The first live appearance of Jordi Turull for the Spanish general election campaign has taken place live from his Soto del Real prison.

The head of Lleida's Junts per Catalunya (JxCat) list for Spanish Congress took part in the event in Alt Urgell, in north-western Catalonia, via video conferencing this Saturday morning. 

Turull called for his constituents to take advantage of the Spanish elections to legitimize the 2017 independence referendum, deemed as illegal by Spain.

Turull said he sees the Spanish election as a "great opportunity" that will be played out "in the ballot boxes", and has insisted on sending a message to Spain and the rest of the world that, by filling the ballots with Catalan independence votes, it will send a clear message of the "determination" of Catalonia to be free.
