PremiumGalicia and Basque Country with nothing new on the autonomous front

In the north of Portugal, the PP is expected to maintain the absolute majority obtained in 2009. Farther away, a coalition between nationalists and socialists is to be maintained.

Galicia and the Basque Country hold autonomous elections next Sunday, July 12, after having been scheduled for last April, in an attempt to make it appear that everything is the same after the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the same time, there is at least the political front in both autonomies: according to all surveys, no change in the current political framework is expected in any of the regions. Thus, the Popular Party is expected to remain the most voted force in Galicia, while in the Basque Country it will be the Basque Nationalist Party to maintain the reins of governance. As far as Galicia is concerned, the only doubt that survives is the possibility of the PP getting an absolute majority or not.

Polls indicate that the absolute majority is perfectly within reach of the Galician PP, which thus maintains an enviable regional hegemony: it started with Manuel Fraga Iribarne, a beloved in Madrid, president for 15 years, and, after a brief socialist hiatus (with Emílio Perés Touriño), passed to Alberto Núñez Feijóo.
