1. Catalonia is a participatory democracy, where each and every citizen can feel part of the administration of public affairs and the common good.

2. The state administration is obliged to make all relevant data available to voters in relation to public spending, even at municipal level, and encourage collective participation -previous debate- in the decisions regarding priorities that must be reflected in the budgets.

3. Remuneration of all elected representatives shall be public. Their salary will be set annually by Parliament, and in any case will not exceed 10 times the amount of the basic income for a dignified life.
