The new leadership of Junts per Catalunya, which will begin its mandate on June 4 in Argelers, in the French region of Catalunya del Nord, will be in charge of preparing a proposal for a political paper to update the party's roadmap and strategy and the modification of the statutes so that the presidency of the party also has executive functions and not only representation, as has happened until now.
The second phase of the JxCat congress, in which the documents will be discussed, will be on July 15 and 16 at the Farga de l'Hospitalet. It is in that appointment that other modifications of the statutes are also intended to be dealt with, such as everything related to the congresses. In the current text it is stipulated that there is an ordinary congress every two years and that each year there must be at least one consultative congress. The intention is to fix the term of the congresses every four years, the natural term of a political mandate. In this way, ambiguities such as the one that existed in recent months will be avoided, since it is not clear in the statutes how long the mandates last.
In that second appointment is in which the pact policy will be reviewed at the local and supra-municipal level, for example, and other programmatic issues that in recent months have sparked some debate within the party.
For the Argelers conclave, in which Jordi Turull and Laura Borràs will become the general secretary and the presidency, the audit on the degree of compliance with the agreement with the Esquerra Republicana in the Government will almost certainly be ready, which the leadership of JxCat commissioned a few weeks ago for the first anniversary of the investiture of Pere Aragonès as president of the Generalitat.
Borràs has advocated today in an interview on Catalunya Ràdio for submitting the results of that audit and the continuity of his space in the Executive to a consultation of the militancy. In an interview with this medium, the president, who voted against the pact validation a year ago, pointed out last weekend that if she had made the government pact, "she would have done it differently."
Both Borràs and Turull have been interviewed today in the Catalan public media. In statements to TV3, the future general secretary of Junts has opted for an evaluation of the pact with the socialists in the Barcelona Provincial Council "talking with all those interested", which also includes the mayors that JxCat has in the province, and, from here, "make a decision". Borràs, on the other hand, has always opted to break that pact and has stressed that all "fundamental" decisions must be consulted with the militancy. In this sense, he has recalled that in Junts the opinion of the militants "is always binding".
