The Plenary of the Constitutional Court (TC) has admitted for processing the appeals of the PP deputy Alberto Casero and the Popular Parliamentary Group against the president of Congress, Meritxell Batet, for the vote on February 3 of the labor reform, which went ahead for 175 votes in favor against 174 against.
Legal sources have informed Europa Press that the magistrates have admitted the appeals after this week the Second Chamber of the court raised the briefs to the Plenary and left the decision regarding admission in their hands.
It was last February when the PP announced that it would take to the Constitutional Court the "democratic outrage" that, in its opinion, was committed in the vote on the labor reform. Speaking to Europa Press, spokeswoman Cuca Gamarra assured that that day "the right" of Casero was violated, that she warned "in advance" of what had happened with the telematic vote. She, in her opinion, had "capacity" for the deputy to vote in person.
The Popular Group presented the appeals before knowing the report of the lawyers of the Congress, who concluded that Casero's vote in favor of the labor reform was valid and that it could not be revoked even if he was wrong. In that report, it was also ruled out that there was a failure of the computer system.
This same Tuesday, the magistrates have also admitted the appeal presented by the Vox deputies, who took the case to the Constitutional Court, considering that the popular will had been "stolen" in the vote on the labor reform. "The reform had to come out civil or criminal, and it came out criminal," said the then secretary general of the Parliamentary Group, Macarena Olona.
After the decision of this Tuesday, the Plenary will study the resources and will issue a sentence to indicate whether or not it supports the arguments of the formations.
