Spain Takes the First Step Towards the Direct Rule of Catalonia

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy took the first step on Wednesday toward suspending Catalonia’s political autonomy and ruling the region directly to hinder independence, Reuters reports.

STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 11, ARTSAKHPRESS: He demanded that the regional government clarify whether it now considered itself independent following a speech by Catalan president Carles Puigdemont on Tuesday night.

This requirement is a necessary step before triggering Article 155 of the constitution, which would allow Madrid to suspend the region’s political autonomy.
