Madrid (dpa) - The number of people in Catalonia who are in favour of independence from Spain has decreased significantly, a poll published on Friday has found.

The survey by the Catalan government-run Centre for the Study of Opinions found that the number of independence supporters among the region‘s population has dropped by 8 percentage points since October, to 40.8 per cent.

In October, Catalonia‘s regional government went ahead with a controversial referendum on independence from Spain, despite the plebiscite being forbidden by the country‘s Constitutional Court.

Meanwhile, the number of Catalans who want the region to stay in Spain increased to 53.9 per cent. The survey also found that more than 60 per cent of Catalans want more autonomy for their region.

The survey of 1,200 Catalans was conducted in January.

Since October, Catalonia‘s independence movement has plunged the region into a major political crisis, with many companies and banks leaving the region due to ongoing instability. The Spanish central government intervened after the independence referendum, dissolving the regional parliament and calling fresh regional elections.

In the elections held December 21, separatist parties again won a majority, leaving Catalonia‘s political future to continue to hang in the balance.

Catalan separatist leaders have been deliberating for weeks about the possible formation of a regional government. The Spanish Constitutional Court earlier ruled that former regional president Carles Puigdemont, who fled to Brussels in the wake of the October referendum, could not contest the election while abroad.

Puigdemont faces immediate imprisonment upon returning to Spain.
