The Catalan election held on May 12 came with a landslide victory for the Socialist party, PSC, with 42 seats in a parliament of 135 MPs. 

Meanwhile, pro-independence parties, Junts and Esquerra, battled it out over the second place, with Junts coming out on top with 35 seats followed by Esquerra Republicana with 20 seats

The fourth force, which in the last vote was far-right Vox, is now the conservative People's Party after winning 15 seats, an increase compared to the last 3 representatives they obtained during the 2021 election. 

Other parties that have gained seats are far-right Vox (11 seats), left-wing coalition Comuns Sumar (6 seats), far-left pro-independence CUP (4 seats) and, for the first time, far-right pro-independence Aliança Catalana (2 seats).  

Although Ciudadanos once topped the polls in Catalonia in 2017, it did not obtain enough votes to enter the Catalan parliament on May 12

Overall, there are 135 seats in the Catalan parliament, with the majority standing at 68 representatives.
