(ANSAmed) - MADRID - Ciu and Erc, the two majority parties in Catalonia's government, have drafted a declaration on the region's sovereignty expressing the 'will' to exercise the right to decide to create a new sovereign state within the European Union. The three-page document is scheduled for a vote on January 23 at the regional parliament and has been handed over only to majority groups. The text states the 'democratic sovereignty of Catalonia as a political and judicial subject' and asks its legitimization through a referendum'.
