The initiative also rejects and condemns “the positioning of King Felipe VI and his intervention in the Catalan conflict”, since he considers that he justified the police charges of October 1, 2017.
With this resolution, the central executive has stressed that the constitutional position of the head of state “should always be left out of use in the partisan debate” and has announced that it will adopt “the legal measures at its disposal to always prevent those actions that undermine the constitutional position of all of the State institutions “in defense of legality and the Constitution.
The Government considers this resolution “politically unacceptable”, that it has gone ahead with the votes of the communes, JxCat and ERC -69 votes-, the abstention of the CUP -4- and the rejection of PP, PSC and Cs -57-. In addition, stresses that it “is the product of the drift of the independence groups that, inexplicably, have had the support of another parliamentary group, in their irresponsibility to use Catalan institutions to encourage conflict and not to serve the general interests of all the Catalans “.
“The legal extravagance of this attempt to condemn and reject HM King Felipe VI, which lacks any legal and constitutional basis, does not detract from the performance carried out this afternoon by the aforementioned groups,” the Ministry of the Presidency argues in a statement. .
The same resolution of the communes has made the parliament have condemned “repressive acts against citizenship and threats of illegalization” against Catalan parties, alluding to the voices of the PP and Cs that have recently proposed to ban the CUP.
