PNV and PSE-EE save government

  • The rise of EH Bildu has been very high, winning six representatives. But it has not been enough to anticipate the PNV. The two Basque forces will have 54 seats, 67 per cent of the votes. For its part, the Spanish right will have two more seats than the last legislature, eight.

The main question of the night was whether the sum of both would exceed the 38 barrier to form government. And the citizens of Araba, Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa who have chosen to vote yes. The PNV has lost four parliamentarians from the 2020 elections, stayed with 27, but voters have reaffirmed their confidence in the nationalist party.

Because, although EH Bildu was tied to the number of seats, the PNV has once again become the most voted party. As a percentage of votes, he obtained almost three points, some 30,000 votes. To be part of the government, the nationalists will face the door of the ordinary PSE-EE member, who also has to celebrate: the party headed by Eneko Andueza has won two representatives, with twelve. Thus, in a hypothetical investiture of Imanol Pradales as lehendakari, they would far reach the majority of the votes, 39 among them.

EH Bildu will have six more parliamentarians than four years ago, the most of all. It could form a possible government with the PSE-EE, but the socialists have already said that they would not support the government of the sovereigns.

The PP, after winning a seat, will have seven parliamentarians in the Basque Parliament and Vox has remained in Álava. Therefore, the right and the far-right of Spain will have eight locations in the Vitoria chamber, two more than the previous one, going from six to eight.

Add surprise in Álava. The EiTB survey of April, if given a seat, delivered it to Bizkaia. In February, the same survey house was delivered to Gipuzkoa.

We could have six parliamentarians in the last legislature, had eleven, and did not get any in these elections.
