31-Jan-18 TV News: ‘Messages from Puigdemont leaked to the media’
“Our people have sacrificed me.” This was Puigdemont’s reaction after the Catalan Parliament president, Roger Torrent, postponed the debate to pick Puigdemont as president, again, while waiting for the Spanish Constitutional Court's decision on the issue. These comments weren’t meant to be public, but a private Spanish TV station leaked them. This episode has made the discrepancies in the pro-independence bloc clearer, regarding what to do next as Spain continues to obstruct Puigdemont for president. Meanwhile, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is revving up its engines, with less than a month left for it to start.
