Before starting the discussion of the content, spokesmen have engaged in a bitter legal dispute for lack of legitimacy. Most interventions focused on the opposition argued that the Constitutional car is bigger than the rules of the House legal status. Inés Arrimadas, leader of Citizens, said that the findings are a "clear development" 9-N and vote is "have fun that by the Arc de Triomphe".

Forcadell has twice asked the deputies if they were aware of the order of the High Court and in both cases have said yes. "The plenum is sovereign", has alleged Forcadell.

"Separatists Gentlemen: This is an undemocratic act and can not be outside the rule of law," he said the popular has warned that the decision was not "going to go free." "The rule of law act: it will take more or less but it will. And I suspect that will be less than more, "he warned. And it's riveting: "They are putting the Catalan institutions ridiculous and seriously risking self-government".
Gabriela Serra, deputy of the CUP, said that their training recognizes that the people are the legal maximum and stated that the findings put their trust in the democratic mandate of the 27-S and the declaration of the independence process 9-N, already it consecrated the camera can not depend neither the State nor the Constitutional Court. "Not that I want to jump: is that this Parliament is skipped," he said. "We do not threaten: they had to know that we are not afraid. And without fear we will succeed. "
