A delegation of the left republican Catalan party Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (ERC) Sunday in Brussels samengezeten with Carles Puigdemont. The conversation went about the installation of Puigdemont as president of Catalonia, even though he is in Spain to be arrested.
The meeting of Puigdemont, and several members of the ERC had as a goal to an effective inauguration’ of Puigdemont, reports a source within the party of Puigdemont. “The negotiations to shoot at’ and there will Monday continue talking, it sounds.
The separatists captured in the regional elections of december 21, a majority in the Catalan parliament. Puigdemont wants again to be president, and had thought that he was remotely the oath would be able to cover. The Spanish constitutional court doesn’t allow that, however.
In the onafhankelijkheidskamp, there are two tendencies arise: a part that wants what the cost Puigdemont to power, while others – in particular within the ERC – a candidate would like to search for Catalonia to actually control. Officially remains the ERC, however, Puigdemont support.
