MADRID, Oct 4 : Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy on Saturday called for dialogue as Catalonia leaders pressed ahead with a vote on independence in defiance of Madrid.
"The law and dialogue, these are
the ways out of the situation in Catalonia... no one is above the law," Rajoy said, adding: "I want us to stay together."
His comments came a day after Catalan leaders said they would defy a Constitutional Court ruling that provisionally blocked the planned independence referendum on November 9. ?AFP
