Jordi Sànchez, who has been behind bars for almost five months now, is requesting permission to defend his candidacy for president by appealing the ruling made by the Spanish Supreme Court. After Carles Puigdemont, he is the second pro-independence MP to try to become Catalan leader - and also, to come up against Spain’s opposition.
