Roger Torrent postpones sine die the full investiture of Carles Puigdemont as president of the Government of Catalonia


Torrent claims that his goal is to achieve an investiture debate that is ‘effective and secure.’ On 20 February, the socialist party MPs submitted an appeal for protection to the Constitutional Court against Torrent’s decision. Crowds form outside the doors of Parliament after a demonstration was called by the ANC together with Òmnium and the CDRs to mark the planned investiture of Carles Puigdemont. Police intervention by the Mossos d’Esquadra is necessary when some demonstrators try to break the cordoned off access the Parc de la Ciutadella. Two people are arrested, both of whom are released on charges the next day.
