President of People's Party of Catalonia (PPC) Xavier Garcia Albiol said that Puigdemont and Vice President of Catalonia Oriol Junqueras still have time to back down and prevent the government from triggering Article 155, when speaking to the press in Barcelona on Thursday. “They have 12 or 14 hours to try to redo the situation to prevent the government to act upon the rule of law to restore the... Еще normal coexistence in Catalonia”, he said. Spokesperson of Omnium Cultural Marcel Mauri said that Parliament will “put an end to the spiral of repression from the state”, which has caused the association to “suffer in our own skin with the imprisonment of our leaders.» Catalan President Carles Puigdemont said that he will not hold a snap election, as he cannot guarantee Madrid will uphold their side of the bargain in suspending its decision to trigger Article 155. The clock is now ticking towards the moment Madrid lays down the law and resumes full control of Catalonia. The Spanish national Senate is expected to approve the application of Article 155 on Friday.
