DESPITE the pro-union Ciutadans having the biggest party, the independence parties are likely retain their majority in Cataluña.
With only 36 seats, Ciudadanos cannot form a government and it is likely that Junts per Cataluña and the ERC will form a coalition with 34 and 32 seats respectively along with other independence parties.
Deposed Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont has yet to make a statement, and the leader of ERC, Oriol Junqueras is still in prison.
In a historic 82% turnout, there were no reported disturbances during the vote, which closed at 8 pm today (Thursday).
