Catalonia Headlines for Sunday November 5th 2017

ERC would win December 21st without ensuring a pro-independence absolute majority



ERC would win December 21st without ensuring a pro-independence absolute majority as the pro-sovereignty parties would win between 66 and 69 seats with 46% of the vote. There is majority rejection of Article 155, the UDI and the incarceration of the ex-minister and 70% think that the behaviour of the judiciary helps the independence cause.

There was also a demonstration demanding the release of the imprisoned members of the Catalan government, which was not considered sufficiently newsworthy to make the front page of La Vanguardia.
