Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont to deliver speech at 1500 GMT

MADRID (Reuters) - The president of Catalonia’s regional government, Carles Puigdemont, will deliver a speech at 5 p.m. (1500 GMT), his office said on Thursday.

Puigdemont is set to call a snap regional election, according to his political allies, a move that could help break a one-month deadlock between the Madrid government and separatists seeking a split from Spain.
