Journalist (Spanish): «And what happens with the officials of the Catalan administration who resist the instructions that come from the new authority?» Saenz de Santamaria (Spanish): «The agreement, in the terms in which it is written, is a deal that allows for its gradual and progressive implementation. This leads to the fact that if this administration obeys the Constitution and the laws, its... Еще implementation is necessary only in order to apply the government measures. But our obligation is to put the administration back onto the path of the Constitution and the Autonomy Statutes, therefore it is expected that there could be cessations and removals of those officials that openly continue not to comply with the Constitution and the law.» Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Maria Soraya Saenz de Santamaria stated that President of the Generalitat of Catalonia Carles Puigdemont «won’t hold that position any longer,» in a statement in Madrid on Monday. Puigdemont's dismissal is one of the measures proposed by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy in response to the Catalan independence referendum. The measure first requires the Senate's approval. «A soon as that agreement is published, he [Puigdemont] won’t hold the signature of President of the Generalitat, he won’t be able to take decisions that are valid and mandatory for third parties nor for his own government, as a consequence of his cessation,» Saenz de Santamaria said.
