Vox replies to Batet and denounces the "kidnapping" of Congress by COVID-19

The general secretary of the Vox group, Macarena Olona, ​​has denounced the "kidnapping" of the control functions to the Government after the president of the Congress, Meritxell Batet, assured this Wednesday that the Chamber maintains its powers intact despite the crisis of the coronavirus.

In a statement this Wednesday, Olona assures that since March 23 there has been no agreement to convene a telematic session of the Board of Spokespersons, which prevents Vox from reporting the "gag to the opposition" to the Constitutional Court, as which, as he recalled, is a "necessary requirement to exhaust this previous step".

"They lie. The deputies do not maintain our possibilities of acting because they have suspended all activity. Except for that which the Government gives the go-ahead. It is an institutional coup," he criticizes.

Batet, in an institutional message, has guaranteed that, as long as the state of alarm and the health emergency caused by the coronavirus pandemic lasts, the House will continue to legislate and control the Government.

According to the President of Congress, registration is open, questions for a written response from the Government continue to be processed and the deputies retain their responsibilities and can request that sessions be convened, although, he points out, by telematic means.

Batet points out that all the actions and initiatives that can be postponed are accumulating, except those that due to their "urgency" must be processed as soon as possible, in the case of the Health Commission, which will meet weekly while the emergency lasts and will have the assistance of the branch minister Salvador Illa.
