The president of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC), Elisenda Paluzie, has called on Saturday for the independence parties to block a hypothetical investiture of Pedro Sánchez after the elections on April 28 if he does not recognize the self-determination of Catalonia.
Paluzie has referred to the investiture of the next Prime Minister in a statement to Catalunya Ràdio made before leaving for Madrid to attend the demonstration called for this afternoon in protest against the trial of "procés" and for which they have been hired more of 500 coaches.
According to the president of the ANC, the independentist parties have to consider the Congress of Deputies and the Senate as "foreign front" and act accordingly, especially in situations where their votes are decisive.
Elisenda Paluzie has pointed out, in this sense, that the pro-independence parties represented in both houses "can not invest as president someone who does not recognize the right of self-determination" of the Catalans, and recalled that, "for now", the current president and candidate for re-election by the PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, "has not recognized him".
On the demonstration scheduled for this afternoon at the Paseo del Prado in Madrid, the president of the ANC has indicated that "we have to go with the same message everywhere" and recalled that the last "mass mobilization" of Catalans carried out outside of Catalonia took place in Brussels in December 2017.
Paluzie has considered that the demonstration on Saturday may be "more massive" still, since less than 300 buses were moved to the Belgian capital and more than 500 coaches traveled to Madrid.
