Spain: Barcelonians weigh in ahead of anticipated Catalan snap election

Residents of the Catalan regional capital Barcelona shared their opinions on Wednesday, one day ahead of the anticipated Catalan regional snap election. Two residents viewed the elections as an «unlawful imposition» over the will of those who voted in the October 1 Catalan independence referendum. A resident who viewed the elections favourably, instead, stressed the need for no «more fights... Еще between brothers, among families, among everyone.» On December 21, Catalans are set to vote for 135 lawmakers in the regional parliament, which has been dominated by pro-independence parties since 2015. The elections are expected to determine the course of a secession crisis that escalated after the October 1 Catalan independence referendum. The last opinion polls show the Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) party getting 33 seats, while Citizens (Ciutadans) is expected to get one or two less than ERC. The party Together for Catalonia (JxCat), led by former Catalan government leader Carles Puigdemont, is expected to be the third force with around 27 seats.
