Populist party Vox in Spain has gained 12 parliamentary seats in the regional election of Andalusia. For the first time in DECADES, a right-wing party, has won seats in Andalusia on Sunday. The Vox party won 12 seats which surpassed the five seats predicted.

Vox are tough on immigration and since being founded in 2014, have been called far-right, populist, anti-immigrant and anti-Islam.

The party’s leader, Santiago Abascal thinks its recent increase in support is because it is “in step with what millions of Spaniards think”.

The Socialist Party has ruled Andalusia for 36 years and winning 33 seats on Sunday were still the leading party.

However, they fell short of a majority, which means that the conservative Popular Party (PP), having come in second, could potentially form a coalition in the region with Vox and the centre-right Citizens party. The three parties hold a majority of seats.

The nationalist movement is storming Europe!
