The Catalan regional parliament is preparing to strip the president troubled region of his seat because he disobeyed Spain’s strict rules on election propaganda.

The expected move is likely to fuel anger among die-hard pro-independence supporters, who see in the decision by the governing body of Catalonia’s parliament yet another grievance with Spanish judicial decisions.

Parliament officials announced the decision to strip Quim Torra of his seat yesterday, but it has to be formally confirmed by the house.

Torra, a fervent separatist, will be allowed to remain as the head of Catalonia’s regional government.

Spain’s electoral board ruled that Torra should be stripped of his lawmaker’s seat after a Catalan court barred him last month from public office for 18 months for disobedience.

Torra was found guilty of refusing to remove from public buildings yellow ribbons, used by separatists to call for freeing several imprisoned politicians and activists, which violated the country’s strict rules on campaigning.
