THE Spanish government is to announce a set of new measures to be implemented in Catalunya amid the region’s failure to elect a new president.
The new measures, broken down into education, healthcare and employment, are to bring about a degree of normality in the ‘Catalan administration’.
So far details of what shape these will take are not known but the government has ruled out taking control of Catalan television, TV3 and have said the new measure will ‘last until the autumn’ so at least six months.
This comes after the Catalan parliament suspended a confidence debate of ousted leader Carles Puigdemont – who now resides in Belgium under threat of being arrested if he returns to Spain – which has left the region in limbo.
On top of this, Spain’s constitutional court are saying the debate can only take place if Puigdemont is present in person which has resulted in toing and froing between Spain’s Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.
