Here are my thoughts on the Spanish General election on the 28th of April. I think the win by PSOE is quite surprising in light of the Andalusian elections, where PSOE lost control of the regional parliament of the region that was often seen as their base. The election was also a win for the Catalan nationalists, who now have the power to sway the policies implemented by PSOE by control their governmental status. One last surprise was that I thought that the far-right party VOX was going to gain more seats than they actually did. Altogether, this election was a pleasant surprise to me.
