The Independent/Caroline Mortimer/10-25-17

Catalonia’s vice-president has said that the Spanish government has given them “no choice” but declare independence.

Oriol Junqueras said his party, one of the two in the ruling separatist coalition which forms the Catalan government, is “going to work toward building a republic” because they have a “democratic mandate” following a referendum earlier this month.

PG View: Either way, Spain appears poised to invoke Article 155 before the end of the week, suspending Catalonia’s autonomy.
