The Spanish Election Map

Spain's second general election in six months has once again resulted in no political party gaining enough votes to take overall control of the government. You can view how each municipality voted in this interactive map from El Diario.

One surprise in the results was that the anti-austerity party Podemos did not increase their share of the vote. They were widely expected to overtake the socialist PSOE party, who again were the second most popular party. From the map you can see that Podemos still polled relatively well in the Basque country.

Elsewhere the map shows that the Catalonian parties still dominate in Catalonia and the two main parties, the PP and PSOE, polled well in the areas where they traditionally have a lot of support.
