Suspension of Catalan self-government will continue if Puigdemont does not appear in Parliament to be reinstated as Catalan president and tries to be reelected from Brussels. This is what Mariano Rajoy claimed this Monday morning during a party officials meeting. The Spanish leader said that the measures that his government implemented, following the declaration of independence “will continue to be in force until a new president takes office after the elections.” And Rajoy said that swearing anyone in by proxy is “impossible.” According to him, “taking office from Brussels” is not viable.
