Spain's Prime Minister Issues Warning, Ultimatum to Catalonia
Friday, 13 October 2017 04:27 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Spain is holding its annual national day celebration Thursday under the cloud of the country's biggest political crisis since a failed coup four decades ago.

Spaniards lined the streets of Madrid carrying national flags as unionists used the holiday military parade to show unity in the face of moves by Catalonia to declare independence.

The wealthy region's intention to break away has plunged Spain into its worst political crisis since an attempted military coup in 1981.

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy issued Wednesday an ultimatum to Catalonian President Carles Puigdemont to clarify by Monday whether he has formally declared independence for the northeastern region.

A majority of Catalonians voted to breakaway from Spain in an October 1 referendum. Puigdemont proclaimed Catalonia's independence on Tuesday during a speech before the region's parliament, but froze its implementation for several weeks to allow for negotiations between the separatists and the Madrid government.
