Alejandra Angulo Alonso is joined by Catalan News editor Guifré Jordan to talk about the new single-party government in Catalonia formed by the left-wing, pro-independence Esquerra Republicana, governing solo with support from just 33 seats of the total 135 in the Catalan parliament.
We also hear from Doctor of political science at UAB, Ernesto Pascual, on the future challenges of Aragonès’s administration as well as a report from our correspondent Cillian Shields about the slow divorce between the main Catalan pro-independence parties during this term.
This week's Catalan phrase is ‘Embolica que fa fort’ which means “things are getting even more difficult.”
