The Catalan Chamber Board of Spokespersons met at the Catalan Parliament in Barcelona on Monday, with a view of planning an independence strategy in the face of Article 155 being triggered by Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Catalonia has stated that it will officially resist Madrid's orders in the case of Article 155, and that it has meetings planned for Tuesday and Thursday in order to re... Еще-establish their official stance. The meeting on Thursday will be led by Catalan President Carles Puigdemont. On Saturday October 21, Rajoy announced the enactment of Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which imposes direct rule by Madrid over Catalonia. Catalan President Carles Puigdemont said the Rajoy government had proclaimed itself «illegitimately as representative of Catalan will,» and of «disrespecting the popular will» in forbidding the Catalan parliament from having a decisive say in the next regional elections.
