Regional elections see good results for PSOE but Madrid region is still in doubt

  • The PSOE was the most-voted party in all except Cantabria and Navarre

As well as Euro and municipal elections, many people were also voting for the devolved regional assemblies on Sunday. In total, 12 regions were up for reelection.

The results in these reflected more closely the national general election result from 28 April. The PSOE was the most-voted party in all except Cantabria and Navarre and the PP lost overall majorities in traditionally strong areas such as Castilla y León and Murcia.

Just as the city of Madrid was proving a headache for the parties, so was the Madrid regional election. Here the Socialists had been tipped to take power from the PP, however right-wing parties did better than expected and the PP is trying to stay in power looking for a deal with Ciudadanos and Vox.
