Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
It is not possible to "cancel" the local government of Catalonia. The Spanish government can commandeer the regional government to enforcce the constitution, in a limited fashion. People are suggesting that Rajoy might use this power to call a snap Catalan regional election - which is normally a decision the Catalan regional premier takes.

Government sources tell the Spanish press if the PSOE does not support Rajoy, he might call a snap Spanish election.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
