The Constitutional Court dismisses one of the appeals presented by Carles Puigdemont and Toni Comín against the Central Electoral Board’s decisions concerning their MEP status


The appeal had been presented on 16 November against the Central Electoral Board’s (JEC) decision not to include the two MEPs on the list of elected MEPs sent to the European Parliament. On the 29th, the Constitutional Court dismisses another appeal against the JEC’s decision to reject the validity of their promises of allegiance to the Constitution, made remotely. The Court argues that the appeal is irrelevant because in practice, both have been freely exercising their duties as MEPs, as decided by the European Parliament. The decision on the appeals comes soon after the JEC’s 3 November letter responding to the president of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, in which it stated that Puigdemont, Comín, Clara Ponsatí (Lliures per Europa) and Jordi Solé (ERC), have not acquired full MEP status.
