New push for independence from Spain

Catalonia elects new separatist president

After months of in-fighting, Catalonia´s pro-independence faction won regional parliamentary elections in September finally came to an agreement this weekend. The parties´ agreement backed Carles Puigdemont, a  separatist, in a vote after the region´s acting head, Artur Mas, said he would step down in an attempt avoid new elections.

The move, which comes three weeks after an inconclusive national election, increases pressure on acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his Socialist rivals to bury their differences and form a "grand coalition" like in Germany.

Catalonia´s politicians have been unable to form a government since a September regional election due to disagreements between the pro-independence parties that together hold a majority in the Barcelona assembly.

The focus of the squabble had been Artur Mas, the eparatist regional president whom the far-left CUP party -- part of the secessionist faction that won the polls -- rejected over his support for austerity and corruption scandals linked to his party.

But at the last minute, Mas agreed to step aside on Saturday, naming the relatively unknown journalist and politician Puigdemont as his successor.

This is expected to open the door for the now-united separatist lawmakers, who form an absolute majority in Catalonia´s parliament, to vote in Puigdemont as new president later on Sunday evening-

Catalonia is one of Spain´s 17 semi-autonomous regions with its own language and customs, Catalonia already enjoys a large degree of freedom in education, health and policing. But fed up after years of demands for greater autonomy on the taxation front the region veered towards separatism.
