The Catalan elections were called to find a solution, but the only certainty arising from the results is that the problem is still the same. The outcome of the vote shows a division into two blocs, of more or less equivalent strength.
This remains true even if the electoral law puts a thumb on the scales, giving an absolute majority of seats to the separatist forces even though they got the same number of votes as their opponents. The reality is that over two million voters support secession from Spain, and more or less the same number oppose it. The Catalan crisis is moving in circles, a prisoner of two extremes that don’t seem to be trying to enter into a dialogue with each other, but instead expect the other side to give in.
It is a political draw, which certainly cannot be solved with the Guardia Civil, nor with the Penal Code, in thw way of the recent judicialization of social and political life that is becoming a dangerous trend throughout Europe.
