Separatists pushing to make Catalonia independent from Spain were on track to win an absolute majority of parliamentary seats in a regional election on Sunday, an exit poll showed.
A poll released by Catalan television channel TV3 gave pro-independence parties between 74 and 79 seats out of a total 135. A survey carried out for radio station COPE before the vote and published just after polling closed gave them between 71 and 76.
TV3 said pro-independence parties had won 49.8 percent of the vote
