The Constitutional Court prohibits remote investitures of presidents of the Government of Catalonia


The Constitutional Court overturns the amendment of the Presidency Law allowing for the investiture of a president of Government of Catalonia to take place remotely and for government meetings to be held remotely. On 2 February it had already overturned Parliament President Roger Torrent’s motion calling a plenary investiture session for Carles Puigdemont on 30 January 2018, which ultimately was not held. However, the Court will reject the PSC’s appeal for protection against the processing of the amendment to the Presidency Law via the single-reading procedure.
