Catalonia Votes to Start Breakaway Process From Spain

MADRID — Catalonia's regional government on Monday voted in favour of a resolution to split from Spain, launching a so-called roadmap towards independence which the central government in Madrid has vowed to block.
The declaration on secession, the first step which pro-independence parties hope will lead to the northeastern region splitting from Spain within 18 months, was backed by a majority in the regional parliament.


Parties favouring independence from Spain won a majority of seats in the Catalan regional election in September. The Spanish constitution does not allow any region to break away, however, and the centre-right government of Spanish premier Mariano Rajoy, facing a general election in December, has said it will immediately seek to block the resolution in the courts.

Catalonian Lawmakers Approve Plan for Secession From Spain

BARCELONA, Spain — The regional parliament of northeastern Catalonia approved a plan Monday to set up road map for independence from Spain by 2017, in defiance of the central government.
The Barcelona-based chamber passed the motion by 72 votes to 63.
The proposal was tabled by pro-secession lawmakers from the "Together for Yes" alliance and the extreme left-wing Popular Unity Candidacy (CUP). The groups together obtained a parliamentary majority in regional elections in September.
Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has previously vowed to take legal action against the Catalan parliament if it was to approve the secession plan. Rajoy was scheduled to speak later Monday.
The motion passed by the parliament in its first post-election session, declared "the start of a process toward the creation of an independent Catalan state in the form of a republic" and a "process of democratic disconnection not subject to the decisions by the institutions of the Spanish state."
Separatist lawmakers stood up and applauded the victory that will likely put them on a collision course with the central government and Spain's highest court.
"There is a growing cry for Catalonia to not merely be a country, but to be a state with everything that means," Raul Romeva, head of the "Together for Yes" alliance, said at the start of the session. "Today we don't only open a new parliament, this marks a before and after."
Catalan branches of Spain's ruling conservative Popular Party and the Socialist and the Citizens opposition parties had filed appeals to halt the vote, but Spain's Constitutional Court ruled last Thursday that it could go ahead.
"You want to divide a country by raising a frontier within the European Union," Citizens regional leader Ines Arrimadas told separatist lawmakers.
