Pro-independence coalition ‘Junts pel Sí’: “Our candidate to run for President is Artur Mas”

The winning coalition in the 27-S elections, pro-independence unitary list ‘Junts Pel Sí’ insisted that their candidate to run for President of the Catalan Government is Artur Mas. Mas himself stated that what matters now “is the roadmap”and not who is the candidate for President. He addressed this warning to radical left pro-independence CUP, which would bring an absolute majority for pro-independence forces in the Parliament if they join ‘Junts Pel Sí’ but whom refuse to instate Artur Mas as Catalan President. “Now we have a shared responsibility” assured Mas and highlighted that “the priority” was to know if the 72 MPS who favour independence would be able to work together.

Barcelona (CNA).- Pro-independence cross-party list ‘Junts Pel Sí’ (‘Together For Yes’), which emerged as the winners of the 27-S elections, confirmed that Artur Mas is their “candidate to run for President”. At a press conference held this morning, Mas stated that “the responsibility is shared” by ‘Junts Pel Sí’ and radical left pro-independence CUP, which would bring an absolute majority for pro-independence forces in the Parliament if they join ‘Junts Pel Sí’ but whom refuse to instate Artur Mas as Catalan President. “What matters now is to know if these 72 MPS could set up a roadmap together” he said, referring to the sum of 62 ‘Junts Pel Sí’ MPs and the 10 representatives obtained by CUP. “Everybody knows that this is the priority now”, he assured.


‘Junts Pel Sí’ bids for “a broad spectrum government” stated President Mas, who is fourth on the coalition list. He lamented that CUP was focused on who would be the candidate for President and stated that this was not the “transcendental matter”. “What matters now is to know if these 72 MPS could set up a roadmap together” he said, referring to the sum of 62 ‘Junts Pel Sí’ MPs and the 10 representatives obtained by CUP. “Everybody knows that this is the priority now”, he assured. “The responsibility is shared, and when responsibilities are shared they have to be carried out by all those who have them”

CUP wont instate Mas as President

Radical left pro-independence CUP support for ‘Junts Pel Sí’ and President Mas’ candidacy for President, would bring an absolute majority for pro-independence forces in the Parliament. However, CUP have repeatedly insisted that they won’t instate Mas as President. Number two of the party, Anna Gabriel, stated that the Catalan President “has to be a person who can’t be identified with cuts, corruption and privatisations” and recalled that one of CUP’s conditions for reaching an agreement is “to start a disobeying process”. “We are going to make worth of all of our votes” he stated and assured that they will talk to ‘Junts pel Sí’ but also coalition ‘Catalunya Sí que es Pot’.
