The task that the former president of the Generalitat Carles Puigdemont tried to deal with, this Thursday inBerlinIt has been tarnished. A strike by air traffic controllers inBrusselsprevented Puigdemont and his entourage, including his former advisers and also escaped the Spanish Justice,Toni Comínand Clara Ponsati, fly from the community capital in time to fulfill a program conceived in electoral key.

Because of the plug in Brussels, first a visit to a refugee center so unusual in the journeys of the leader ofLliures per Europa (Junts)on his visits to Berlin that seemed programmed to fill time. Then he canceled the one that was going to be his first appointment with the media at 11.00. Neither could he arrive, at 1:00 p.m., at the headquarters of theGerman Parliamentfor a meeting with German deputies whose names were never given. The call with the means scheduled at 4:00 pm at the doors of theReichstag, and supposedly to inform their contacts, was not held either. Puigdemont and his delegation still did not reach their destination.

The former president, ready to play his program and take a photo before the media in the seat of Parliament, where hours before the Die Linke party presented without penalty or a motion in favor of his cause, agreed to the Bundestag at 17.00. New request for patience to the media, which was cited, this time at 18.00. After that time, the delegation canceled the meeting, because at 7:00 pm, Puigdemont, Comín and Ponsatí held an electoral ceremony in a hotel in the capital with a direct line to Catalan voters through the YouTube channel of Junts per Cataluña.

What he did and who Puigdemont interviewed at the time he was inside the building is under question mark. It is very probable, however, that his time in Parliament will remain in a cafe or in some handshake with deputies of Die Linke. Thursday was, until late at night, voting day and their lordships were obliged to remain in their seats.
