In his first speech as president of the Constitutional Court, Candido Conde-Pompido had to explain things like the fact that Spanish unity, for him, is not negotiable. “The Constitution does not allow for secession, independence or self-determination,” he said this Wednesday before a plenary session of his ten compatriots after being voted into the presidency. An explanation might be expected from a pro-independence politician, but not from a member of the Supreme Interpreter of the Constitution. But it is necessary, as Condé-Pompido considered, after the electoral process that lasted for months in the corridors phase and which took place in parallel with the most eventful partial renewal in the history of the Court of Guarantee. All this in the midst of a firestorm caused by the PP, which at the same time has blocked the renewal of the judiciary for four years, accusing the government of Pedro Sánchez of trying to attack it.
