    The Parliament of Catalonia on Monday passed a resolution to begin the process of seceding from Spain.

    MADRID (Sputnik) The initiative was backed by 72 out of 135 votes in parliament.

    The process of gaining independence from Spain consists of forming a government and other state structures, as well as drawing up a constitution. Once a new constitution is accepted, Catalonia will declare its independence. According to supporters of Catalonia’s secession from Spain, the process should take approximately 18 months.
