This is a summary of Politico’s projections for the voting today in Spain:
Spain – The Projections
If the turnout of 43.81% is maintained in this vote, Politico predicts PSOE will beat second-placed PP by 1,814,654 votes. That is just 8.72% of the 20,803,868 non-voters.
Spain – The Issues
April’s elections saw the centre-left Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party (PSOE) pull off victory against a fragmented right, as well as the noisy arrival of the far-right Vox party in Spain’s national parliament. Poll watchers will now be looking to see if the country’s May mega-elections, which combine European, municipal, and regional polls, confirm the rise of Vox and the continued decline of the traditional centre-right People’s Party (PP).
