The deposed former president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, has confirmed he intends to continue his fight for the region’s independence.
His comments come after yesterday’s Catalan regional election in which his party, Junts per Catalunya (JxC) won 34 percent of the votes.
Despite finishing second to pro-unity party Ciudadanos, the JxC are expected to form an absolute majority in parliament alongside the Catalan Republican Left and the CUP.
Carles Puigdemont, the former president of Catalonia who is currently seeking refuge in Brussels hailed the results as a ‘new political step’ that would be ‘marked by political solutions, not by repressions.’
He said the fight for independence would go on.
