Regional administrations after the 2019 regional elections

The 2019 Spanish regional elections were held on Sunday, 26 May 2019, to elect the regional parliaments of twelve of the seventeen autonomous communities--Aragon, Asturias, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, Castile and León, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia and Navarre--, not including Andalusia, the Basque Country, Catalonia and Galicia, which had separate electoral cycles. The Valencian Community had its election held one month earlier, on 28 April, concurrently with the April 2019 Spanish general election. 814 of 1,208 seats in the regional parliaments were up for election, as well as the 50 seats in the regional assemblies of Ceuta and Melilla. The elections were held simultaneously with local elections all throughout Spain, as well as the 2019 European Parliament election.

Election date

Determination of election day varied depending on the autonomous community, with each one having competency to establish its own regulations. Typically, thirteen out of the seventeen autonomous communities--all but Andalusia, the Basque Country, Catalonia and Galicia--had their elections fixed for the fourth Sunday of May every four years, to be held together with nationwide local elections.[1][2]

In some cases, regional presidents had the prerogative to dissolve the regional parliament and call for extra elections at a different time, but newly elected assemblies were restricted to serving out what remained of their previous four year-terms without altering the period to their next ordinary election. In other cases--namely, Aragon, the Balearic Islands, Castile and León, Extremadura, Navarre and the Valencian Community--, the law granted presidents the power to call a snap election resulting in a fresh four year-parliamentary term.[3] By the time of the 2019 regional elections, this prerogative had been exercised by the Valencian Community by holding a snap regional election on 28 April 2019.[4][5][6]
