EFE(Update 1: Preliminary official results) Madrid

The conservatives of the Popular Party won 56 seats, an absolute majority, in Sunday's parliamentary elections in the autonomous Spanish region of Andalusia, according to figures with 70 percent of the votes counted, and the result will allow them to govern without forming a coalition with other parties.

According to these preliminary results, the Socialists will take 32 of the 109 parliamentary seats and the extreme rightist Vox party will obtain 14.

The leftist forces of Por Andalucia and Adelante Andalucia will garner 5 and 2 seats, respectively, even as the liberal Ciudadanos lose representation in the legislature in the southern Spanish region.
