The lawyers of the Congress refuse to limit the inviolability of the king

The lawyers of the Congress of Deputies have rejected in writing the admission for processing of a bill proposed by the PNV to limit the inviolability of the King, pointing out that this proposal is contrary to the legal regime contemplated by the Constitution in this matter referring to the Head of state.

In their brief, the lawyers of the Congress point out that this bill "invades the existing constitutional reservation regarding the essential elements of the Crown defined in Title II of the Constitution, by seeking a normative development contrary to the legal regime of inviolability of the Head of State".

PSOE, PP and Vox will take advantage of this letter from the lawyers to reject tomorrow the PNV's proposal to change that royal prerogative, which has the support of Podemos, ERC, Más País, Compromís, Bildu, Junts and PDeCAT. On other occasions ERC and Más País have tried to carry out similar initiatives that have always come up against the same front.

Thus, in February of last year the PSOE, PP, Vox and Cs groups voted against the non-law proposal presented by the ERC, which asked to revoke the inviolability of King Felipe VI and withdraw the capacity of Juan Carlos I.

And in September 2020, the same bloc prevented a bill for More Country and Compromís from advancing so that the inviolability of the King would be limited to public activities in which he acts as head of state, but not in the private sphere, when represents himself.
