Catalonia to declare their Independence on Oct 9



Catalonia has insisted to announce their independence day from Spain on Monday, 9 October after the 95% win on the referendum which was tagged illegal by Madrid.

Catalan President Carles Puigdemont said he favoured mediatation to find a way out from the conflict but that Spain's central government has refused to allow such thing.

A Catalan lawmaker from the pro-independence Popular Unity Candidacy , CUP, party, Mireia Boya, said announcement of independence would follow suit a parliamentary session on Monday to access the result of the Oct. 1 vote to secede from Spain.

“We know that there may be disbarments, arrests … But we are prepared, and in no case will it be stopped,” she said on Twitter.

This moment calls for mediation. We have received various offers in the last hours and we will receive more.” On Wednesday night in a television address, Puigdemont says.

”I am sure that in the next few days we will show the best of our country when the institutions of Catalonia will have to apply the results of the referendum.

“Today we are closer than yesterday to our historic wish.”

Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s government replied;

If Mr. Puigdemont wants to talk or negotiate, or wants to send mediators, he knows perfectly well what he must do first: Return to the path of the law,” it said in a statement.
