I gather the leader of Vox was not in the debate?

This is dumb. PSOE+C's is obviously the best possible outcome for Spain, but dumb C's leadership is stopping it. At least Vox flopped.

Cs is are barely better than Vox. They've been pushing extremely far right over the last few years and aren't really a standard "liberal" party anymore.

What does it take for a party to get expelled from the ALDE?

I think you must realize that Cs is not exactly the equivalent of En Marche!, the Lib Dems or the Trudeau boys.

73.9% reporting

PSOE 24.24% 27 seats
PP 28-94% 20 seats
Cs 17.25% 18 seats
ompromís 16.17% 16 seats
Vox 10.29% 10 seats
UP 8.05% 8 seats

Left: 51 seats
Right 48 seats

Now it’s Left 52 to right 47

Are all the votes counted now in Spain or are there still votes from abroad to come that might possibly flip a seat somewhere?

Also, decided to make maps of the election by bloc. The first includes the regional parties on the left-right count.

I decided to put PNV and JxCat on the right in order to better reflect ideology even if they would never do a deal with PP-Cs-Vox.

The 2nd one is pretty much a straight PSOE-UP-PACMA vs PP-Cs-Vox affair.





You can click on them if you want to enlarge them.

I'll probably do a swing and trend map later.

Why is Murcia so rightwing compared to neighbouring areas? It was a Republican stronghold during the civil war

When do all these regional elections take place?

Also, can anyone explain why Murcia is so rightwing? Seems like a bit of a conservative island in an area that mostly skews left and that was a republican stronghold during the civil war
