STEPANAKERT, MARCH 23, ARTSAKHPRESS:Jordi Turull, a close ally of former president Carles Puigdemont, needed 69 votes to be elected but obtained only 64.

Sixty-five lawmakers voted against him, while the four members of far-left group CUP broke ranks with the rest of parliament’s pro-independence bloc by abstaining.
