No government for Spain's Catalonia until end of year

A far-left Catalan separatist party said Tuesday it would decide on December 27 whether to back the re-election of the regional government’s leader. The move leaves the economically powerful region without a government until the end of the year. Two pro-independence parties won a majority of seats in the 135-seat Catalan parliament for the first time in a local election on September 27 but remain deeply divided over the formation of a new government.
