Spain: Government could use Article 155 in other autonomous regions

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy asked for 'a period of political calm' in Catalonia after the forthcoming regional elections on 21 December and confirmed that his government would be prepared to use Article 155 again if other autonomous regions threatened Spain's constitution, speaking in Madrid, Wednesday. When asked about planned constitutional reform, Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Soraya... Еще Saenz de Santamaria said that her plans owed more to President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker than former Vice-President of Catalan government, Oriol Junqueras. In a lighter moment, opposition spokesperson Margarita Robles had an embarrassing slip of the tongue to roars of laughter from the Chamber: «Spain is going through its worst crisis in the last 40 years of dictatorship... Excuse me, of democracy.» On October 28, the Spanish government dissolved the Catalan parliament and announced snap elections.
