Reinstating Carles Puigdemont as Catalan president. This is the common goal set by the two main pro-independence parties. The Junts per Catalunya and Esquerra Republicana candidacies announced today an agreement to swear in Puigdemont. But ‘how’ is still the big question. He remains in Belgium, and proposes to be appointed at a distance. It’d be an unprecedented move and the Parliament regulations don’t specify whether it’s legal or not. But the opposition parties are ready to challenge the idea if it is carried out. We talk about the latest news in politics and the judiciary, and we’ll also look into a controversy involving the Three Kings’ Eve parades that took place last week.
