On November 9, the Parliament of Catalonia passed a resolution to begin the process of seceding from Spain. The process of gaining independence from Spain consists of forming a government and other state structures, as well as drawing up a constitution.
Madrid disputed the process with a complaint to the Spanish constitutional court, which unanimously voted to abolish the resolution. Catalonia did not recognize the court ruling.
