Spanish government agrees to call new elections in Catalonia

The Spanish government and the opposition Socialists have agreed to hold new elections in Catalonia in January. This comes after the government declared to hold a meeting on Saturday to decide whether to invoke Article 155 of the Constitution, which will allow the national government to suspend the autonomy of a region if it undermines the interests of the country. Earlier, the Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont threatened to announce the independence of Catalonia if Madrid refused to hold talks. Pro-independence groups also called on supporters to withdraw cash from banks as a means of protest.
