Rajoy may take the processing of the laws to start Catalonia’s disconnection from Spain before the court
Barcelona (CNA).- The current Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, announced that if Spain’s legal services find evidence that the three laws which would prepare Catalonia for its disconnection process from Spain “could contradict what it is said in the Constitution, the Spanish government will act as it has done up to now”, warned Rajoy. “The government is temporary, but the State, the Constitution and the laws are still in force” he added. Rajoy also announced that the Spanish executive will approve this Friday a conflict of jurisdiction to be presented to the Spanish Constitutional Court regarding the creation of the new Catalan Ministry for Foreign Affairs. In the same vein, Spanish Socialist Party (PSOE) leader Pedro Sánchez admitted to being “deeply worried” about “the steps that the pro-independence movement is taking in Catalonia”. However, he reprimanded Rajoy for his announcement and urged him to “call and agree on the actions to be taken” from now on.
