26-Jun-24: 'Countdown to potential new election starts as no presidential candidate named'

Political parties have to find support for a presidential candidate by August 26. If not, Catalans will vote again on October 13. The deadline is fast approaching after the parliament speaker has set an equivalent act to the one of a presidential investiture debate. No presidential candidate had been named by any parties after May 12 election, with Socialist Salvador Illa and Junts' Carles Puigdemont as the main contenders.
