Madrid setzt Puigdemont ab und löst katalanisches Regionalparlament auf

Carles Puigdemont

Der katalanische Regierungschef Puigdemont schloss gestern Neuwahlen aus, das Regionalparlament kommt heute Mittag ebenfalls wieder zusammen - möglicherweise auch, um doch noch die Unabhängigkeit auszurufen. Er warf Madrid vor, eine Einigung zu verhindern. Puigdemont sah sich in seinem Vorgehen durch das katalanische Referendum vom 1. Oktober bestärkt.

Zuvor hatte es aus Puigdemonts Umgebung geheißen, er wolle Neuwahlen für den 20. Dezember ansetzen. Mariano Rajoy hatte zur Entmachtung der Regionalregierung aufgefordert, die mithilfe des Artikels durchgesetzt werden kann. 70 Abgeordnete stimmten dafür, dass Regierungschef Puigdemont die Unabhängigkeit ausruft. Die meisten Abgeordneten der Opposition hatten nach heftiger Debatte noch vor der Abstimmung den Saal verlassen. "Der Rechtsstaat wird die Legalität in Katalonien wieder herstellen", twitterte er nur wenige Minuten nach der Abstimmung im katalanischen Parlament.

Zu den von Rajoy angekündigten Maßnahmen gehören auch die Absetzung des katalanischen Polizeichefs, die der katalanischen Regierungsvertreter in Madrid und Brüssel sowie die Schließung der katalanischen Vertretungen weltweit, ausgenommen in Brüssel. Mit Hurra-Rufen und dem Ruf "Unabhängigkeit" bejubelten sie die Entscheidung des Parlaments, bevor sie feierlich - viele mit erhobener Faust - die katalanische Hymne anstimmten.

Die Europäische Union erkennt die Unabhängigkeitserklärung Kataloniens nicht an. Damit wird erstmals seit 1978 der Verfassungsartikel 155 aktiviert, der es ermöglicht, "aufrührerischen" Regionen die Autonomie zu entziehen. "Für die EU ändert sich nichts", schrieb EU-Ratspräsident Donald Tusk auf Twitter.

Das katalanische Regierungsbündnis JxSí (Vereint für das Ja) und die linksradikale CUP hatten den Antrag auf Konstituierung der Republik im Parlament eingebracht. Er rief die Spanien angesichts der Entwicklungen in Barcelona zur Ruhe auf.

Unmittelbar nach der Unabhängigkeitserklärung stürzten die Aktienkurse der katalanischen Banken ab. Die Kurse der CaixaBank und der Sabadell waren bereits Anfang Oktober nach dem Unabhängigkeitsreferendum stark gefallen.

Die Krise um Katalonien hatte sich in den vergangenen Wochen dramatisch zugespitzt. Allerdings nahmen nur 43 Prozent der Wahlberechtigten an dem vom spanischen Verfassungsgericht für illegal erklärten Referendum teil.
