Spain's Constitutional Court blocked a Catalan secession drive on Wednesday, deepening confrontation and adding to political uncertainty in Spain before this month's national election.Parties favoring a split from Spain won a majority of seats in the Catalan parliament in September, although they fell just short of half the vote.Spain's parliament in October gave the Constitutional Court powers to fine or suspend authorities that do not carry out its rulings, shoring up its legal powers to deal with any Catalan independence bid.Opposition to Catalan independence is a vote winner across the political spectrum in the rest of Spain, especially for Rajoy's party and newcomers Ciudadanos, a centrist party founded in Catalonia.
