decision to the Síndic de Greuges , since "it does not belong".
"The laws are to be fulfilled, and when the JEC issues a resolution it must be complied with and the rest is distraction," he assured in an interview on the Ser network.
After expiration of the ultimatum that the Electoral Board had given Torra to order to remove the yellow ties and 'estelades' of public buildings of the Generalitat, the Government Delegation in Catalonia yesterday sent a letter to the electoral body informing that a dozen buildings of the Catalan Government, including the Palau de la Generalitat, continued to exhibit these symbols.
At the request of the interviewer, Iceta has interpreted Torra's position: "As there are campaigns and elections, I think he should think that he must respond to the demands of the most radical sectors, and everyone calculates, and should think that the consequences in this particular case are small. "
In case the Catalan president persists in his refusal to withdraw 'stelades' and yellow ties, the leader of the PSC has considered that the government "must abide by what the JEC says" and, as the delegate in Catalonia did yesterday, Teresa Cunillera, report the situation if the agency requires it.
"The idea that institutions are neutral is clear, democratically impeccable, and more in the electoral period, maybe they want to make this a mountain, but it is not, it's a girlie," he has resolved.
