The Central Electoral Board orders to remove “estelades” and yellow ribbons from the Catalan government’s buildings


The Central Electoral Board dismisses Quim Torra’s appeal against its order to remove “estelades” and yellow ribbons from public buildings during the campaign for the general elections and gives them 24 hours to comply with the requirement. Torra announces that for the moment he won’t remove the banner with the yellow ribbon from the façade from the Palau de la Generalitat, but asks for a report to the Catalan Ombudsman and lodges an appeal before the Contentious Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court against the decision of the Central Electoral Board, and asks for his provisional suspension. Societat Civil Catalana and Abogados Catalanes por la Constitución also file a complaint against Torra before the Public Prosecutor’s Office.
