    Catalan President Puigdemont’s error

    Posted by Ivo Cerckel on October 29th, 2017

    His error was to declare the form of the new state, i.e., republic, at the same time as he declared the new state.

    Carles Puigdemont is a Catalan politician, who became the president of the guv’mint of Catalonia, Catalonia being a semi-autonomous region of the Kingdom of Spain, on 12 January 2016.

    As president of that region, he declared on Friday 27 October 2017 the independence of Catalonia from Spain.

    His error was to declare the form of the new state, i.e., republic, at the same time as he declared the new state. If he hadn’t, Madrid could not have ousted him. If the so-called “Catalan” republic had not been just the successor to the former Spanish region, it would have more difficult for Spain to oust him.

    Look, if you are an anarchy, no foreign invader can take over your non-existent institutions. Conversely, if you secede from the state “as region” of the state and you keep the same personnel (president, vice etc.) after the secession, it’s easy for the Leviathan from which you seceded to retake control.

    Puigdemont, continuing normally as president, calls for democratic opposition to 155

    He can however only “continue” as president of a region of the Kingdom of Spain. Not as leader of a new Leviathan. Why did he declare the republic at the same time as the new Leviathan? He should fire his legal advisers

    Positive is however that the law which is now applicable in Catalonia is natural law which leaves no room for social democracy.

    I would love to be an abogado and argue a civil-law case before a Catalan court on Monday.
