CATALONIAN CRISIS, WAITING OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF EARLY REGIONAL ELECTIONS TO AVOID STATE INTERVENTION

Barcelona / Crisis unleashed by Catalan separatism in Spain is awaiting the an appearance of the President of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont to announce the official call for early elections in Catalonia, after the meeting with his regional councilors and deputies of his political formation (Junts pel Sí) in the Parlament.

This decision represents a 180-degree turn, since until today it was expected to be a declaration of independence, without contemplating other scenarios, but Carles Puigdemont has given a turn in his plans and he has been willing to call elections to the regional Parliament, if the Rajoy´s Government renounces the application of Article 155 of the Constitution, which would removes the possibility of a declaration of independence, according to sources told Junts pel Yes (JxSí).

Thousands of people with independence flags and shouts of “traitor” and “independence” have been concentrated at Plaza de Sant Jaume, where the Palau de la Generalitat is located, especially young students who participated in a demonstration in favour of the release of the leaders from ANC and Òmnium Cultural, who are in pre-trial detention.

The appearance of the regional president has been announced and delayed several times this morning, thus increasing the expectation about the possible evolution of the conflict.

All this happens on the same day that the Spanish Senate votes the application of Article 155 in Catalonia in commission, which empowers the Rajoy Government to implement measures aimed at restoring constitutional legality in this autonomous community for discussion and approval tomorrow on the Senate floor.
