Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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
