They are usually not the bagpipes. Galicia It is consolidated because the cursed territory, the actual black gap of Vox, which can stay with out illustration on this area for no less than 4 extra years after registering a brand new setback on the polls. This is the one autonomous area wherein these from Santiago Abascal proceed with out breaking into the Parliamentand so they solely have one councilor, proof of the hegemony of the Popular Party as the one reference with electoral potential for the fitting on this area.

Vox's forecasts had been low, even supposing in latest days it was warned of the choices of reaching the final seat in La Corua y Pontevedra. Nothing may very well be farther from actuality: Vox maintains its low electoral file on this area, which was set at 2.05%, and achieves 2.19%, an “insufficient” consequence that leaves the occasion infinitely removed from the electoral barrier of the 5%.

“We cannot congratulate ourselves or congratulate ourselves,” Santiago Abascal mentioned this Sunday to summarize the fateful evening of his occasion and relate the rise of nationalism to the erratic insurance policies near the “progressive agenda” of the PP in Galicia. “It is normal that the leftist and separatist options continue to advance,” mentioned the president of Vox, who, removed from being self-critical, blamed the media, the remainder of the political rivals and even the electoral regulation for the truth that at the moment his occasion doesn’t have a parliamentarian within the Galician Chamber.

“The political scam has won,” he summarized according to the assaults launched on the PP within the closing stretch of the marketing campaign, on the identical time that he boasted that Vox “advances and becomes the fourth force in Galicia” after rising only one tenth. The consequence interprets into about 6,000 extra votes than in 2020, which, with 32,500 helps, as soon as once more stays on the parliamentary outskirts of this area, swallowed up by the PP and even overtaken by Ourense Democracywhich a parliamentarian achieves regardless of having lower than half of Vox's votes.

Broken down by province, one of the best areas for Vox had been certainly La Corua, the place it registered 2.45% after rising 0.33 factors, and Pontevedra, with 2.25% after rising 0.3 factors. In Lugo the occasion misplaced 0.26 factors, standing at 1.80% of the votes, and in Orense It fell greater than half some extent, 0.53, till the consequence was fastened at 1.51%.

The failure to ask for a helpful vote

Despite the shortage of self-criticism, the primary evaluation carried out on the coronary heart of Vox concludes that the technique of demanding the helpful vote as a brake on nationalism has hardly been profitable. Furthermore, Vox hoped to interrupt the vital twin vote that characterizes the Galician electoral processes with a view to repeat a proportion shut to five%, as occurred within the July common elections. It was not like that and Vox, quite the opposite, ended up repeating the territorial numbers from 4 years in the past.

Even although it was anticipated, the consequence doesn’t stop to signify a brand new blow for Vox, which continues to maneuver downwards: the push given by the occasion within the regional and municipal elections on May 28 – which allowed Vox to enter numerous territorial and enormous governments. mayors – was overshadowed by a extreme decline on the nationwide degree on July 23, when he misplaced 15 seats in Congress and a notable affect within the Lower House.

Since then, the occasion has not risen within the polls, Santiago Abascal has been compelled to transform his management after a trickle of exits and inside tensions, and now the occasion receives its first electoral shock of the yr, ready for what occurs. within the Basque and European ones, all deliberate for earlier than summer season.

“We are going to continue working with the same spirit, with the same determination, because Galicia deserves it,” assured the overall secretary of the occasion, Ignacio Garrigawho adopted the election evening from Santiago with the candidate, lvaro Daz-Mella. “This has just begun. We are going to make the opposition from these same streets and these same neighborhoods.”

In this sense, Abascal highlighted the “heroic” worth of the greater than 30,000 Galicians who opted for the Vox poll and promised that his occasion would run for election on this area in 2028. “We are not going to throw in the towel,” he remarked. . “We know the fight is long.”
