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.
