Spain's PM Mariano Rajoy to speak at 1300 GMT

MADRID, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy plans to speak at 2 p.m. local time (1300 GMT) on Friday, the PM’s office said, after Catalan separatists wanting to break away from Spain won a regional election on Thursday.

Catalonia’s separatists look set to regain power in the wealthy region after the election, deepening the nation’s political crisis in a sharp rebuke to Rajoy and European Union leaders who backed him. (Reporting by Paul Day; Editing by Jesus Aguado)
