It is now six months since Catalonia’s self-government was suspended and direct rule from Madrid was imposed by the Spanish executive. After the Parliament made a declaration of independence on October 27, Spain’s president Mariano Rajoy dismissed the Catalan government, dissolved the Parliament and called a fresh election for December 21. The mechanism used to take control of Catalonia’s institutions was article 155 of the Spanish Constitution.
