Simon Harris: January 10th 2016
A date by date account of the negotiations between Junts pel Sí and the CUP over the investiture of the new President of the Generalitat, which have lasted more than three months.
Junts pel Sí win the elections and obtains 62 deputies, which isn't enough to invest their candidate, Artur Mas, as President of the Generalitat. The same night, the CUP, who won 10 seats, reiterated that they wouldn't invest Mas. However, both parties agree to sit down and negotiate.
The anti-capitalist party proposes a rotating group presidency, or a collegiate government, like in Switzerland.
The CUP demands acts of disobedience by Parliament before the investiture and an emergency social policy plan.
Parliament is constituted. The CUP vote in favour of Carme Forcadell as Presidency of Parliament, but decide not to form part of the Mesa (permanent parliamentary committee).
Parlament passes the Declaration of the Beginning of the Independence Process with the support of 62 deputies from Junts pel Sí and the 10 from the CUP.
