barcelona - The first prognoses after the parliamentary elections in Catalonia point to a possible tight majority for the separatist political parties. The prognoses are based on studies of media.

The newspaper La Vanguardia called with 3200 voters. For the separatists, the result indicates 67 to 71 seats in the parliament that counts 135 seats. 68 seats thus yields a majority. Predictions before the ballot boxing point to a neck-and-neck race between the separatists and the parties who want Catalonia to continue to hear Spain. There are 5.5 million voter Catalans.

The left-nationalist ERC, a party that is in favor of independence, is heading for some 34 to 36 seats. On the other hand, the polls for the Spanish-speaking Liberal Ciudadanos point to 34 to 37 seats in parliament. The third party that matters is the separatist JuntsxCat, which has 28 to 29 seats. JuntsxCat is the party of the defunct Catalan leader Puigdemont, who still resides in Belgium.
