Six months after the policies, the Spain goes to the polls for the renewal of administrations municipal all over the country. There is also a vote to choose the new governments of 12 regionsincluding that of Madridthe Community Valencianthe Balearics not Canaries. A potentially crucial double date also in key national. Several recent surveys on a national scale they give the Pp in the head and the Psoe second, but both far from the absolute majority threshold in Parliament. In the last few weeks, either Sánchez be the popular leader Alberto Núñez Feijóo they spent a lot of money personally to seduce the last undecided in view of today’s vote. According to a flash survey of the Center for Sociological Research (public body), to the municipal authorities the Psoe instead it is given overall the first party with (30.2%), the Pp second with 27.9%, while Vox e united We can they would be in third place, both with 8%.
An important round for Sanchez – Several analysts consider this electoral test particularly significant for the premier’s Socialist Party Pedro Sanchez, arrived in the meantime almost at the end of the term together with the partners of United We Can.

A Madridon the other hand, the current mayor, the popular, starts in pole position Jose Luis Martinez Almeidawhich may however need the support of other lists (starting from the same Vox) to secure a second term.
