Page (1) of 1 - 12/19/14||
|A majority of people in Catalonia would vote to stay part of Spain, a poll by the regional government showed on Friday, the first in years to show a majority against independence. The margin was very slim, with 45.3 percent saying they would vote "no" to an independent state of Catalonia, and 44.5 percent "yes". It is the first time the "no" vote has taken the lead since Catalan head Artur Mas began his drive for secession in 2012. Catalans cast ballots on Nov. 9 in a symbolic vote on independence after Madrid blocked a formal referendum in the courts on the grounds it was against Spain's constitution.
