Catalan separatists parties hit deadlock over formation of new government as clock ticks towards election

The clock is ticking towards another regional election in Catalonia as separatist parties continue to disagree over the formation of a regional coalition government.

Negotiations between the ERC and Junts parties are currently in deadlock, with a little over two weeks until the deadline for the triggering of another regional ballot.

Yesterday saw a statement from the ERC which stated it planned to try to form a minority government on it’s own, which has triggered Junts to call for immediate talks to find a resolution to the stalemate.

If the regions parliament fails to elect a new president by the 26th May, a new vote will be called.

The region held an election on the 14th February with no party gaining a parliamentary majority.
