Yesterday, the PP held on to their 7 seats with 48.29 % of the vote. The total number of votes was down to 3,504 which represented 74.49% of those eligible to vote. As the caption says, 40 more votes for the PSOE would have given them the seat awarded to the Liberal coalition.
Looking at it another way; in 2007 the PP got 1,525 votes, yesterday they got 1,666 - just 142 more but that was enough to give them 2 more seats than they had in 2007, On the other hand the Socialists were only given 1,341 votes yesterday which was 955 less than they got in 2007 losing them 3 seats. Possibly, some of those that once voted for the PSOE have changed their allegiance to the PP but also many may have stopped voting hence the reduced turnout.
