Leader of the Ciutadans (Citizens) party in the Catalan Parliament Ines Arrimadas cast her vote in the regional elections at a Barcelona polling station on Thursday. Arrimadas voted alongside her husband and former nationalist politician Xavier Cima at the Ausias March school in Les Corts at 12:30 (UTC+1). The leader of Ciutadans was reportedly greeted with boos and whistles. Speaking to... Еще reporters outside the polling station, Arrimadas called the vote a “historic” day. As for her party’s chances, she said, “the polls are showing all kinds of results, but we are seeing encouraging signs.” Catalans are voting for 135 lawmakers in the regional parliament, which has had a pro-independence majority since 2015. The elections are expected to determine the path of the secession crisis, which escalated after the October 1 Catalan independence referendum. According to opinion polls, either Arrimadas centrist, anti-independence Ciutadans (Citizens) or the pro-independence Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) could emerge from Thursday's election as the largest party.
