Election authorities have excluded Catalonia's former president Carles Puigdemont, who fled Spain in 2017 after leading a failed secession bid, from EU polls, his party said Monday.

In a statement, Together for Catalonia accused the electoral commission of wanting to "silence and push aside" Puigdemont's candidacy "so that he can't explain what he represents at the heart of European institutions."
