Catalan separatists keeping regional majority in blow to Rajoy- initial results

Catalan separatists keeping regional majority in blow to Rajoy- initial resultsPro-independence parties in Catalonia were seen keeping an absolute majority of seats in regional elections on Thursday, according to preliminary results based on 52 percent of the votes published by the regional government.

If confirmed, this would be a major blow to conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who called the election in the hope that separatist parties would be losing steam.

The separatist parties were seen getting some 70 seats in the 135-seat assembly, the preliminary data showed.

Final results are expected after midnight.
