Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Catalan elections seems to return a very similar parliament. Wikipedia has C's at 36 seats (up 11), followed by JuntsxCat at 34 (up 3), and ERC at 32 (up 6). With continued support from CUP (4 seats, down 6), JuntsxCat and ERC should be able to continue their rule. Unless finishing first gives C's some opportunity to do something.

So the major Yes and No parties increase in size, with increased participation, indicating that the voters see this as the main issue. And with the independence parties slightly increasing their majority. So are we back in October again?
