Catalonia: 90% vote ‘yes’ to become an independent state

Catalonia’s regional government has announced that 90 percent of those who participated in an independence referendum banned by Spain’s central government choose to be separated from the country.

While addressing a press briefing early on Monday, regional government spokesman Jordi Turull announced that 2.02 million Catalans had voted “yes” to the question: “Do you want Catalonia to become an independent state in the form of a republic?.”
