Spain To Suspend Catalonia’s Government, Call Elections

Spain’s government said Saturday that it will move to suspend Catalonia’s separatist government and call fresh elections in the region in a bid to stop its leaders from declaring independence.

Speaking after an emergency cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, said his government had no choice after Catalonia’s separatist government acted in a way that was “unilateral, contrary to the law and seeking confrontation” in holding a banned independence referendum.
