Alberto Núñez Feijóo and Iñigo Urkullu were inaugurated this afternoon as the new presidents of Galicia and the Basque Country. Both leaders stood in the elections in mid-July and will govern for the next four years with the support of an absolute majority.
The Galician Parliament is thus made up of only three political groups, the PP with an absolute majority and 42 seats, followed by the BNG with 19 and the PSOE with 14.
Despite the fact that both opposition parties have voted 'no' to the inauguration, they have shown willingness to collaborate between parties to face the challenges of the coming months.
In the case of the Basque president, he faces his third term with the novelty that this time he has the absolute majority thanks to the 41 seats that the PNV adds to the PSE-EE.
Urkullu's candidacy has gone ahead against that of EH Bildu's candidate Maddalen Iriarte, who has only had the support of the 21 representatives of the coalition itself
