THE MEASURES THAT GOVERNMENT WILL APPLY IN CATALONIA TO RESTORE LEGALITY WILL BE PASSED ON SATURDAY

Madrid / The Spanish Government has today confirmed the refusal of Carles Puigdemont to meet the formal requirement with which he urged the President of the Generalitat of Catalonia to restore the constitutional order altered and, accordingly, announced that he will continue with the procedures provided for Article 155 of the Constitution to restore legality in that autonomous community.

In an official communiqué issued after receiving the reply by Puigdemont, the Government reports that it has called for an extraordinary Council of Ministers next Saturday to approve the measures that will raise the Senate to restore legality in Catalonia. The full text of the communiqué by the Spanish Government is the following:

“The Government of Spain has verified at 10 o’clock this morning, the last deadline, the refusal by the President of the Generalitat de Catalonia to comply with the request sent to him on October 11 and in which he was asked to inform in a clear and precise way if any authority of Catalonia had proceeded to declare the independence of that Autonomous Community and was urged to restore the altered constitutional order.

Consequently, the Government of Spain will continue with the procedures provided for in article 155 of the Constitution to restore legality in the self-government of Catalonia.

Next Saturday, the Council of Ministers, meeting in extraordinary form, will approve the measures that will bring the Senate in order to protect the general interest of the Spanish, including the citizens of Catalonia, and restore constitutional order in the Autonomous Community.

The Government thanks the support of the different political formations with which it is closing at the moment a majority and consensual response to the secessionist challenge. On the other hand, it denounces the attitude maintained by those in charge of the Generalitat to seek, deliberately and systematically, the institutional confrontation in spite of the serious damage that is being caused to the coexistence and the economic structure of Catalonia.

The Government will do everything possible to restore legality and constitutional order, restore peaceful coexistence between citizens and curb the economic deterioration that legal insecurity is causing in Catalonia.” (October 19, 2017, EFE/Practica Español)
