The Navarrese parliamentary election, 2011 was the ninth election to the unicameral regional legislature of the Spanish autonomous community of Navarre. The election was held on 22 May 2011 to elect all 50 members of the parliament.

Voting was on the basis of universal suffrage in a secret ballot. The electoral system used was closed list proportional representation with seats allocated using the D'Hondt method. Only lists which polled at least 3% of the votes (including votes "en blanco" i.e. for "none of the above") were eligible for seats.[1]

The Navarrese People's Union (UPN) had formed the government of the region since the 1991 elections.[1] From 1991 onwards the UPN functioned as the regional sister party for the People's Party (PP), Spain's main conservative party. As part of the pact the PP did not contest elections in Navarre. The pact ended in October 2008 following a dispute over a budgetary vote[2] and the election was the first regional election at which the PP had stood against the UPN.[1]

The results saw the UPN remain the largest party, although it lost three seats. The Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) and Nafarroa Bai also lost ground, while the Democrats Convergence of Navarre (CDN) lost their parliamentary representation. Bildu and the PP both gained seats and entered the parliament for the first time, while United Left gained a seat.

One of the first tasks of the Parliament will be to elect the President of Navarre from among their number, with a simple majority of members required. If no candidate obtains this majority 90 days after the first parliamentary session, then the head of the list for the largest party will become President.[1]

Opinion polls[edit]

Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. In the instance that there is a tie, then no figure is shaded but both are displayed in bold. The lead column on the right shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. Poll results use the date the survey's fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication. However, if such date is unknown, the date of publication will be given instead. Seat projections are included below the % estimation where available. "–" denotes no individual figure.
