On Sunday, people registered to vote in national elections in Malaga province will choose by proportional representation 11 MPs (diputados) of the 350 in the Congreso de los Diputados, as well as four upper-house senators.
National figures feature heavily locally. First on the conservative PP party local electoral list is Pablo Montesinos, the party's national communications director, while top of the Unidas Podemos coalition list in Malaga is Alberto Garzón, national leader of left-wing Izquierda Unida.
Malaga was part of all leaders' campaigns. On Thursday, the PSOE's Pedro Sánchez was in Torremolinos for an important rally towards the end of his campaign.
