Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has urged residents of the region of Catalonia to reject calls for independence.

He made the comments at a rally as politicians in the region start campaigning for an election later this month.

Catalonia's current leader, Artur Mas, is promising, that if he wins, he'll hold a referendum on breaking away from Spain.
