Secessionism wants the Parlament to recognize the right of Puigdemont to be invested

The independence begins to move card after imprisonment of all its leaders and everything makes foreshadow a new institutional confrontation and return to path of disobedience. Junts per Catalunya, Esquerra Republican and CUP have requested this morning celebration of an urgent plenary of Parliament in coming days to claim freedom of independence leaders imprisoned and possibility that y can be invested Carles Puigdemont, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Turull.

The celebration of plenary going forward because Secessionism has a majority in Bureau and Board of spokespersons of house and because it conforms to forecast of regulation, although it remains to be seen if it can prosper given current parliamentary arithmetic.

The three independentist formations have registered two motions for resolutions this morning in which se requests are collected and will be discussed in that urgent plenary. The celebration date will be set by House table and spokespersons ' board this afternoon, but it is taken for granted that this week.

"Parliament calls for immediate release of members, members of this House who are deprived of ir freedom," says text of one of motions for a resolution. It remains to be seen wher pronouncement can be approved, since magistrate of Supreme Court Paul Llarena has not authorized delegation of vote of some Members who will be absent: Jordi Turull, Josep Rull and Raül Romeva, imprisoned last Friday, and Marta Rovira, secretary general of Esquerra Republican escape in Switzerland.

On same day, Carme Forcadell, former president of Parlament, and deputy Councillor Dolors Bassa, were imprisoned, but y have given up ir seats and have already been replaced in Independentist caucus.

"Parlament commits, as long as this situation lasts, to take necessary measures to ensure that y can exercise ir political rights" Puigdemont, Turull and Sànchez, says at anor time motion for a resolution, "including right to debate and Plenary vote of his candidacy to be invested president of Generalitat. The Reolución also invokes precautionary measures adopted on 23rd day by UN Human Rights Committee.

Meanwhile, spokesman for Junts per Catalunya (JxCAT), Elsa Artadi, explained on Monday that his parliamentary group is looking for formula for Carles Puigdemont to be a non-"symbolic" president but "really". After yesterday CUP was offered to join Board of Parliament to "facilitate" a remote endowment of Puigdemont, despite measures warnings imposed by Constitutional Court to prevent such a possibility, Artadi has now reopened Door to which former president, detained in Germany, is again invested president. "With elements that we have, we must see how we make Puigdemont president, not only symbolic, but President of truth," he said in an interview in TV3.

The President of Parliament, Roger Torrent, announced that today he was going to formally activate first contacts with parties, trade unions and civil society entities to articulate a "common front for rights and freedoms", to "save Democracy". In an institutional message, Torrent stressed that " cause of democracy is above any interest" and added, on day that Expresident Carles Puigdemont has been detained: "Let's put unity, collective intelligence, we set discrepancies, Let's build hope. "

The announcement of Artadi to retake name of Puigdemont for inauguration seems a chimera after Constitutional Court warned on January 28 that could only go to parliamentary debate with permission of Judge Paul Llarena and in person. The house's lawyers warned in his report that telematic investiture was not possible.

Despite this warning, Junts per Catalunya recorded in early February a proposition not of law to reform law of presidency of Generalitat and allow telematic investiture. The idea was parked a few weeks because Esquerra Republican considered that it was to return to path of disobedience, but finally last week gave his arm to twist and bureau admitted initiation of processing of that reform.

The Secretary General of Parliament has also warned in anor legal report that this legal reform can not be used to invest in Puigdemont, but independence has continued with ir plans and Official Bulletin of parliament published last Friday Text for parliamentary groups to submit allegations, denoting intention to seek legal reform.
