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.
