Vox has filed an appeal for amparo on Friday before the Constitutional Court (TC) to invalidate the compliance of the constitution of about thirty nationalists during the constitutive session of Congress and deny them the status of deputies.
The spokesman for Vox in Congress, Iván Espinosa, has filed an appeal for unconstitutionality against separatist deputies accompanied by the general secretary of his parliamentary group, Macarena Olona, and deputy Juan José Aizcorbe.
This is the first appeal for amparo before the Constitutional that presents the formation of Santiago Abascal in the legislature, but “it will not be the last,” said Olona, who has reiterated that Vox will be a “containment dam” against attacks on the constitutional order in Congress, in the courts and on the streets.
He stressed that the 29 deputies affected by the appeal “did not swear or promise by the Constitution”, but “rather, the opposite, swore against it with the acquiescence and support of the president of Congress,” Meritxell Batet, when giving as valid the formulas they used.
According to the secretary general of the parliamentary group, with the formulas of compliance used by the separatists, “the commitment and fidelity towards the constitutional order was clearly denatured.”
