The submission and its outcome have part Catalans. Approximately 90% of voters supported a split from Spain, however turnout was just around 42%, to a great extent since hostile to freedom Catalans did not appear.

Barcelona cab driver Ana Maria Lopez, who restricts a split, said Puigdemont “believes he’s a ruler” and said an announcement of autonomy would be insane: “Him pronouncing freedom resembles me proclaiming ‘From tomorrow I’m a princess’,” she told CNN.
