Catalonia, just to keep things interesting

Catalonia government president Artur Mas has called early elections for the powerful northeastern region, a vote that will likely be seen as something of a referendum on independence from Spain.

In a regional parliamentary debate Tuesday, Mas set the date for Nov. 25.

Mas called the elections more than two years ahead of schedule after the central government in Madrid last week rejected a demand to grant Catalonia special fiscal powers.

That is from The Montreal Gazette.  Here is FT coverage.  You can follow the issue on Twitter here.

I wonder where Andreu Mas-Colell (Finance Minister of Catalonia) stands on all of this?
