After a two-week campaign period, Catalans headed to the polls on Sunday May 12 to cast their vote. 

The results leave a hung parliament with a clear winner, the socialists, with 42 seats. 

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. 

In fourth place, the conservative People's Party won 15 seats, an increase compared to the last 3 representatives they obtained during the 2021 election. 

Other parties that have won 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). 

How did your neighbors vote? 

When it comes to politics it is no secret that certain neighborhoods lean one way while others vote the completely opposite way. Take a look at the map below to see whether your suspicions are right. Do your neighbors vote the way you think they do? 

Socialists won at 5,390 tables out of the 8,940 tables in 2,500 polling stations across Catalonia. Junts+ followed them by winning in 3,281 tables. Together with the conservative People's Party's 127 tables, these three parties won 70% of all tables in the territory.  

The new party, Catalan far-right Aliança Catalana, won 16 tables, all in the northern Ripollès county, 12 of them in the party's hometown, Ripoll, where the party's leader, Sílvia Orriols, is mayor. 

Surrounding the location of where the controversial Hard Rock complex might be built, in Vila-seca and Salou, Tarragona, people voted mostly for parties in favor of the complex. 

Surprisingly, in some areas of the Gràcia district of the Catalan capital, the conservative People's Party received more votes than the far-left pro-independence CUP.
