The Debate

Catalonia regional election: Voters head to polls in bid to solve independence crisis

Today we focus on Catalonia’s regional election, ordered by Madrid after the banned Oct. 1 independence referendum and the jailing of separatist leaders. This was also the first-ever triggering of direct rule provisions built into the Spanish constitution. As Catalonia's political crisis plays out, the rest of Europe is watching. The FRANCE 24 Debate takes a closer look at the situation ahead of the results.
