The proposal of Manuel Valls, Barcelona pel Canvi municipal group, is supported by Barcelona en Comú, the PSC (socialists), Ciudadanos and the PP, while the two pro-independence parties Esquerra Republicana has abstained and Junts per Catalunya has voted against. The approved text advocates that the Catalan capital has "the necessary resources and projects" to achieve this status as a co-leader with Madrid, and claims that this new stage of institutional relations should be chaired by "the principles of loyalty, trust and responsibility"  with the purpose of "pursuing exclusively the benefit of Barcelona and the people of Barcelona, with the premise that what is good for Barcelona is good for Spain and for Catalonia."
Barcelona 23 JAN 2020 – 00:15 CET The commission of the Presidency of the City Council of Barcelona has approved on Wednesday a proposal from the municipal group Barcelona pel Canvi led by Manuel Valls in which he urges the government of Mayor Ada Colau to establish the foundations of a new stage of institutional relations with the Spanish Government “guided by the objective of the co-leadership of the city [of Barcelona] in the State with the necessary resources and projects”. The initiative has come forward with the support of the two municipal government groups, Barcelona en Comú and PSC, as well as the Councilors of Ciudadanos and PP, while the two pro-independence groups Esquerra Republicana has abstained and Junts per Catalunya has voted against. The approved text advocates that the Catalan capital has “the necessary resources and projects” to achieve this status as a leader with Madrid, and claims that this new stage of institutional relations should be chaired by “the principles of loyalty, trust and responsibility”  with the purpose of “pursuing exclusively the benefit of Barcelona and the people of Barcelona, with the premise that what is good for Barcelona is good for Spain and for Catalonia.” The text proposes the creation of a permanent joint Government-City Council commission that works on an agenda in which “security, housing, climate emergency, infrastructure, economic promotion and culture” have a reserved place. The municipal group of Barcelona pel Canvi congratulated on Wednesday that its proposal would prosper and through its Twitter account it said: “We are in a moment to generate new strategies. And improve Barcelona-State relations. We have to talk about the future,  not the past. We have to look forward ”  https://elpais.com/ccaa/2020/01/22/catalunya/1579720938_406935.html
