The Parlament replaces Puigdemont and the deputies in jail and saves the general policy debate

El Parlament sustituye a Puigdemont y los diputados presos y salva el debate de política general

He Parlament de Catalunya has approved on Tuesday substitution from Carles Puigdemont and the deputies prisoners, saving in this way the
general policy debate
and the beginning of the full activity of the Chamber. A debate that is marked by the altercations experienced at the gates of the Parlament last night, when a group of pro-independence protesters tried to assault the institution and faced the Mossos d'Esquadra. This episode has centered all the conversations today of the deputies in the palace of the Parc de la Ciutadella.

JxCat and ERC manage to maintain the tight independence majority in this way. Puigdemont and the others prosecuted for rebellion -Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Jordi Sànchez, Jordi Turull and Josep Rull- will keep their delegated vote and the minutes, but they will not receive the salary of a deputy, as happens since the Supreme Court judge Pablo Llarena dictated the resolution of suspension.

The agreement of the groups of Govern has gone ahead with the support of the Comuns and the CUP in the first point, where they have rejected the suspension of the deputies, while in the second point, the one that proposed to replace them, has only had the favorable votes of JxCat, ERC and CatComú. Here the CUP has voted against, while Cs, PSC and PP have chosen not to participate in the vote. Both PP and Cs have been absent from the House during the votes that they have labeled as "simulacrum without legal coverage".
