Catalan vote pressures Spain ahead of general election

Catalan separatists dealt a bitter blow to Spain’s government by winning control of their regional parliament, sparking uncertainty and political manoeuvring Monday, three months ahead of a general election. The pro-independence movement in Spain’s richest region claimed victory in the crucial election which they vowed would lead to them declaring independence within two years despite Madrid’s fierce opposition. As the separatists celebrated in Barcelona to disco music and cries of “Independence!”, rivals lined up to seize the initiative from the ruling Popular Party (PP) which took a battering in the vote, losing eight of its seats.
