Rajoy says rule of law prevailed in Catalonia by blocking referendum

Puigdemont told the BBC he would ask the region's parliament to declare independence following the referendum, which Spain's government and constitutional court say was illegal and in which only a minority of Catalans voted.

Speaking to reporters, he called for "mediation", "which means there must be the presence of a third party, which must be worldwide to be efficient".

The Catalan government announced that 90 per cent of nearly 2.3 million voters had voted in favour of independence.

Officials in Catalonia said almost 900 people were injured when police tried to keep residents from voting in the referendum, deemed unconstitutional by the Spanish courts.

Trade unions in Catalonia called a strike and a mass demonstration for Tuesday, an action likely to test public support for the Catalan government in the aftermath of Sunday's chaos.

Of around 2.2 million ballots counted, about 90 per cent were in favour of independence.

Going down the independence route won't be easy for Catalonia. The 31-year-old, who grew up and lives on the Balearic island of Mallorca but is also a Catalan speaker, said he had watched events of the weekend unfold "with concern and sadness".

"With their irresponsible conduct they could put at risk the economic and social stability of Catalonia and all of Spain", he said.

"Day after day, the Catalan government is pushing the population to the abyss and inciting rebellion in the streets", Juan Ignacio Zoido said, adding that central government will take measures to "stop the acts of harassment".

More political tension is expected this week as Catalonia's leaders prepare to declare independence - a move that will could take place tomorrow, according to The Independent.

The Spanish government is adamant that he can not and the country's constitutional court ordered the referendum to be suspended last month.

The clash between Madrid and the rebel administration in Barcelona is escalating again after the king, whose word traditionally carries weight in Spain, sought to impose his authority in a televised statement on Tuesday night.
