Six days after meeting of Constitution of Catalan parliament, question of who will chair chamber remains unresolved. Carme Forcadell's decision not to revalidate post, which he has reported this Thursday, opens way for or candidates and in pools are names such as socialist Excouncillor and candidate elected by Esquerra Ernest Maragall or foreign councillor Raül Romeva. The presidency of Parliament will have a key role if Junts per Catalunya insists on a telematic inauguration of former president Carles Puigdemont and which is not covered by regulation.
Separatism, with 70 MPs of 135 deputies, plans that Republican one occupies two positions at table of Parliament, among m presidency. Whoever presides over house is one who has last word on how to interpret Parliament's rules, among or things. During last legislature, opposition considered that Forcadell had always favored positions of independence.More information

The Republican Party officially does not confirm any names. All waiting for Forcadell to make a decision about his future. Since ERC, in fact, y say y want to first secure independence majority at table and n enter to talk about names. If eight deputies in Brussels or in prison cannot participate, y would depend on vote of Commons. But few are willing to accept a charge that involves making decisions with serious legal consequences.
Ernest Maragall. The veteran politician is oldest member of 135 elect, 75 years old. That is why old table will be chaired, body which is to watch over parliamentary conformation votes. The Exsocialist — he left party in 2012 for differences over how sovereignty was addressed in PSC — he had already been an MEP by Esquerra. In his departure, Forcadell suggested that his successor or successor should be free of court cases. Pascual Maragall's bror and an education advisor would comply with this condition.
Raül Romeva. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Institutional Relations of Generalitat is anor of candidates who have been put on table. The EXMEP on initiative has problem that it does weigh a judicial cause, same as on Forcadell. Romeva, in fact, was in provisional prison and went out after paying a bail. In 2015, when ERC and extinct Convergència agreed Junts pel Yes, Romeva was his headline, which implies that it generates great consensus.
Antoni Spanish. The leader of Demòcrates, Independence Democrats, is anor candidate. Spanish left United Democratic and had been secretary of universities of Generalitat. Demòcrates decided to go to ERC list in last elections as independent. Spanish was number 15 for Barcelona.
