Ramírez recalled that, according to the ruling, NC did not function or did not exist, “just like thousands of other parties that do not function” despite having obtained representation in all the elections in which they had been presented or receiving funding from the Ministry itself. inland.
“The basis of the sentence was not the non-presentation of the accounts, but the non-adaptation of the party’s statutes, something that we did just after the 2017 and 2022 congresses were held. Nothing came to the party leadership and we did not find out. of the opening of the judicial file”, lamented the Secretary of Organization of NC.
In this way, it has indicated that they will file a lawsuit once they have access to the judicial file to be able to defend themselves with respect to the sentence that points to the extinction of the registry party for not having operation.
