Read in Catalan

A survey has found that there are more Spaniards who reject the behaviour of their acting prime minister Pedro Sánchez in refusing to answer phonecalls from Catalan president Quim Torra than there are people who support the action. Spanish TV network la Sexta found in a survey that 47.5% see Sánchez's avoidance of any contact with Torra in a negative light, while 44.9% see it positively. The rest didn't know or wouldn't say.

The survey also showed that among Catalan respondents 64.7% saw Sánchez's refusal to pick up the phone in a bad light.

Since the Spanish Supreme Court's decision to jail nine pro-independence leaders for sedition, on 14th October, the Catalan president has tried repeatedly to contact Sánchez by phone but, up till now, has not been successful. For his part, the Socialist leader says he will not talk to Torra until he "condemns street violence."
