JUNTA president Susana Diaz has won the Andalucían elections but with the worst result for her socialist party for over 20 years.

The PSOE party got just 35% of the vote as new anti-corruption party Podemos gained an incredible 15 seats.

Now Diaz will have to form a pact with the party that wishes to put her party under the microscope after decades of corruption. Or join up with the 9 seats of the Right of centre Ciudadanos party to stay in power.

In a bad night for Diaz, the insurgent purple force of change got 15% of the vote.

Describing it as a ‘move forwards’ leader Pablo Iglesias thanked Andalucía for its faith in his project.

The party will now look forward positively to the national elections later this year.

It was a worse night for the ruling PP party however, which lost 17 seats, while the IU party also lost 7 seats.
