Agreement and elections campaign

The Catalan National Assembly (ANC) started a campaign to put pressure on political parties for a secession roadmap to be agreed upon. The independence process, which gathered momentum last November 9 with a symbolic referendum, has since stalled after the two biggest separatist parties have failed to agree on an electoral arrangement to bypass Spain’s permanent ban on a legal referendum.
