The government of Catalonia gives in to pressure from the Constitutional Court and dissolves the Electoral Commission


The Electoral Commission is dissolved at the request of the government of Catalonia to avoid the coercive fines on its members imposed by the Constitutional Court on the 20th. In turn, the government of Catalonia has dismissed the Secretary General of the Economy, Josep Maria Jové, with the aim of protecting him from the Constitutional Court fine. The Head of Electoral Processes and Consultations of the People Area, Montserrat Vidal Roca, remains in office and is appealing the measure to the Constitutional Court.
