Catalan pro-independence parties request parliamentary vote on Monday

MADRID, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Pro-independence parties Junts pel Si and CUP have requested a debate and vote on independence from Spain to be held on Monday at the regional government’s parliament, a regional government political source said on Wednesday.

They made the request at a closed-door parliamentary committee held on Wednesday, the source said.

Pro-independence parties hold a slim majority of seats in the regional government meaning that any vote on a declaration of independence will be a formality. (Reporting By Sonya Dowsett; Editing by Paul Day)
