List of political parties in Asturias

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article lists political parties in Asturias.

Asturias has a multi-party system at both the national and regional level. There are five political parties with representation in the General Junta of the Principality of Asturias, (the communist IU–IX, progressive Podemos, moderate FSA–PSOE, liberal Ciudadanos, regionalist FAC and conservative PP) which makes it extremely difficult for any other formation or coalition to achieve an electoral majority in the parliament.
