It's felt like a victory rally For a coalition of catalan pro-indepence parties It succeeded in turning this election into a vote on wether this region should break away from Spain And as the results came in, they claim they had won a mandate to set apart towards independence the pro independentist movement here in Catalonia painting this as a complete victory but it is not the win they wanted It looks like they've got a majority of seats in the catalan parliament but not the majority of votes the liven have to team up with a small anti-capitalist separatist party to have a majority of seats but Catalonia's president painted an ambiguous result as a clear success we have won the plebiscite, this is the important thing will you go for independence now? We have a clear absolute majority in the catalan parliament to go ahead the Spanish government will say he and his movement failed but in the absence of a real referendum his supporters believe they can push ahead we don't get a majority in votes we should question again the population of Catalonia will the Spanish government let you have a referendum? Yeah, that's the problem so, what happens after tonight? A new government and the beginning of the process of independence even if you don't have 50% of the votes in these elections? Yes, because I think it's not fair counting votes if it's not the real referendum the ultimate threat is to declare independence without the consense of the Spanish state it's the tactics of the pro-independence movement, to try pressure Madrid into allowing a proper referendum Sam barrage BBC news in Barcelona
