MADRID, 7 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Galicians are called to vote this February 18 for their representatives in the regional parliament. The Popular Party has won every time Galicia has gone to the polls in regional elections since 1981, although on two occasions throughout history a coalition of left-wing parties has governed as the Popular Party did not have a sufficient majority.

In the legislature prior to Feijóo's arrival to the Xunta, it was the socialist Emilio Pérez Touriño who governed in coalition with the BNG (with Anxo Quintana as vice president). He did it between 2005, when the hegemony of the popular in Galicia fell for almost 16 years - after Manuel Fraga lost the absolute majority -, and 2009.
The founding president of the PP had led the Community before Touriño, after achieving his first electoral victory in 1989. Since then, there have been three new absolute majorities for the PPdeG in the elections of 1993, 1997 and 2001.
