Pro-independence parties WIN elections

Pro-independence parties in  Catalonia region have won an absolute majority in regional elections on September 27th.  The main  alliance, Junts pel Sí (Together for Yes) and a a smallest anticapitalist party, Candidatura d'Unitat Popular (People's Unity Candidacy), won 72 seats in the 135-seat regional parliament. Absolute majority. The Junts per Sí alliance won 62 seats. If it combines with the far-left separatist CUP party, which won 10 seats, it will be able to form a parliamentary majority.



The victory gives them a clear mandate to form an independent Catalan state.Spain's central government in Madrid has pledged to challenge any unilateral moves towards independence in court.

Together for Yes (Pro independence) 1,620,697 39,54 % 62 MPs
Citizens (Unionists, Center)                 734,538 17,92 % 25 MPs
Socialist Party (Unionists, Left)           521.916 12,73 % 16 MPs
Catalonia, We Can (Self-determination) 366.274  8,94 % 11 MPs
People's Party (Unionists, Right)          348.350  8,50 % 11 MPs
Popular Unity Candidacy (Pro indep.)   336.292  8,21 % 10 MPs
Democratic Union (Self-determination) 102.835  2,51 % 0 MPs

Turnout: 77,44 %


So pro independence parties won with a clear majority: 1,956,989 versus unionist 1,605,774. The parties for a new state won a 47,75 %, and the others against it only 39,15 %. Anyway the two parties who are for Catalonia's selfdetermination won 469,109 what it means a 11,45. Catalonia, We Can (left) and Catalonia's Democratic Union (right) want a referendum to decide the nation's future but they mix people who wants a Catalan new state with other ones who want to negotiate, once more, with Spain. In any case, none of these voters, wants to keep the statu quo. Only Citizens and Popular Unity defend it and they only sum one quarter of the votes. Exactly 26,42 %.
