The commons will vote "no" to the budgets of Barcelona City Council and will force Collboni to submit to a vote of confidence

Barcelona en Comú has decided to vote “no” to the budgets of Barcelona City Council, thus maintaining its promise of not validating the annual accounts if an agreement was not reached for its inclusion in the municipal government. Given this situation, the mayor of the city, Jaume Collboni (PSC), is forced to submit to a vote in a plenary session that will foreseeably reject the budget proposal closed with ERC.

The councilors of these two forces do not add up, with their 15 councillors, to the necessary majority. Thus, in practice, the position of the commons forces Collboni to submit to a question of confidence to carry out the accounts, in such a way that there will be a period of one month in which the opposition can present a new proposal for mayor. and, if an absolute majority is reached, cause a change of government. If this does not happen, the municipal government’s economic proposal is automatically approved.
