The head of the Government of Spain, Mariano Rajoy, today will order to file an appeal before the Constitutional Court (TC) against the law of the referendum approved yesterday by the Parliament of Catalonia and he will receive support from Pedro Sánchez and Albert Rivera, with whom will interview at the Moncloa Palace.
After Parliament of Catalonia approved that law with the votes of the deputies of Junts pel Sí and CUP last night, Rajoy immediately requested a report to the Council of State to endorse the appeal.
The Government will receive today the opinion of the Council of State and Rajoy will convene an extraordinary meeting of the Council of Ministers to approve the presentation of the appeal to the TC (Constitutional Tribunal), in which it will request the impugnation of the law.
There is no time fixed for the meeting of Rajoy and his ministers, but for those who will maintain in Moncloa with the Socialist leader and the President of Citizens and in which the common front will be ratified before the independence pretensions to summon a referendum on October 1.
The head of the government will arrange to meet at 12:30 pm with Pedro Sánchez and at 5:00 pm with Albert Rivera after the telephone conversations he held yesterday with both to analyse the decisions by the Parliament of Catalonia on the law of the referendum.
To act against them, Rajoy yesterday gave instructions to the State Attorney’s Office in order to promote before TC an incident of execution of sentence.
The report of the State Council prior to the Government’s appeal to TC must be processed today in the first hour by the first section, eight of which this institution consists.
The first section is responsible for issues arising from the Presidency of the Government and the ministries of the Presidency and for the Territorial and Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Administrations, as well as issues related to conflicts over local autonomy.
The initial opinion of this section will then be transferred to the Standing Committee of the Council, which is composed of the president, the permanent councillors and the secretary general.
An ordinary meeting of this committee was scheduled for today, which should include in its agenda the request of the head of the Government. (September 7, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
