We have four goals: to restore the rule of law, to return to a normal situation and cohabitation, to restore the economy and hold elections- declared the prime minister.

The referendum on independence from Spain was held in Catalonia on October 1. The central authorities and the Constitutional Court consider it illegal.
According to the Catalan authorities, 90% supported the independence of the voters, the turnout was 43%. As stated by the head of the generality, Carles Puchdemon, these results provide grounds for proclaiming independence. However, he proposed to postpone this process in order to conduct negotiations with Madrid. The central authorities demanded an unequivocal answer from Catalonia whether it proclaimed independence, but the message of Pucdemon did not give it - it again spoke about the suspension of the process and about a possible dialogue with Madrid.
