It's felt like a victory rally for the coalition of catalan pro-independence parties it suceeded in turning this elections into a vote on whether this region should break away from Spain and as the results came in, they claimed they have one mandate to set a path to world's independence The pro-independence movement here in catalonia are painting this as a complete victory but it is not the way they wanted It looks like they have got the majority of seats in the catalan parlament but not the majority of votes They even have to team up with a small anti-capitalist separatist party to have the majority of seats but Catalonia's president painted an ambigous result as a clear success we have won the plebiscite, this is the important thing we have a clear absolute majority in the catalan parlament to go ahead the spanish government would say he and his movement failed but in the absence of a real referendum here his supporters believe they can push ahead if we don't get a majority in votes we should question again the population of catalonia but the spanish government wouldn't let you have a referendum yes, that's the problem what happens after tonight? a new government and the beggining of the process of independence, I think Even if you don't have 50% of the votes? Yes (in this elections?) Yes, because I think it's not fair to count in votes if it's not the real referendum the ultimate threat is to decalre independence without the consent of the Spanish state it's the tactics of the pro-independence movement to try and pressure Madrid into allowing a proper referendum Tom Burridge, BBC news in Barcelona
