Carles Puigdemont presented his political platform ”Junts per Catalunya” (Together for Catalonia) in hotel Oostkamp, accompanied by 90 candidates from Barcelona. The elections to the regional parliament in Catalonia are scheduled to take place on 21 December.

    “We are going to make a classic tour,” said the Flemish nationalist senator to Belga, the Belgian news agency. “We will start with the Beguinage before visiting the canals, the Grand Place, the castle … I’ll serve as a guide.”
