The end of bipartisanship in Spain is an evident reality after the expansion of new political formations. But this situation that is observed in the whole of Spain, in the Autonomous Communities and in the big cities, can it be extrapolated to the rest of the municipalities and, especially, to the smaller ones?
This paper analyzes the reorganization and the current situation of the political map of the Community of Madrid, which has undergone intense changes. For this, the electoral results of the municipal elections of 2011, 2015, 2019 and 2021 held in the Community of Madrid are studied, taking into account variables such as the percentage of votes, the distribution of seats and seats and the size of the population.
