Acts for Constitution Day, live





The Congress of Deputies commemorates this Sunday the Day of the constitution with the traditional institutional act, which on this 42nd anniversary will be held on the street, in the Carrera de San Jerónimo, with the presence of representatives of the high institutions of the State but, due to the coronavirus epidemic, with a reduced number of guests, among whom will be, for the same reason, representatives of health professionals.

As reported by Congress, its president, Meritxell Batet, will deliver a speech on the steps of the Puerta de los Leones, accompanied by the President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez; the president of the Senate, Pilar Llop; the Bureau and the parliamentary spokespersons of both chambers, members of the Government and the presidents of the Constitutional Court, Juan José González Rivas, and the General Council of the Judiciary, Charles Lesmes.

Representatives of other institutions are invited to the event, such as the Ombudsman, the Court of Accounts, the State Attorney General’s Office and the Council of State; the presidents of the autonomous communities and cities and the mayor of Madrid; the president of the majority opposition party, Pablo Casado; deputies and senators; former presidents of the Government and of Congress and the Senate, and living constitutional speakers.
