Marta Bosquet, an MP for Almeriá, was elected president of the Andalusian Parliament – one of three arms of the 'junta,' the regional administrative body – with the support of delegates from her own party, the People's Party and the far-right VOX party.
Spanish media reported that a deal had been struck by the the People's Party (PP) and Ciudadanos: the latter's candidate Marta Bosquet will preside over the parliament, while Juan Manuel Moreno, the PP's regional leader, will seek election as president of the Andalusian Junta, the effective President of Andalusia, in the coming weeks – according to media reports.
It is the first time in 36 years that the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) has been voted out in the southern Spanish region and replaced by a rightwing coalition.

It is also the first time the far-right VOX party has been elected to a Spanish administration.
The far-right VOX party in Andalusia secured 12 seats in regional elections in December 2018 in a clear swing to the right from the electorate.
