The governing body of the Chamber decided on Tuesday to continue counting the vote of the deputies prosecuted for alleged rebellion when there are ties in commissions, in which case the vote should be weighted according to the composition of the plenary session.
In these situations, the 34 deputies of JxCat and the 32 of ERC will be taken into account, although four of JxCat – suspended by the TS – do not currently vote in the plenary session because they have not agreed to appoint a partner to exercise their duties. functions, as they have done the two Republicans Oriol Junqueras and Raül Romeva.
The members of Cs and PSC-Units in the Mesa opposed the resolution of the Mesa – which approved the majority of JxCat and ERC – since they understand that it allows the independentistas to approve in commission initiatives that in the plenary session would not prosper , since the votes of Carles Puigdemont, Jordi Sànchez, Jordi Turull and Josep Rull are not counted in the hemicycle.
These groups announced that, in the commissions they preside over, they will not respect the decision of the Board, but will raise to this organ the votes that result in a tie to resolve the situation.
The final decision is of the Bureau and the sovereign majority will probably be imposed again, which will reaffirm the position it adopted at its meeting on Tuesday.
Apart from this question, at the meeting this Friday is also scheduled the processing of the last parliamentary initiatives presented.
