Catalonia still has no president. But one thing is certain: if the pro-independence parties are not able to agree on a new leader within two months, a new election will be automatically called. It would be the third time Catalans would have to go to the ballot boxes in a year after the referendum and the December 21 election. Jordi Turull failed to get enough votes to become president in an investiture debate today in Parliament. Why? Four far-left CUP MPs, essential for the pro-independence parties to command an overall majority, decided to abstain.
