The PP has been the party with the most votes in the Community of Madrid in voters residing abroad with 19,006 ballots, achieving almost twice as many votes as the PSOE, which achieved 10,411, while Sumar prevailed over Vox. This is how it appears in the minutes of the scrutiny of the 44,833 ballots for the CERA vote that concluded this Saturday at 2:00 p.m. by the Provincial Electoral Board of Madrid.
These results confirm what was already taken for granted this Friday, the transfer of a seat from the PSOE to the PP. Finally, the ‘populares’ will have 16 representatives from Madrid in the lower house, with the inclusion of former UPN deputy Carlos Adanero, and the PSOE drops to 10 seats, the same as in 2019, and the former mayor of Alcalá de Henares Javier Rodriguez Palacios.
Madrid has been the only constituency in which there has been a change of color due to the external vote. This shift has implications for the policy of pacts, since the Prime Minister and PSOE candidate for re-election, Pedro Sánchez, will no longer be able to be sworn in with the abstention of Junts, but now those of Carles Puigdemont’s party must give his ‘if’.
