Catalonia Deadline Reactions

Barcelona, Spain
16 October, 2017

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has given Catalonia until Monday, 16 October to confirm whether it has declared independence.

If Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont was to confirm he did declare independence, he would be given an additional three days to rectify it, until Thursday, 19 October at 0800 GMT. Failing this, Article 155 would be triggered and Mr Rajoy would suspend Catalonia’s political autonomy and rule the region directly. It is not yet clear if the Catalan government will answer the requirement.
