On Thursday, the Atlantic Sentinel will be providing live analysis and commentary of the election in Catalonia.
In addition to updating you on the results, our focus will be on analysis and opinion. We’ll be reading the local, European and international coverage of the election and share (and where necessary translate) interesting takes for you.
I hope you’ll join us! We’ll kick off around noon Central European Time.
In the meantime, here is a selection of our election coverage to get you started:
- Everything you need to know: A guide to the Catalan electoral system, the parties, their leaders and possible coalitions.
- Support for Catalan independence up, but most still favor compromise: More Catalans want to break away from Spain, but the majority could still be satisfied with increased autonomy.
- The arguments for and against independence: Arguments in favor are more emotional. Opponents point to concrete economic and security risks.
- Far left could hold the key to independence: If left-wing parties change sides, there would be a clear majority for independence from Spain.
- A failure of leadership in Spain: Mariano Rajoy should never have let the crisis come this far.
