Electoral participation in Spain reaches 70.18%, almost four points more than in 2019

Participation in the general elections this Sunday in Spain was 70.18 percent, almost 4 points more than the figures registered in the previous elections on November 10, 2019, when it reached 66.23 percent.

The information was provided at a press conference by the Minister of the Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, and the Government spokesperson, Isabel Rodríguez, who thanked the citizens for their participation in the polls and the normality with which the day took place.

Despite the heat and the holiday period, the influx of citizens to the polling stations was greater than expected, although it must be taken into account that in this participation 2.4 million votes by mail are computed, a historical figure in Spanish democracy.

Even so, many voters wanted to attend this appointment with the polls in person and brought forward their return of a weekend with eleven of the sixteen Spanish autonomous communities on alert due to high temperatures.

The conservative Popular Party (PP) was the winner of the electionswith 97% of the vote counted, by obtaining 136 seats, 47 more than those it achieved in 2019, and the Socialist Party (PSOE) was left as the second political force with 122 deputies, two more than in the previous elections, although the result complicates the possibility of the formation of a Government since none of the right and left blocks have enough representatives to reach an absolute majority (176).
