Professor Sujit Choudhry, the “founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions” and others, according to the article by patch.com, have spoken about the crisis that is going on in Catalonia. Choudhry and others have written a letter for both the Spanish governments such as Spain and Catalonia to resolve their issues and put their disputes aside. The letter addresses Catalonia’s president Puigdemont to listen to the people and secede from Spain. The two have differences and need to settle it peacefully before the situation gets even worse. Spain and Catalonia have not been on good conditions as Spain had escalated the situation between them with violence as Catalonia has postponed declaring its own independence. The two presidents need to sit down and have a discussion before any further actions. The population of Catalonia is divided on if they want to secede from Spain and claim their independence. The government will have to vote on the matter and take in the opinions of its people first before anything else occurs. Not wanting any more violence to ensue, the two governments will have to have a discussion to see what will happen. Prime Minister Rajoy in the past has not been on good terms with Catalonia president Puigdemont and other corrupt incidences have happened in the past as Puigdemont was arrested this year. People have expressed the disconnect between the two on social media on various platforms. In a study the article states from George Washington University of Media and Public Affairs, they found that the use of social bots and fake accounts were used to display pro-independence. There seems to be a lot of propaganda and inaccuracies being portrayed. There have been instances where many were arrested for it. The two sides are hoping to have a discussion but many are not so sure they should have one with the growing turmoil between the two. Sujit Choudhry, a professor of Law at the University of California, and an individual who is knowledgeable about law and politics believes the two should have a discussion to settle their issues. Choudhry has served as an advisor for many different countries and is an expert on constitutional law.
