The Catalan president, Quim Torra, has said he hopes there is "no repeat" of Monday's protest outside Parliament.

On the first anniversary of the October 1, 2017 referendum, hundreds of pro-independence activists threatened to storm the chamber in Barcelona and clashed with the Catalan police.

According to the Catalan head of government, those events "are not representative" of the independence movement. For him, unlike some incidents on Monday evening, the 2017 referendum was held with faces shown.

After some criticism about the Catalan police response to some protests on Saturday and on Monday, Torra announced his home affairs minister, Miquel Buch, would appear before the Parliament to give an explanation.

President Torra made such remarks during the annual three-day general policy debate in Parliament, in which he set a deadline to the Spanish president to agree on a referendum on self-determination in Catalonia.
