Madrid gave Catalonia's separatist leader three more days to "return to legality" after he refused to say whether he would follow through on a threat to declare independence from Spain. Responding to an initial deadline set by the central government, Carles Puigdemont sent a letter early on October 16, 2017 calling for talks with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy "as soon as possible" amid Spain's worst political crisis in decades. But he stopped short of giving a definitive "yes or no" as demanded by Madrid after his ambiguous independence speech last week, and Spain gave him until October 19, 2017 to clarify.
