Despite the unanimous decision of the Spanish Constitutional Court to suspend the symbolic sovereignty consultation on 9 November, the Catalan authorities reported they will maintain it.
The counselor of the Presidency of the Catalan Government, Francesc Homs, said on Tuesday that “everything is ready” for the participatory process of November 9, which “remains” to “guarantee freedom of expression.”
Homs stated that the Government of Catalonia will also present arguments to the high court against the suspension and the Catalan president, Artur Mas, it will file a complaint against the central government for blocking rights as citizen participation.
“You can not forbid what is not done,” insisted Homs. “And this government will never do anything against the freedom of expression and ideological freedom of its citizens.”
Previously, the Constitutional Court had reported that admitting an appeal process submitted by the Spanish government against this inquiry, the court unanimously adopted the decision, which suspends the administrative acts in view of its organization, while awaiting a decision on its legitimacy.
