Spanish autonomous communities election, 2011 results.svg

The People's Party won the most seats in every region up for election except Asturias, where a PP breakaway group, the FAC, was largest and Navarre, where the PP's former allies, the UPN, won most seats. The PP won an outright majority (in dark blue) in 8 of the 13 regions.

Local and regional elections were held on 22 May 2011 in Spain.[1] Local elections are held at once across all of Spain, while regional elections were held in 13 of Spain's 17 autonomous communities; Andalusia, Catalonia, Galicia, and the Basque Country have different electoral cycles.[2]

The days before the elections were marked by the protests which had been held in different cities across Spain since 15 May.

The elections were a landslide victory for the opposition People's Party (PP). The governing Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) were beaten in every region, including Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha, which the PSOE had held outright at the 2007 elections. After the election, the PP have outright majorities in eight of the thirteen regions that were up for election.

The local elections followed the same pattern, with centre-right parties winning control of all of Spain's largest cities, including Barcelona, which had been PSOE-controlled since 1979. The PSOE won only five of Spain's fifty provincial capitals. In the popular vote, the PP won by 38% to 28% nationwide.

Following the election, the PSOE held a primary to choose a new prime ministerial candidate for the 2011 general election.[1]
