The Catalan parliament holds its first session since the December 2017 elections, in Barcelona on Wednesday, January 17.

Some 81.94 percent of the Catalan electorate cast their vote during the regional elections. The pro-unity Ciutadans won the elections, but failed to secure a parliamentary majority, winning a total of 37 seats. Pro-independence Junts per Catalunya, Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (ERC) and Popular Unity Candidacy (CUP) secured 34, 32 and four seat respectively, but have not yet reached a coalition agreement.
