Taking possession of deputies
The three parties announce separately that they will resort to the ‘original’ compliance formulas if Congress accepts them
The Popular Party, Vox and Citizens are going to appeal before the Constitutional Court the oath formulas as deputies of the independentista parliamentarians if finally the Table of the Congress validates them. The president of the Lower Chamber, Meritxell Batet, accepted the compliance and did not plan to modify its position.
After the constitutive session of the Congress, the three formations resorted to the oaths of the separatists because they considered that they did not conform to the constitutional framework.

In that brief, Citizens argued that “in the light of what could be said in the same constitutive session, it is possible that several elected deputies did not meet the requirements set forth in the laws for compliance.”
