CiU excludes seperatist candidates from its lists

It's always been my theory that the CiU really has no interest in advancing actual independence for Catalunya. Sure, members of the party (including Artur Mas) will occasionally support independence personally, but it has no place in any of its official manifestos.

So it wasn't really a big surprise when Artur Mas decided to exclude independentist candidates from the upcoming regional elections.

Independiente != independentista. Follow the money: independence wouldn't increase the resources available to the governing mafia, but it would decrease outside checks on how they misuse it.
