    The Spanish Government announced that it is about to begin with the procedures for the application of the Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution in the autonomous region of Catalonia. 

    In its statement, the Spanish government said it will begin with procedures for the application of the Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution, which allows the central government in Madrid to suspend the political autonomy of a region if it breaks the law or  declares independence. 

    According to the current plans, the procedures for the application of Article 155 are set to begin on Saturday, October 21st.

    The Prime Minister of Spain Mariano Rajoy also sent a letter to the Catalonian regional leader Carles Puigdemont, urging him to clarify the position on the region's independence. The latter failed to do so, though he said the Catalonian side is always ready for a dialogue with Madrid, adding that the region might declare its independence in the case of absence of a dialogue with Madrid.

    In the past, the Spanish government has already warned of a possibility to begin with the application of the article 155. 

    The Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution allows the central government in Madrid it to take over the running of an autonomous region, should it declare independence or violate the constitution. It is considered an extreme measure and can only be applied with the consent of the absolute majority in the Senate.

    Currently, there are 17 autonomous communities in Spain.
