Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau Sworn in for 2nd Term After Backing by Anti-Separatists

HeadlineJun 17, 2019

In Spain, Barcelona’s leftist Mayor Ada Colau was sworn in Saturday for another term after she managed to keep her post despite losing by less than 5,000 votes to a Catalan separatist during last month’s European Parliamentary elections. Colau was re-elected by City Hall representatives after members of the Socialist Party and representatives backed by former French prime minister and Barcelona mayoral candidate Manuel Valls voted for her in an effort to prevent a Catalan separatist from becoming mayor.
