Catalan leader warns of escalating crisis with MadridTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -“To solve what the government has called an extraordinary serious situation, it will create an even more serious extraordinary situation by seizing Catalonia’s political autonomy,” Carles Puigdemont wrote in a letter to the Spanish senate on Thursday.

The Catalan regional president insisted that taking over powers from the semi-autonomous region would be an “affront” to Spain’s constitution.

Spanish senators are expected to approve measures on Friday that would remove Catalonia’s independence-seeking leadership and suspend its semi-autonomous status.

Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told the parliament on Wednesday that the government was determined to invoke Article 155 of the Spanish constitution, which allows Madrid to impose direct rule over the wealthy region.
