General elections are held


The PSOE, led by Pedro Sánchez, wins by a simple majority with almost twice as many seats as Pablo Casado’s PP (123 and 66, respectively). Ciudadanos, with 57 seats, overtakes Podemos, with 42, as the third-largest party. VOX will be represented in the Congress of Deputies for the first time, with 24 seats. Within Catalonia, ERC is the party with the most votes, winning 15 seats in Congress, followed by the PSC (12 seats) and En Comú-Podem and JxCat (7 each). ERC also wins the Senate elections among the Catalan electorate. As such, all the prisoners prosecuted for the 1 October referendum who had stood in the elections win seats: Junqueras, Sànchez, Turull and Rull in Congress, and Romeva in the Senate, as well as Joan Josep Nuet, a former member of the Bureau of Parliament prosecuted in a case before the High Court of Justice of Catalonia.
