Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That final count is looking unexpectedly comfortable for the PSOE. With Podemos, they are only 8 seats off a majority of 175, if I'm counting right?
With 7 Basque nationalists (apparently uncontroversial as allies) they only have to pick up the Green and a couple of other regionalists, and they won't need the Catalan separatists for a majority.

Paradoxically, although they improved their vote considerably, the overall result is a poor one for the Catalan national project.
