Spanish Parliament electoral campaign begins with 2 pro indy lists

The Spanish Parliament electoral campaign began just today. Two Catalan political forces are on the run with independence in their programms. Democràcia i Llibertat (Democracy and Freedom) is a center-right coalition formed by Convergència Democràtica de Catalunya, Demòcrates de Catalunya and Reagrupament. The first one was the core of the dissolved coalition Convergència i Unió (CiU). The second one is the pro-independence faction of Unió. This party will be on the run too with a proposal against the independence. Finally, the third force is a tiny faction of Esquerra Republicana who splitted when this party formed government with the Spanish socialists.


The second is list is precisely Esquerra Republicana de Catalunya. This is a leftist proposal whose candidate is a Spanish-speaking independentist. Last elections, the Republicans obtained 3 MPs while CiU achieved sixteen: ten for CDC and six for UDC. Opinion polls give 9 MPs to ERC now and 10 to DiL. UDC will obtain no elected members. Catalonia chooses 47 MPs and, as usual in Spanish elections, a clear unionist victory is expected.
