2 June 2018, Barcelona, Catalonia, Kingdom of Spain: Long-term Social Democratic politician, Ernest Maragall i Mira was appointed Counsellor for Foreign Action, Institutional Relations and Transparency within the Autonomous Government of Catalonia.

Ernest Maragall had been re-elected to the Catalan parliament in 2017 after serving as Spanish Member of the European Parliament from 2014 to 2016. 

Ernest Maragall has the challenge to re-open, and possibly expand, the Catalan foreign representations restricting them to the autonomous tasks entrusted to the regional government in accordance to the Spanish constitution, as all of them had to be cease their functions due to their attempts at canvassing recognition for Catalan independence in 2017.
