Initiative for Catalonia

Initiative for Catalonia
   Initiative for Catalonia (Iniciativa per Catalunya— IC) was formed in 1987 by Rafael Ribó—who had replaced Antoni Gutiérrez as General Secretary of the communist Catalan United Socialist Party (PSUC) after the 1982 Spanish general election-in alliance with left-wing nationalists. Its sister organization within the Spanish state is the United Left (Izquierda Unida—IU), but the old tensions between Catalanism and communism remain. The leader of the Spanish communists and of IU, Julio Anguita, has rivalled José María Aznar in his anti-Catalanism, which has led to a desire on Ribó"s part to distance himself from IU. In the 1996 Spanish general elections IC won two seats.
