Election

Under Article 118 of the regional Statute of Autonomy, investiture processes to elect the president of the Regional Government of Andalusia require of an absolute majority—more than half the votes cast—to be obtained in the first ballot in the Parliament of Andalusia. If unsuccessful, a new ballot will be held 48 hours later requiring only of a simple majority—more affirmative than negative votes—to succeed. If the proposed candidate is not elected, successive proposals are to be transacted under the same procedure. In the event of the investiture process failing to elect a regional president within a two-month period from the first ballot, the Parliament shall be automatically dissolved and a fresh election called. Before 2007, the Statute provided for these parliamentary deadlocks to be solved by deeming the candidate from the party with the highest number of seats to be automatically elected.
