The speaker of Catalonia's parliament defended ousted separatist president Carles Puigdemont Wednesday as the region's legitimate leader, as question marks remain over how he will be able to take power from self-exile in Belgium.Puigdemont had originally been due to meet with Torrent and four other members of his sacked government at Catalonia's trade mission in Brussels.Puigdemont has said he could be sworn in remotely from Brussels, a plan Spain's central government opposes.Puigdemont would rather return to Spain.Puigdemont went to Belgium at the end of October after the Catalan parliament declared independence.
