Pro-Catalonia independence parties will win the regional election in December but are unlikely to take a parliamentary majority, a survey published in La Vanguardia showed on Sunday.

According to the GAD3 poll of 1,233 people between Oct. 30 and Nov. 3, pro-independence parties ERC, PDECat and CUP would win the election with between 66 and 69 seats in the 135-seat parliament.
