madrid - The Spanish government has moved to the supreme judges of the country for a referendum that the government of the region of Catalonia wants to hold on October 1 on independence. Deputy Prime Minister Soroya Saénz de Santamaría said Wednesday that the government has asked the constitutional court to nullify the holding of the referendum. The Spanish law does not allow part of the country to separate itself.
Meanwhile, the Barcelona government board is debating the divorce, as the government of Prime Minister Carles Puigdemont would like to see. In the Catalan Parliament, he and his small coalition partner have a majority seeking independence.
It is assumed that the referendum parliamentary parliament is voting and for measures to prepare the separation of Spain.
