Spain announced that they have fired the Catalonia president and dismissed the regional parliament after 70 of the 135 parliament members vote for independence.

The Spanish government on Saturday handed temporary control of Catalonia to Spain's Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria after it stripped the region of its autonomy, the media reported. Moving to quash what he termed an "escalation of disobedience", Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy called December 21 elections in the region under sweeping powers granted by the Senate in response to Catalan lawmakers voting to declare an independent republic.

Meanwhile the regional parliament has been debating a possible declaration of independence. But anti-secession rallies have been called for the capital, Madrid, today, and for Barcelonaon Sunday. The Spanish government has received unwavering support from the United States and its allies in the European Union.

"Morocco, which has itself been facing for several years a separatist threat, does not recognize and will not recognize in the future, the unilateral declaration of independence of Catalonia", said the Moroccan Foreign Ministry in a statement released Friday.

"In these particular circumstances in neighboring Spain, the Kingdom of Morocco fully support the Spanish Government, with a view to ensuring respect for the Constitution and preserving the national unity and sovereignty of the country", the statement added.

Appeals will be lodged in Spain's Constitutional Court and Supreme Court against president Rajoy's decisions, regional government spokesman Jordi Turull said.
