Catalunya make a huge step towards Independence.

The result of the  Catalunya elections  sees the Pro independence parties gaining  enough of a majority to claim to push  for an Independence election in eighteen months

The figures below are confusing because it reflects a new alliance  and coalition

The former Convergence and Union (Catalan: Convergència i Unió, CiU; IPA:  was a Catalan nationalist electoral alliance in Catalonia, Spain. It was a federation of two constituent parties, the larger Democratic Convergence of Catalonia (CDC) and its smaller counterpart, the Democratic Union of Catalonia (UDC). Up until its dissolution in June 17, 2015, it was led by Artur Mas, who is also the current President of the Catalan Government.

The new coalition of CDC,ERC and  MES  (JxSí) will be supported by the left Candidatura d'Unitat Popular (CUP) Popular Unity Candidatures

It will remain to be sen how the Spanish Central Government will react to what has amounted to a Plebiscite  and the Democratic will of the Catalan People.
 If you take the votes of the Parties  the Pro independence Parties fel short of the 50% mark but  you could probably  count a number of the who voted for parties who are ambiguous.
