The electoral cyclone that the PP of Madrid became yesterday with the double absolute majority of Isabel Díaz Ayuso and José Luis Martínez-Almeida has completely devastated the traditional strongholds of the left in Madrid. Neither at the regional level nor in the municipal area of the capital, the areas where the left sustained its power are still in their hands, they are all dyed blue, although the PSOE resists in several town halls.
Already in the 4-M Ayuso had devastated the red belt of the southern zone despite the dominance of the PSOE in the municipal sphere thanks to its mayors. Yesterday, far from this dominance being reduced, it continued to grow in each and every one of those squares with the exception of San Fernando de Henares, with the residents affected by Metro Line 7B, where even so the PP was the most voted force.
One of the largest increases, and the most paradigmatic for being the bastion of the left in Madrid, was achieved by the regional president in Rivas with a growth of 6.9%, going from 34.05% of the votes in 2021 to 36, 4% yesterday. Even greater was the rise in Getafe (10.98%) where 37.79% of the votes went to the sack of the popular. The same happened in Arganda del Rey (48.37% and 3.8%), Coslada (39.7% and 5.71%), Alcalá de Henares (44.04% and 3.42%) or Pinto (40 .7% and 2.13%).
In the municipalities most deeply rooted in the PSOE, the growth of Ayuso was also seen. In Parla it rose 7.2% to 36.42%; in Leganés, 4.97% to reach 37.39%; in Alcorcón, a (6.16%) that drives the PP to 43.42%, and in Móstoles, 4.54% to stand at 42.76%. Even in Fuenlabrada, where the PSOE has always governed and Javier Ayala has managed to maintain an absolute majority, Ayuso has improved his figures (1.1%) to be the force with the most votes with 36.35%.
In some of those places such as Leganés, Arganda or Móstoles, the PP will also have options to take over the City Council through agreements with Vox or with independent parties.
The same scene has been repeated in the city of Madrid, where the mayor, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, has replicated Ayuso's scenario in 4-M, almost doubling his 2019 results. The councilor has won in all districts of the capital and has dynamited all those in which it had won in the previous Más Madrid elections and the left had always become strong. Especially in the southern zone.
The great example is the two districts that make up the Vallecas conglomerate. In Villa, the mayor has grown by 167.2%, going from 12.5% of votes to 33.44%. The same situation has occurred in the Bridge, where Almeida started from 11.92% of the last municipal ones. Yesterday it reached 26.52% to be the force with the most votes, an increase of 122.5% in four years.
The rest of the southeast flank of the city, always with worse socioeconomic conditions and more inclined to the left, has maintained the same trend of absolute turn towards the blue of the PP. In Usera the first mayor has shot up to 32.76% (106.1%); in Carabanchel, 37.49% (88.2%); in Latin America, 39.42% (70%); in Moratalaz, 40.62% (77.14%); in Villaverde, 31.97% (107.8%); in Vicálvaro, 36.07% (163.6%), and in Hortaleza, 51.31% (112.46%).
With these results in less politically related areas, the councilor's results have skyrocketed in the district with a center-right sociological vote. In Salamanca, Almeida has exceeded 60% and in Chamberí he has gone above 55%.
