Catalan parliament to vote on secession in showdown with Madrid

Catalonia’s pro-independence regional parliament is expected to launch a secession process in Spain’s wealthiest region on Monday, in a showdown with the central government in Madrid. Catalan pro-independence parties — which won a majority in the regional assembly for the first time in September elections — will vote on a resolution calling on the assembly to start working on legislation within 30 days to create a separate social security system and treasury, with a view to securing complete independence as early as 2017. The resolution has the backing of Catalan president Artur Mas’ Together for Yes coalition and the smaller far-left separatist CUP party, which together have a majority in the regional assembly, with 72 seats of the 135 seats.
