Catalan Regional Elections, December 2017, called by Spanish Primer Minister Rajoy following the October 1st referendum on independence, and the application of Article 155 of the Spanish constitution - an attempy by Spain to maintain its unity. While right wing anti-independence party Ciudadanos won the election, they didn't get a majority - a coalition of pro-independence parties instead restored the exiled Carles Puigdemont to the Catalan presidency.
