Parliament’s July resolution censuring the monarchy and asserting the right to self-determination is suspended


The Spanish Government is challenging the resolution passed by Parliament on 25 July once again censuring the Spanish monarchy and reaffirming the right to self-determination. The Spanish Government, which had not initially challenged the resolution and chooses to do so a few weeks before the general elections, also asks the President of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, and the other members of the Bureau to be warned of possible criminal consequences. On 10 October, the Constitutional Court accepts the case for consideration, suspending the resolution, and warns Torrent and the other members of the Bureau of the possible criminal consequences of not respecting the suspension. Meanwhile, Ciudadanos challenges the admission of the resolution in Parliament before the Constitutional Court.
