The Spanish government is taking the Parliament Bureau’s decision to allow CUP’s motion on self-determination to the Constitutional Court. The move follows the same path of the resolution proposed by Junts per Catalunya, Esquerra Republicana, and CUP as a response to the Catalan Trial ruling, which has already been invalidated by the Constitutional Court. 

At a press conference, the acting spokesperson for the Spanish government, Isabel Celaá, assured that the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, and the other members of the Bureau knew they were breaching high court resolutions when CUP’s motion was admitted and when requests for reconsideration were rejected. The motion will be voted in a Parliament plenary next week, November 12-13.

The minister of Agriculture, Luis Planas, has reminded that the Constitutional Court already issued warnings to the parliament speaker, Roger Torrent, and other members of the Bureau of the consequences of not complying with previous rulings.
