Yesterday, a poll published by the Spanish national newspaper El Pais
suggests that most of the Catalans (52% to 43%) are in favour of the dissolution of
the regional parliament and the holding of elections, while 55% of Catalan respondents were opposed to the declaration of independence, with 41% in favour.
According to a survey published earlier today pro-independence parties have been seen as taking 42.5% of the vote, while the anti-independence parties would win 43.4%, according to the poll of almost 1,000 people surveyed last week by Sigma Dos and published in the newspaper El Mundo, who it must be said, is known for its anti-independence position.
Also, today, a big rally is underway in Barcelona as pro-Spain Catalans in the streets.
Anyway, it promises to be a fierce contest at the line on 21 Dec, in which the Spanish government says deposed Catalan president Puigdemont will be welcome to stay if he chooses.
Puigdemont has until now refused to accept his removal by the prime minister Rajoy and yesterday, has called for a «democratic opposition» and accused Madrid of «premeditated aggression» against the will of the Catalan people.
