The new map of municipal power is decided this Saturday. The constitution of the municipalities will confirm the pacts between different forces reached since the elections of May 28, which led to a turn to the right of municipal power. However, when there are only a few hours left for the constitution of the consistories, in several cities it remains unknown who will occupy the mayoralty.
With the available data, we update live the mayors’ offices and agreements confirmed by elDiario.es and the regional editions in the 52 provincial capitals and municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants. In total, these 153 mayors will indicate by which parties and mayors more than 25 million people will be governed and will draw a sketch of what the new map of municipal power will be like.
In how many big cities will the PP govern in coalition or with the support of Vox? How many capitals will the left maintain compared to the results of 2019? Who will be the mayor of big cities like Barcelona or Pamplona?
The following table shows who will be the mayor and, if there is an agreement, the parties involved in the coalition pact or support for the investiture. Also included is the party that obtained the most votes in the 28M municipal elections – in cities like Valladolid, Burgos or Toledo, PP and Vox have agreed to evict the PSOE, which was the force with the most votes – and the party that governed in the City Council until now. Search for your community, province or city and discover who will be the next mayor with the majorities and agreements known to date.
Is it the same to govern a city like Madrid that manages a budget of almost 6,000 million euros to a municipality like La Laguna (Tenerife) that manages around 200 million? The municipal power of each party will also be measured in the number of inhabitants that are under its mandate.
In the following graph we show the number of people who will be under the baton of mayors of each of the political formations. Only data from the 153 most populous cities that account for more than half of the Spanish population are included.
