The Catalan Parliament supported legitimizing Carles Puigdemont as president. In a plenary session on Thursday morning, the pro-independence majority in the chamber passed a motion politically backing the Catalan deposed president in Brussels, although it will have no legal effects. This is thought to be the first step towards the end of the current stalemate in Catalan politics. Currently, parties Junts per Catalunya, Esquerra Republicana and CUP are holding talks to agree on a president and to form a government, which, in theory w,ill put an end to direct rule from Madrid.
