Citizens decide this Sunday the political future in 12 autonomous communities: Community of Madrid, Valencian Community, Castilla-La Mancha, Aragon, Navarra, Extremadura, Murcia, Canary Islands, Balearic Islands, Asturias, Cantabria and La Rioja. In total, 17,335,748 voters were called to the polls to decide who directs the political destiny in these territories. In some communities the regional presidency will be settled by a handful of votes. In others, the winner will have to wait to close pacts to achieve the Government. These are the keys to the autonomies that are risking their political destiny for the next four years.
Community of Madrid
Madrid voters have been giving the regional government to the PP since 1995. On this occasion, 4,839,367 voters will decide the 135 regional deputies who will elect the tenant of the Royal Post Office Building, in the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, where the presidency of the community is. Isabel Díaz Ayuso is emerging as the winner of the elections, according to provisional results. The Madrid leader would not have secured an absolute majority, with almost 2% of the vote counted. Ayuso undergoes an exam because he has set the bar too high. And success is measured by expectations. The popular leader must demonstrate if she consolidates the strength achieved in the elections of two years ago and manages to get rid of the crutch of Vox or requires the support of Rocío Monasterio (Vox). The first results, still very preliminary, give Ayuso more than the 68 seats that determine the absolute majority in the regional Assembly. On the left, the Socialist candidate improves on the result recorded by his party four years ago and takes advantage of the candidate of Más Madrid, Mónica García, to lead the opposition for the next four years.

Community of Valencia
One of the hot spots of these regional elections of 28-M. The Valencian Community is one of the territories where the polls leave open the change of Government. A total of 3,606,314 Valencians will elect the 99 deputies of the Valencian Chamber who will decide if the current left-wing government is maintained after the Botánic pact that raised the socialist Ximo Puig. Valencia has been one of the most visited squares by the national leaders of the PSOE and the PP during the campaign. In any case, the popular leader, Carlos Mazón, would need the support of Vox to govern, according to previous polls. The absolute majority is located at 50 seats. The Valencian Community is one of the few territories where participation is being lower than in the past elections. At 18.00 had left his vote at the polls 58.18% of the census, almost a point and a half less than four years ago.

A total of 1,553,573 La Mancha elect the 33 political representatives in the Castilian-La Mancha chamber to decide the political future of Castilla-La Mancha. Page has tried during the campaign to distance himself from national issues and has resorted to the water war to try to avoid the escalation of the popular candidate, Paco Núñez. The popular only scratches a couple of deputies, according to the provisional results. But Vox would enter the regional chamber with 4 seats.

The Region of Murcia was, in the middle of the legislature, the epicenter of a tsunami that dislocated the entire Spanish political chessboard by the motion of censure against the regional president, the popular Fernando López Miras.

Ángel Víctor Torres (PSOE) hopes to revalidate the Executive he has led since June 2019 when he put an end to 26 years of nationalist governments of the Canary Coalition. The socialist is leading in the polls, with possibilities, even, to expand the 25 seats it has in the regional Parliament – composed of a total of 70. It will also depend, to revalidate the position, on what its government partners do at the polls: Nueva Canarias, which aspires to increase its representation, according to the polls; Unidas Podemos, to which the polls give a slight decrease; and Agrupación Socialista Gomera (ASG), which remains stable, benefiting from the overrepresentation that the Canarian electoral law grants to the five smaller islands.
