The TC is investigating this week whether Parliament’s initiative calling for the declaration of independence should be suspended

The plenary will discuss whether to accept the Spanish government’s appeal against the initiative, which would entail a preventive suspension. The Housing Act will also be discussed.

The Constitutional Court will examine this week whether the Spanish government of Pedro Sánchez’s appeal against the Catalan parliament’s initiative calling for the declaration of Catalonia’s independence should be accepted, which would mean a preventive suspension of the measure.

The case reaches the Court of Guarantees after the Council of Ministers agreed on March 26 to file an appeal for unconstitutionality against the Popular Legislative Initiative that the board of the Catalan Autonomous Chamber admitted for hearing on February 2.

According to the Minister of the Presidency, Justice and Relations with the Cortes, Félix Bolaños, during the press conference after that Council of Ministers, the government considered it relevant to challenge the initiative, as this “immediately” paralyzes its processing, since the Constitution provides that when the executive goes to the TC and demands the suspension of a provision, it is frozen, something that does not happen with the resources of parliamentary groups.

The TC reported that the call of the central executive has been added to the agenda of the plenary meeting, which is scheduled to meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. That will then be the moment when it will decide whether or not to consider the Spanish Government’s objection to the proposal registered by the Spanish Government. Catalan solidarity for independence and it flourished thanks to the three votes in favor of the Junts and the CUP, the abstention of the ERC representative and the vote against the two members of the PSC in the governing body of Parliament.

Appeal against the Housing Act

In the same way, it is clear that the court will also have to deliberate on whether to hear the appeals filed by the Catalan Generalitat and the Xunta de Galicia against various provisions of the Housing Law, it being understood that the text invades regional powers. Both governments went to the TC to declare the unconstitutionality of the sections they challenged and therefore declare their nullity.
