This Great Graphic was posted just now on Presseurop, which it took from a local television report. It gives a quick and preliminary look at the election results in Catalonia. Mas' CIU party appears to have lost a few seats, but the left nationalist party ETC picked them up and more.
Recall that until September Mas was not a secessionist. Mas sought the same deal Basque Country receives. However, Prime Minister Rajoy refused to renegotiate the fiscal transfer program that is a source of the region's 42 bln euro debt.
Assuming the most optimistic results of this preliminary estimate, the center-right and center-left nationalist parties would have about 59% of the members in the 135 seat chamber. This would be a little more than it has now. However, for those seeking to turn the snap election into a referendum on independence, the results are not compelling. Surely such an important, even unprecedented decision of secession requires more than such a slim parliamentary majority.
Nevertheless, Mas may have succeeded in getting Rajoy's attention. It does not mean Rajoy will cave-in, but negotiations can resume.
