The differences that keep Junts per Catalunya and Esquerra Republican have surfaced this morning on account of how to confront suspension of Carles Puigdemont and five or deputies who agreed last day 10 magistrate of Supreme Court Pablo Llarena when dictating The self-conclusion summary.

The legal services of Parliament had issued a report which guarantees that parliamentarians can be replaced temporarily until this situation is regulated, but two majority independence groups have not agreed on How this substitution should be concretised and if it is to affect former president of Generalitat, which is real reason for dispute.

The origin of confrontation that has led to deconvening of plenary has been desire of Junts per Catalunya at meeting of Bureau to exclude from temporary substitution as a member of Puigdemont, when he considers that he is not incarcerated and that , despite lawyers ' report, House is sovereign to decide.

"There are no first and second deputies", y assure from ERC, which indicates hartazgo of this training with Puigdemont. The observance of temporary substitution would imply acceptance of suspension of Puigdemont as a member and that would take away scenario of its restitution as president of Generalitat, which claims Junts per Catalunya since German justice rejected Euroorden Judge Llarena.

Esquerra Republican considers that temporary substitution should affect equally Puigdemont as rest of deputies in prison: former vice-President Oriol Junqueras, excouncillors Jordi Turull, Josep Rull and Raül Romeva, as well as President of Assembly Catalan national (ANC) Jordi Sànchez. Only Junts per Catalunya has raised to table that replacement of members is for two days, in sessions of today and tomorrow, a premise that does not accept ERC. "Eir y put mselves in ir place or y come very complicated days," says Republican Party sources.

The consequence of disagreement has begun to be visualized at 10 hours, when ordinary plenary was not initiated and it has been delayed waiting for table to end its meeting and to reach an agreement that has not occurred, despite attempts to bring postures. Finally spokespersons ' meeting has been convened and has decided to call plenary with only vote against citizens and CUP.

After verifying initial discrepancies, Bureau has agreed at 10.35 hours for a fifteen-minute recess to attempt pact between secessionist formations. The meeting has been retaken later and differences have again been revealed, not only between different independentist formations, but within group of Junts per Catalunya.

After more than an hour and a half of subsequent discussion, Bureau voted on proposal that six deputies indicted by Supreme Court be replaced by anor member of parliamentary group. The proposal has not prospered because a draw has taken place, but it has not been rejected. Hence meeting of subsequent convening of spokespersons ' board to decide what to do with planned plenary.

The two deputies of citizens at table and one of Junts per Catalunya, Josep Costa, have voted against substitution, while two deputies of Esquerra and that of PSC have voted in favour. The decisive vote for replacement of deputies has not been one of Junts per Catalunya, Eusebi Campdepadrós, who has abstained.
