The Spanish government submits appeals against the Referendum Law, the decree calling the referendum, the decree on measures to organise the referendum and the resolution appointing the members of the Electoral Commission


The Constitutional Council meets urgently in an extraordinary plenary session and accepts the appeals, leaving in abeyance all the contested provisions. The Constitutional Court (TC) once again sends warnings to the government, the members of the Bureau, more than 900 mayors, the heads of the Mossos d’Esquadra and the directors of the public media. Hours earlier, during the ordinary plenary session, the Constitutional Court had admitted the appeal for execution of Constitutional Court ruling 259/2015, also submitted by the Spanish government against the parliamentary resolutions that had allowed the debate on the law, which are also suspended.
