This is what Javier Pérez Royo, Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Seville, has to say about @jordialapreso's investiture.
The one and only requirement of the Spanish Constitution & of the Statute of Catalonia is for the proposed candidate to be an elected MP and not to have lost his/her right to vote & be voted through a final judicial sentence.
If this requirement is fulfilled, nobody can stop the proposed candidate from attending the session.
The President of the #Catalan Parliament must approach the judge who has imposed the precautionary measure (of pre-trial detention).
Not in order for him to authorise the candidate to attend the investiture session but rather in order to require him to make the arrangements for the candidate to be there.
The judge has no authority in this matter. The only person with authority is the President of the Catalan Parliament.
This is the ABC of parliamentary law. It's embarrassing to have to put it in writing almost 40 years after the Spanish Constitution came into force.
