The former President of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont has offered this Monday to be the number two of the president of ERC, Oriol Junqueras, if a unitary candidacy of sovereignty materializes, as they wish from JxCat.
Speaking to Catalunya Ràdio, Puigdemont stressed that if it were possible to set up this joint independence list, "the leadership of Junqueras is indisputable." "I do not want to be a candidate for the European, the only way I can be is to go to number two of Oriol Junqueras," the expresident stressed.
Puigdemont has assured that the leader of ERC, who is in provisional prison in Lledoners, has not yet transferred this decision, but has specified that if necessary, he will do it. He has also expressed that he would like to integrate this hypothetical list Anna Gabriel, the leader of the CUP fled to Switzerland.
But In ERC, for now, the idea of merging with the political space of Puigdemont into a unitary list. The same day they proclaimed Junqueras as their candidate they defended the separate lists, with which they are convinced to get more votes for the whole of the independence movement.
