Catalan parliament declares independence during a secret vote on Friday afternoon

Catalan parliament declares independence
The Catalan parliament has voted to declare independence from Spain.


Seventy lawmakers voted in favour, 10 voted against, while two cast blank ballots.

The decision was made during a secret vote in Barcelona on Friday afternoon.

The names of those who voted for independence was withheld, as the Spanish attorney general promised to charge those who voted in favour of independence with “rebellion”.

After the declaration, the Spainish government voted in favour of the application of Article 155 of the Constitution, which allows Madrid to directly administer the breakaway region.

Two right-wing parties, Citizens (Cs) and People's Party (PP), along with the centre-left Socialist Party of Catalonia (PSC), left the Catalan parliament before the vote in protest.
