Election 20D

Partido Popular wins, but uncertainty is total

PP loses a third of seats in Congress. Rajoy intends to form a government though. PSOE loses seats, but the result is not as catastrophic as had been predicted. The C's perform less well than opinion polls had suggested. Podemos emerges as the third force. PP wins in the Balearics - three seats, but these are two fewer than in 2011.
