CATALAN ELECTIONS | Moncloa closes the door to Aragonès’ proposal for a referendum: “It is antagonistic to this Government”

“No and no”. Moncloa has flatly rejected the proposal for an agreed referendum presented this morning by the president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragonès. The Government of Pedro Sánchez neither shares it nor gives it the status of a formal proposal due to the pre-electoral context in Catalonia, with elections called for next May 12. Executive sources call it “electoralist” and, therefore, they do not even want to go into detail or assess the fact that the legal path chosen is the framework of the Constitution. Through article 92, which allows a “consultative referendum of all citizens.”
