Regional governments after the 2007 elections.

The 2007 regional elections were held on Sunday, 27 May in Spain, to elect the regional parliaments of 13 of the 17 autonomous communities: Aragon, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castile-La Mancha, Castile and León, Extremadura, Madrid, Murcia, Navarre, La Rioja and the Valencian Community. Andalusia, Catalonia, Galicia and the Basque Country did not held elections that day because they had separate electoral cycles. Local elections were held throughout Spain the same day.

The results saw few changes overall; most incumbent governments retained their majority, with only a few exceptions. The PP government in the Balearics fell, and a coalition led by PSOE took power.
