The Catalan political system has been subject to a series of major challenges in recent years following the creation of the three-party coalition government in December 2003, which was renewed in November 2006. The party system has been at its most fluid since the late 1970s. The origins of this shift are to be found in comparative economic decline and the impact of immigration in the territory. One consequence of a growing Catalan discontent with the failure to agree to the full implementation of the 2006 Statute of Autonomy has been the consolidation and normalization of the discourse of Catalan independence.
