MALLORCA TODAY - Pastor faces expulsion from the PP
The mayor of Manacor, Antoni Pastor, who voted against the Partido Popular partly line in the Balearics parliament yesterday in rejecting the government's law that will mean that Catalan is no longer a a pre-requisite for employment in the public sector, faces being expelled from the party. Pastor has defended his position by saying that the party is causing social division through its language policies and he has also been defended by other parties, e.g. La Lliga, whose leader Jaume Font (formerly a PP member) praised his courage.
