Calls for resignation of Balearic Island president as she flouts curfew

PRESIDENT of the PP in the Balearic Islands, Biel Company, calls for the “immediate” resignation of the President of the Government, Francina Armengol. She was allegedly seen in a bar well after curfew on Tuesday, October 6.

Regulations on the islands to curb the coronavirus pandemic require bars and restaurants to close before 1 a.m.

The president and several senior ministers met on the night in question for a working dinner. After dinner, the president and her colleagues “found an open establishment, specifically the Hat Bar, and entered.”

The president claims that they left the bar at around 1am, however “at the time of departure, the Director General of Communication suffered a blackout,” so they waited outside until he recovered.

Unfortunately for Armengol, the owner of the bar does not corroborate her altruistic story. He claims that the only reason he was non-compliant with curfew rules was because the president and her colleagues were there, and he did not feel like he should close.

Company said that being in a bar until almost 2am against her own government’s laws showed Armengol’s “great cynicism, hypocrisy and irresponsibility.”

For this reason, she urged the president to resign “out of respect for people and out of respect for politics in the face of such serious facts.”
