The elections of May 28 have ended with a strong blow from the left and with a considerable rise of the party led by Santiago Abascal.
Vox has the key to govern in 19 cities
At the municipal level, Vox passes 530 councilors in the elections of 2019 to 1,687 councilors. There are only two communities in which Vox has not obtained any councillor: Navarra and the Basque Autonomous Community. In Galicia it has obtained representation for the first time.
Vox councilors could be decisive for the municipal governments of Albacete, Alicante, Burgos, Cáceres, Cartagena, Castellón de la Plana, Ceuta, Ciudad Real, Elche, Guadalajara, Gijón, Huelva, Lorca, Palma de Mallorca, Segovia, Seville, Toledo, Valencia and Valladolid.

Thus, the PP is going to have to come to an understanding with Vox if it wants to govern in the aforementioned cities and communities, and it is going to have to agree after having exhibited a clumsy arrogance that could now result in the cost of those pacts was greater than four years ago. The alternative for the PP is to give up agreeing in those communities, or try to make pacts with a moribund left, which could mean an electoral punishment for that party in the general elections scheduled for the end of this year.
For the rest, these elections have served to consolidate Vox precisely when some tried to liquidate that party with all the means at their disposal, including the most lowly, as has been seen from certain media related to the PP .
