MADRID (Reuters) - The leader of Spain's newcomer liberal party Ciudadanos Albert Rivera on Wednesday called for a pact with the People's Party and the Socialists to enable a stable government in Spain and protect the country from an independence move in Catalonia.

"We propose a pact between the PP and the PSOE so that nobody takes advantage of the weakness, uncertainty and instability to break up this country," Rivera said during a conference in Madrid.
