From Ciudadanos – a government partner of the PP in the Diputación – they assured that Mazón “has to comply with the agreement”, trusting that the PP is internally arbitrating a solution to comply with the vote of the plenary session and remembering that the orange anda has publicly demanded his resignation.
The PP came out under pressure from the groups and recalled that it has already opened an information file on Bernabé Cano and that it has not yet been closed. He also insisted that the Ministry of Health has still open its investigation file about his vaccination and that no conclusions yet.

Based on this vote, the spokesperson Toni French He stated that, although the PP voted against, “Carlos Mazón has a moral and legal duty to officially ask Cano to resign as a deputy”, adding that “the plenary session has spoken clearly and has asked Cano to leave his act or be expelled of the popular group ». Frances launched a question on the air: “Will the president, Carlos Mazón, comply with the agreement?”. Both the Socialists and Compromís on Thursday accused the popular of “protecting” the so far Sports deputy, insisting that the slogan of all parties at the national and regional level has been to remove the vaccinated charges. Regarding this, the spokesperson for the coalition in the institution, Gerard Fullana, He pointed out that “if Mazón is going to wring the bag and contradict not only the plenary session, but also its leader, Pablo Casado, the best thing he can do is go home.” Likewise, Compromís pressured the PP to also open an investigation to detail why the Provincial Council included Juan Bautista Roselló on the vaccination list without being part of the essential personnel and why another method was followed in the Provincial Home. According to Fullana, “Zaplanismo has turned the Provincial Council into the house of scandals while the administration is conspicuous by its absence.” Regarding the vaccination of Roselló, both the PP and the deputy responsible for Doctor Esquerdo maintain that it was Public Health who indicated that the vaccine should be administered to the center’s staff and who ratified the list in which his name was included.
