Catalonia election: Separatists win majority
FeaturedNewsComments Off on Catalonia election: Separatists win majority
Voters in Spain’s Catalonia region have given a majority to parties seeking Catalan independence. However, Catalan President Artur Mas, who called the early election and pushed for independence, lost seats. His centre-right CiU remains the largest bloc, winning 50 seats out of 135, down from 62 last time. The left-wing separatist ERC won 21 seats. But a BBC correspondent says despite their combined majority, the parties may be unable to work together.
Both the CiU and ERC want to hold a referendum on independence from Spain.
