Podemos, the winner of Spanish regional elections

Spain‘s new anti-corruption movements Podemos have made gains in local and regional elections, at the expense of traditional main parties. With the count almost completed, the governing People’s Party (PP) has won the most votes with 27%. But it may have lost the Madrid city council for the first time in 20 years.
