President Puigdemont: Catalonia’s push for independence “is for real”
Barcelona (CNA).- The Catalan President, Carles Puigdemont, criticised this Wednesday during the first parliamentary session of control the difficulty of the Spanish politicians in reaching an agreement. Although he forecast that it will take a long time to have a new leader at the head of the Spanish executive, he wanted to warn the future Spanish government that Catalonia’s push for independence “is for real”. “You realised too late” he added, addressing Spain’s future executive. During this Wednesday’s plenary session an extension of the public budget for 2015 has been approved, thanks to 5 votes in favour and 4 abstentions from radical left pro-independence CUP. Both pro-independence forces in the Parliament, cross-party list ‘Junts Pel Sí’ and CUP, described this extension as “fundamental” to launching the social action plan.
