The Junts meet to decide their vote on the Congress table
Khunts meets on Thursday to decide his position on the configuration of the congressional table two hours before the start of the plenary session. The General Secretary of the formation, Jordi Turul, convened an executive meeting of the party at 8:00 am to determine the direction of their vote, most importantly for the decision of the presidency of the lower house.
A few hours after the vote, none of the congressional presidential candidates, Francina Armengol for the PSOE and Kuka Gamara for the PP, have enough votes to be elected. If each bloc balances its numbers, both will get 171 votes, and it all comes down to what the seven MPs from the junta and the Canary coalition decide.
After verifying the inability of PP leader Alberto Núñez Feijo to form a parliamentary majority, any chance of forming a government goes to a progressive executive backed by the Basque and Catalan nationalist and independence parties. The poll results give the junta a crucial role in the country’s governance and even the viability of the fledgling legislature.
All agree that unless these votes favor a progressive majority in the council, chaired by Socialist Francina Armengoli, the legislature will be doomed to an irreparable deadlock and thus a repeat election.
