ALTHOUGH all eyes were on Ciudadanos, the new group that appeared for this Sunday’s local elections, Almeria Province continues to be mainly red and blue.Between them, PSOE and Partido Popular (PP) took 75 per cent of the votes across the province, with PP losing some of its power and PSOE bouncing back.Although there were signs of change, it was not as radical as expected and Ciudadanos, although ending up in a very respectable fourth place with 20 seats obtained across the province, did not do as well as it hoped to.The PP kept hold of its majorities in El Ejido and Huercal, but lost them in Almeria City, Roquetas de Mar, Adra, Nijas and La Mojonera.PSOE meanwhile collected a total of 44 majorities, 41 of them absolute.Although in total votes PP was still slightly ahead, PSOE will hold 440 seats in the province compared to 432 for PP.Izquierda Unida meanwhile came third and won in Rioja, Velefique and Alcolea, with a total of 35 seats altogether in the province.
