EU election exit poll: exiled Puigdemont and jailed Junqueras to get seats
Left-wing mayor Colau and Esquerra’s Maragall neck-in-neck in BCN local vote, say estimations
The exiled former Catalan president, Carles Puigdemont, will get a seat in the European parliament, according to two exit polls published at 8pm by ‘eldiario.es’ and ‘ABC’ Spanish media outlets.
The same estimations predict his former vice president, Oriol Junqueras, who is in preventive prison, to also get a seat as frontrunner of pro-independence Esquerra.
The same polls say that Socialists would prevail at a Spanish level with 18 out of the 54 MEPs at stake.
Neck-and-neck in Barcelona exit poll
An exit poll published by ‘El Periódico’ and ‘Betevé’ in Barcelona’s local election did not clarify who will prevail, as it expects a tight race between the current left-wing mayor Ada Colau, and pro-independence Esquerra, with both groups getting 10-11 seats.
Socialists (7-8), JxCat (5-6), Manuel Valls’ candidacy (5-6), CUP (0-2) and Primàries (0-2) would follow in BCN mayoral vote.
