SPAIN’S left-leaning Partido Socialista (PSOE) has made gains in Malaga Province and on the Costa del Sol but has broadly failed to take councils from the conservative Partido Popular (PP).

Results from yesterday’s local elections (Sunday May 26) showed the PP got the most votes in Malaga Province, a better result than in other areas which swung to PSOE.

The PP got 248,938 votes to PSOE’s 213,508. But PSOE gained nine councillors across the province, bringing its total to 484 compared to 475 in 2015 while the PP went from 384 to 396.

The centrist Ciudadanos now has 49 councillors across Malaga Province compared to the 32 it won in 2015.

The far-right Vox entered councils for the first time after winning nine seats but failed to make the breakthrough predicted by some polls and pundits, reflecting what happened across Spain.

Both the PP and PSOE made gains in the 31-seat Malaga City Council. The former increased its councillors to 14 from 13 and the latter to 12 from nine, with Ciudadanos’ two councillors able to join with the PP to get a majority.

The PP is now able to govern alone in Marbella after winning 14 out of 27 seats on its council, up from 13 previously. PSOE gained two council seats, going from eight to 10, while Ciudadanos won their first council seat.
