Josep-Lluís Carod-Rovira (Catalan pronunciation: [ʒuˈzɛb ʎuˈis kəˈɾɔd ruˈβiɾə]), was born 17 May 1952 in Cambrils, Spain) was the Vice-president of the Catalan Regional Government from 2006 to 2010. From 1996 to 2008 he was the leader of ERC Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya (Republican Left of Catalonia). ERC campaigns for Catalonia's independence from Spain and, secondarily, extend it to other Catalan influence regions, the whole Catalan linguistic domain. He was one of the two Vice Presidents of the Catalan autonomous government formed after the 2006 Catalan regional election. He now serves as vice president of the Ramon Llull Foundation. In the previous 2003 cabinet, he was First Minister (Catalan: conseller en cap) of the Generalitat de Catalunya. After his, at times, controversial style, eventually the other partners in the cabinet forced him to resign after his action culminated in a secret meeting with representatives of the Basque separatist group ETA, which was leaked to the press; this was followed by general political pressure asking for his resignation.
