Spain's PM says he could use constitution

Spain's PM says he could use constitution”

A disputed independence referendum in Catalonia last Sunday has led to Spain's biggest political crisis in decades, with the national government in Madrid condemning the vote as illegal, unconstitutional and invalid.

The crowds have turned out at Plaza de Colon in a sea of Spanish flags, with some jumping into a fountain and dancing.

Considering the economic repercussions for both Barcelona and La Liga -- also indeed Real Madrid -- and its ramifications for European, and in turn, world football, it is unlikely that Barca would contest a separate Catalonian league.

Mr Puigdemont is set to address the Catalan parliament on Tuesday, and although it remains unclear what he plans to say, many secessionists are urging him to declare unilateral independence.

"We need to have it".

There is speculation that the parliament will declare independence unilaterally at its next sitting. Spain, a signatory country to most worldwide civil and human treaties, must answer for the abuses allegedly perpetrated by its forces. "And that would be very risky for the government of Catalonia, because it does not have majority support among the population", he adds.

Meanwhile, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has denied requests for mediation, vowing to block independence, which could signal more ruptures to come in the European Union. "To be honest, he's bad".

Political instability in Catalonia has already caused major banks and companies to relocate their headquarters to other parts of Spain and has polarized Catalan society, where roughly half of the citizens want to stay in Spain.

"The tension and violence have risen a lot". "It has created a lot of fear and that is very unsafe".

Deadline today for undocumented immigrants to renew DACA status
President Trump announced the end of the program last month, putting recipients in limbo . Under the administration plan, no new DACA applications are being accepted.

However, Rajoy ruled out using mediators to resolve the crisis, and also said the issue would not force a snap national election. "We have to listen to them with respect and not with force or blood, like what happened with ETA".

About 10 companies have chose to relocate their legal headquarters from Catalonia to other places in Spain over fears of an unilateral declaration of independence, media reported on Saturday.

Spain's government approved a decree Friday that would make it easier for Catalan companies to move base out of the region.

Trapero, who does not yet face any charges, is accused of failing to order Mossos to rescue Civil Guard police who were trapped inside a Catalan government building in Barcelona by tens of thousands of pro-independence protesters.

The Catalan government says more than 90 percent of people who voted in an October 1 referendum voted in favour of independence from Spain.

Millo said in an interview with Catalonia's TV3: "When I saw those images - and knowing that people were hit [and] shoved ... all I can do is apologise on behalf of the officers who intervened".

"I feel sad to think how bad our country is, how bad our government is", she said.

After the court hearings, the Catalan officials were allowed to leave.

The Catalonian government, however, says that 90 percent of those citizens that cast ballots in the contested independence referendum are for independence.
