He was the representative for Barcelona from 1914 to 1923.
In 1926 he attempted an insurrection against the Spanish dictatorship of Miguel Primo de Rivera. This uprising was based in Prats de Molló (Roussillon). Although it was aborted by the French Gendarmerie, it gained a lot of popularity for his cause in Catalonia.
In 1931, after the elections that caused the exile of Alfonso XIII of Spain and gave the local majority to his party Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (ERC), Macià proclaimed the Free Catalan Republic in Barcelona, but was forced afterwards to settle for partial autonomy within the new Spanish Republic. Macià was the President of Generalitat from 1932 until his death in 1933. He is buried in the Cementiri del Sud-Oest on Barcelona's Montjuïc.
