Catalans eye new independence 'referendum'

Press/Media: Other

Description

Last September, Scotland narrowly elected to remain part of the United Kingdom in a historic referendum. Now Catalans will have the chance to register their support for leaving Spain after Catalan nationalists called snap regional elections to be held on September 27.

On January 14, Catalonia's centrist President Artur Mas announced an agreement with his nationalist rivals, Esquerra Republicana (ERC), to run separate tickets but with a shared road map towards secession, making September's vote a de facto referendum on leaving Spain.
