The PP prevails in 18 of the 26 towns in Almanzora

The European elections held this Sunday have seen lower participation throughout the country and the Almanzora region has not been the exception. In Spain more than 11 points less compared to 2019, although it must be said that five years ago, the event included the municipal elections, so perhaps the most advisable thing when making comparisons is with respect to the 2014 elections. . 

If we compare participation in 2014 and 2024, we will see that nationwide, this Sunday, June 9, participation has increased by 4.3 percent.

Once the data is revealed, we will see that in the Almanzora region, in the majority of its municipalities the Popular party has defeated the Socialist party, the two great opponents, with Vox establishing itself as a third force, a product of the strategic vote where no decides government and the voter does not concentrate the vote.

The Popular Party won this Sunday in the municipalities of Albanchez, Albox, Alcóntar, Arboleas, Armuña del Almanzora, Bayarque, Cóbdar, Fines, Laroya, Macael, Olula del Río, Oria, Partaloa, Sierro, Taberno, Tíjola, Urrácal and Zurgena .

While the socialists maintain the towns of Bacares, Cantoria, Chercos, Líjar, Lúcar, Purchena, Serón and Suflí.

Thus, in  Albanchez  the PP won with 40.54%, with 90 votes compared to the 37.38% that the PSOE obtained with 83 votes obtained. In this first case we can see that the percentages vary enormously due to the drop in participation. In 2019, 371 residents voted in Albanchez while in 2024, 226 have done so. 

In  Albox , this Sunday the Popular party won, obtaining 1,454 votes, compared to the 827 votes garnered by the Socialist party. Participation has been 40.87%, while five years ago 65 percent of the electoral roll voted. In 2019 the PP got 1,790 votes and the PSOE 1,627. The PP lost 336 votes compared to 2019, while the Albojenses socialists have lost 800 votes, that is, almost half of the support.

In  Arboleas,  the peculiarity is that the electoral roll has fallen by 894 people. If in 2019, the census was 2,196 people, in 2024 it is 1,302.
