Spain: Rajoy attends PPC pre-campaign rally in Barcelona

Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy attended a Catalan Popular Party (PPC) pre-campaign rally in Barcelona on Sunday, marking his first visit to Catalonia since his government imposed direct rule over the region.

Rajoy appeared alongside PPC leader Xavier Garcia Albiol and other candidates ahead of the regional elections on 21 December.

The Spanish government brought Catalonia under direct rule after a unilateral declaration of independence by the Catalan parliament following an independence referendum on October 1.
