He experts argue out that a referendum will bring an understanding to the Spanish people on Catalonia cause of secession. If both sides agree to dialogue, it’s also essential for them to come with a constitutional amendment that will adapt to the differences. If Spain resulted in violent measures, it would undermine the agreements of the European Union. However, the decision by the prime minister to derail the referendum to facilitate more discussion is also an excellent way to settle the problem. Although it seems like a kind gesture, it’s also essential for the prime minister to honor the decision of the Catalans. For secession to occur, it is necessary for the Catalans to show up in large numbers. The scholars have condemned the acts of the prime minister of suppressing turnout as it goes against democracy. According to the scholars, the way forward will be through a constitutional referendum and the Catalonian decision should be respected.
