The parties in favor of secession won the majority of votes in the elections to the Catalan parliament, according to the exit poll of the GAD3.
The poll shows that the Socialist Party of Catalonia (PSC) has received the most votes, which may count on 34-36 seats, but parties in favor of secession are likely to form a regional government.
The Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) can count on 36-38 seats in a 135-seat chamber, and the center-right JxCat (Together for Catalonia) has 30-33 seats.
According to the exit poll, representatives of the left-wing People’s Unity Candidate (CUP) (7 seats), the right-wing Vox (6-7), the liberal Civic Party (6-7) and the center-right People’s Party (4-5) will also join the Catalan parliament.
In the previous term of the government, the ERC and JxCat coalition did not have a majority. The Reuters agency writes that the most likely scenario is a new coalition of these two groups.
Commentators expect the government to retain the region’s interim premier, Pere Aragones (ERC), who has been in office after Quim Torry (JxCat) has been suspended, the Supreme Court banned from public office 1.5 years after the 2019 elections. Torra has refused to remove the separatist symbols from public authorities in Catalonia.
In Sunday’s elections in Catalonia, due to the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, a record number of voters voted by post, and commission members at polling stations were wearing protective gear.
