May 28 play repeated. PSC is the clear winner in the general elections in Catalonia While the independence movement returns to its regressive positions, Especially the Republican left.
If in May the formation led by Oriol Junqueras left 300 thousand votes on the road, then in this election, compared to the 2019 elections, it lost more than four hundred thousand votes.
Gabriel Ruffian’s nightmare has come true: the plebeians, the Catalan allies of Project Somar, led by Yolanda Diaz, defeat him and relegate him to become the third electoral force. His only consolation is that Esquerra Republicana continues to lead the independence forces above Junts per Catalunya, which remains the fourth force in this election….. Ruffian’s candidacy would have defeated Miriam Nogueiras by nearly 69,000 votes.
But despite the fact that the outcome of the independence movement is not good, the truth is that the two political factions are gaining decisive weight from this night. The fourteen deputies who joined Esquerra Republicana and Junts per Catalunya – the CUP has collapsed in this election – are the key to the majority support that Pedro Sánchez needs to invest. They will be an essential part of the complex political equation. Without them, the alternative is an unstable government of PP and Vox, along with now unlikely allies…or a blockade. “Going to new elections would be a failure,” Ruffian warned last night.
Junts per Catalunya warns it will not make Pedro Sanchez president ‘for nothing’
In light of the results obtained, and given the evidence that the policy of coordination with the government of Spain has caused severe voter dislocation – the high rate of abstention in Catalonia particularly affected pro-independence groups – it is clear that the decision on the future government of Spain will not be easy or comfortable. A period of anxiety began within the independence movement.
In the key position in which Junts and the ERC find themselves, the price to be paid for Sánchez’s support may be very high, but the cost of not favoring the progressive majority will also be very high. He will spend the summer in that dilemma.
Miriam Nogueras, leader of the Juntes, said last night: “We will not make Pedro Sanchez president for nothing. We will not move an inch.”
Meanwhile, the Peace and Security Council, with 19 deputies and more than 1.1 million votes, has become the primary ally to achieve what almost no poll predicted, namely that Pedro Sanchez will be able to improve the results of 2019 with two more deputies, 122 out of 120 in 2019.
Gabriel Ruffian warned that “calling new elections would be a failure.”
The Socialist Party won in five communities: the Basque Country, Extremadura, Navarra, the Canary Islands and Catalonia, but only in the latter did it register a significant increase in the number of deputies. In 2019, the PSC won 12 seats, this time including seven more representatives. No other community has recorded a similar increase. The Catalan Socialists prevailed in the four Catalan provinces and in more than 400 municipalities. His result is the third-best in his electoral history after
From the absolute majority of 1982
and the generals in 2008.
Soumar’s project also got a good result yesterday with 491,000 votes, 30,000 more votes than Isquira Republicana, the third force.
With a total of seven deputies, the list headed by Aina Vidal in Catalonia contributes one-sixth of the votes that the project led by Yolanda Díaz has received throughout Spain.
However, the result of the candidacy of the commons is still far from the elections of 2015 and 2016 when they were centered in Catalonia with about a million votes and became the first force. Podemos’ conspicuous absence led to his role in this general election.
The People’s Party doubles its result and gets six deputies in Catalonia; Vox keeps what it has
On the contrary, the People’s Party of Catalonia fell short of the expectations set by opinion polls. However, Núñez Viejo’s speech made its way among the Catalan electorate and nearly doubled the result of 2019. He went from two to six deputies with more than 13% of the vote. In 2019, he remained at just over 7% of the vote.
His tacit ally, Vox, got a very modest result and stayed with the two MPs he had already. In Catalonia, the right-wing bloc does not reach 20% of the vote.
