After an hour of meeting between Adriana Lastra and Gabriel Rufián to test the Republican formation about their possible support for the investiture of Sánchez, ERC maintains its "no" to the Sánchez government.
"During the conversation there has been no indication that the Socialist Party go to abandon the repressive way to face the political conflict between Catalonia and the state, "ERC said in a statement. Without this condition, he adds," there can be no rethinking of the position of the Republican Group in Congress. "
However, both parties, the statement adds, have agreed on the need to continue maintaining contacts. "From the Republican Group it is expected that this first meeting will be the prelude to others that should end up happening. The bet of Esquerra Republicana is the political resolution of the conflict through a negotiating table. And advance in urgent social matters blocked in Congress and in the Parliament of Catalonia. "
They also highlight the "cordiality" in which the meeting between both spokesmen has been held.
